Eva Franco grew up in the colorful world of gypsies and caravans in Transylvania until her Hungarian family escaped the communist repression and came to the States, settling in Connecticut.

Today Franco has a 90 piece collection that is sold in over 400 specialty stores including Tokyo and Singapore. Her company occupies a 3000 square foot airy loft space in downtown Los Angeles, which Franco calls a “lab of creative possibilities.” She gleans inspiration from her collection of artifacts including Moroccan tiles, antique tea pots, china, century-old ribbons, and vintage textiles.  She’s filled the workspace with a library of books on butterflies, bird illustrations and stencil work. “I’m always looking for interesting ways color comes together,” says Franco. “I love to study the recombination of color, the freshness of color in nature.”
