ABOUT US

MAPLE JUDE & CO. IS A CURATED COLLECTION OF HOME GOODS, WHIMSICAL ACCESSORIES, AND OUR OWN LINE OF BESPOKE CREATIONS. WE BELIEVE THAT SURROUNDING OURSELVES WITH OBJECTS THAT SPEAK OF ROMANCE AND WANDERLUST ENCOURAGES US TO ASPIRE AND INSPIRE. WE FOCUS OUR PRODUCTION AND SOURCING ON USING HANDMADE AND ECO-FRIENDLY METHODS. 

MEET THE FOUNDERS

THE CO-FOUNDERS OF MAPLE JUDE & CO. SHARE A SPECIAL HISTORY TOGETHER THAT GOES BACK ALMOST A DECADE. PERRY AND JEN CURRENTLY WORK TOGETHER AS INTERIOR DESIGNERS AT JEN DALLAS STUDIO AND ARE LIKE TWO PEAS IN A POD . THEY ARE ALWAYS LAUGHING TOGETHER AND ARE FREQUENTLY MISTAKEN AS SISTERS.

JEN IS A SENSITIVE BEING AND SEES THE UNIQUE BEAUTY OF CONNECTION WITH ALL LIVING THINGS AND USES THIS INSPIRATION TO ARTISTICALLY CREATE THEIR PRODUCTS. SHE LOVES OLD THINGS; GROWING UP SHE WOULD GO TO FLEA MARKETS HELPING HER FATHER EMBELLISH HIS COLLECTIONS. AS A CHILD SHE SPENT HER AFTERNOONS PAINTING AND THROWING POTS AT THE BACK OF HER FATHER'S ART STUDIO. IN PURSUING HER CHILDHOOD PASSIONS, SHE GRADUATED FROM O'MORE COLLEGE OF DESIGN WITH A DEGREE IN INTERIOR DESIGN AND GRAPHICS. SHE HAS OVER 20 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN THE WORLD OF INTERIOR DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE. SHE IS HIGHLY SKILLED IN FURNITURE AND PRODUCT DESIGN AND HAS DESIGNED HER OWN LINES FOR STORES SUCH AS DESIGN WITHIN REACH, DESSIN FOURNIR AND SPODE. SHE STARTED HER OWN INTERIOR DESIGN STUDIO IN 2008 IN SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA. 

 

PERRY SPENT MUCH OF HER CHILDHOOD OUTDOORS; CAMPING, HIKING AND HORSEBACK RIDING. HER DESIGNS ARE STRONGLY INSPIRED BY HER APPRECIATION AND LOVE OF NATURE AND ANIMALS. GROWING UP, SHE CAME TO APPRECIATE THE CHARM OF HISTORIC ARCHITECTURE AND THE ANTIQUE FURNITURE THAT LITCHFIELD COUNTY, CONNECTICUT IS KNOWN FOR. PERRY'S MOM, A PAINTER AND ARTIST, ENCOURAGED A CREATIVE LIFESTYLE FOR HER FROM AN EARLY AGE. SHE STUDIED AT DICKINSON COLLEGE AND GRADUATED WITH HONORS FROM LOYOLA UNIVERSITY CHICAGO WITH A DEGREE IN ART HISTORY AND STUDIO ART. SHE SPENT HER SUMMERS WORKING AT AUCTION HOUSES AND YALE UNIVERSITY FURNITURE STUDY; LEARNING THE TRADES OF DECORATIVE ARTS AND DESIGN. 

JOINING FORCES TOGETHER AS MAPLE JUDE & CO., JEN AND PERRY EXPERIENCE MUCH JOY IN WORKING CREATIVELY TOGETHER AS ARTISTS ON THEIR PRODUCT LINES. AS INTERIOR DESIGNERS, THEY BELIEVE IN THE IMPORTANCE OF DESIGNING WITH LAYERS THAT MAKE UP A HISTORY AND TELL A  STORY. SOURCING UNIQUE AND VINTAGE FINDS THAT REPRESENT THE MAPLE JUDE AESTHETIC IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF EACH DAY. IT IS A PRIORITY TO DISCOVER PIECES THAT ARE HARD FOR THEM TO PART WITH; ITEMS THAT THEY WOULD WANT TO INCORPORATE INTO THEIR OWN HOMES. WHEN THEY ARE NOT ON THE HUNT FOR NEW ANTIQUE DEALERS AND SPECIAL FINDS, THEY ARE SHARING CULINARY ADVENTURES OR EXPLORING THE MANY CALIFORNIA WINE COUNTRY REGIONS.
