It wasn’t long before this passion had her designing patterns and starting her own business. “My designs are primitive and primarily for a country house,” she shares. But, she adds that some of her rug designs have been displayed in contemporary homes, creating an interesting juxtaposition of styles.
When the family moved to Lollipop Farm in Vermont, Lucille opened a rug-hooking studio and shop. In the picturesque studio on the property Lucille offers workshops throughout the year. She explains her goal is to “expand your knowledge on what makes a rug a true primitive and to create an instant antique rug. These classes focus on ideas gleaned from American classical rugs, American folk art, and American history—all of which are incorporated into my original designs.”
