Although we aim to celebrate women every day at Domino, this International Women’s Day seems like as good a reason as any to really draw attention to some fantastic women in the design business. From interior designers who transform homes every day to artists creating work that celebrates women to business owners prioritizing a unique and progressive approach in the workplace, there’s no shortage of badass women doing awesome things in the world—so naturally, creating this list was quite a process.

If you want to buy something absolutely stunning by an admirable lady or just want to get a little inspired, see ahead for Domino editors’ favorite picks for powerful, creative women entrepreneurs you should totally know about this Women’s Day.

Kenesha Sneed of Tactile Matter

“I first discovered artist Kenesha Sneed years ago because of her ceramics, and I have been obsessed with her work ever since. Whether it’s drawings, pottery, or even textiles, Sneed’s work has a very organic vibe, featuring soft lines and muted colors. She currently has a limited-edition print available from Of a Kind, and is selling a cotton bloom throw through her site Tactile Matter.

If you’re going to make one purchase on International Women’s Day, may I suggest her Women Print?”

Jessica Dailey, Digital Editorial Director

The Decor Adobe by Angie True

“This Etsy shop, curated by plant mom Angie True of the Instagram account Madre de Plantas, sells a carefully curated selection of vintage goods that would be a perfect addition to any boho chic home, from baskets and blankets to stoneware and tapestries.”

– Jessica Dailey, Digital Editorial Director

“Vega” has Been a hot rug on our website and one of our favorites to date. On a side note: We are getting ready to shoot our home Reno project this weekend. This is a good week to see my best @carlaypage, I won’t lie and tell you it was a simple process. We may have been washing our dishes outside for 4 months and slept on a mattress that our son peed on 6 times. I’m sure these are things people don’t share about home Reno’s but you know me. I don’t beat around the bush. Thankfully at the end of it all we get to curate a space that feels like us and most of all, allows us to bring everyone and their brother into our home. We knew from the beginning when we chose a house with a pool it wouldn’t just be for our own enjoyment. Can’t wait to show you guys.

Veronica Hamlet, Semikah Textiles

“Not only is Veronica a kickass #GirlBoss in her own right as the head designer and owner of hamlet interiors and semikah textiles but she’s bringing other women’s work and stories to the forefront through her business. She has a strong passion and amazing eye for Moroccan design, and hand picks the textiles for her shop primarily from women designers in Marrakech. Women supporting women PLUS the most stunning rugs you could ever dream of… honestly, there’s nothing better.”

– Lydia Geisel, Digital Editorial Intern

Pai

“There are so many incredible, badass women in the beauty and wellness industry making huge changes. One of my favorite sensitive skincare lines, Pai, was founded by Sarah Brown, who legitimately trained herself in cosmetic formulations to take her sensitive skin into her own hands. From a converted garage in West London to an international, best-selling brand.”

– Kristin Limoges, Associate Lifestyle Editor

The Nue Co

“Female entrepreneur and founder of The Nue Co, Jules Miller, was inspired by her own IBS to create a supplement company that had the least amount of processing and highest amount of effectiveness. In just a few short years, she’s created one of the most effective and regarded wellness brands in the world. (And the packaging is seriously legit.)”

Tribe Alive is a sustainable lifestyle brand for women, designed by women, and founded by the amazing Carly Burson, a former J. Crew designer.”
