MEET THE DESIGNER: QUIET TOWN

Quiet Town
Lisa and Michael Fine SHOP ALL
Anyone who’s ever started their day by sliding aside a subpar plastic shower curtain can relate to Lisa Fine's decision to call the whole thing a wash and design her own. "There was nothing my husband Michael and I wanted to buy that spoke to us, so I became totally obsessed with them," explains Lisa, who cut her teeth assisting the fashion market editors and stylists at InStyle and Vogue before launching a line of color-dipped, 100% cotton shower curtains in early 2016.

Anyone who’s ever started their day by sliding aside a subpar plastic shower curtain can relate to Lisa Fine's decision to call the whole thing a wash and design her own. "There was nothing my husband Michael and I wanted to buy that spoke to us, so I became totally obsessed with them," explains Lisa, who cut her teeth assisting the fashion market editors and stylists at InStyle and Vogue before launching a line of color-dipped, 100% cotton shower curtains in early 2016. It was immediately obvious that her geometric-patterned, machine-washable pieces struck a nerve, and Lisa’s side hustle quickly became a full-time gig. A photographer by trade, Michael joined as Lisa’s business partner to help meet the crazy demand (the pair also have two young children, which always keeps things interesting!). Says Lisa, "He was really rad—he saw me do it by myself for a while, and he was like, ‘You need some help.’”

The pair’s love of travel is key to the line—the name, Quiet Town, is a reference to their affection for outta-the-way spots, and each new design is named after one, like the Marfa curtain done up in Josef Albers-eque squares. “We’re constantly curating and collecting. Whenever we travel, Michael is always looking for beautiful textiles,” says Lisa. The newest fruits of their labors? Geometric-patterned throw rugs, ethically woven in India, that offer another perfect way to give your day a fresh start. For Lisa, it’s all about ending the cycle of buying things you feel ‘meh” about: “We don’t want to add more ephemera to people’s lives. Why not invest in something that you use everyday that will make life easier, better, nicer?” —neha kulsh
