About Meredith H Erickson

My Work

My work focuses on lifestyle home decor. I advise on Life style trends, finishes, and help grow or invent product categories.   I love materials, and I design product you want to touch because of the glazes, finishes or unique material combinations.  Creating product to be enjoyed for a lifetime is my motivation. I facilitate retailers with the product and designs they need to grow their business.  In addition to home product for retail, I design custom bespoke product, and advise on interiors.

I created a process for the development of Thoughtful Product  that addresses the environment and an emotional connection with the customer.

I thirst for eco-friendly solutions. I have travelled the world, and I have expansive material and manufacturing knowledge from metal casting to basket weaving. Beautiful items can be made with recycled materials, and I find new ways of bringing them into the home. Check out the Sustainable tab.


I have 20 + years of experience, designing trend based home decor for specialty retailers,  and a deep understanding of customer experience. With a Masters in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute, my strength is in creating new product lines, market research, and evolving existing product categories.

As a Brooklyn native I am continually energized by the creativity and spirit around me. When I'm not working with clients, you'll find me wandering museums and galleries, organizing an Eco Fair, or teaching at Pratt Institute.
