Product Design has become a serious passion for the J. Banks Design Group’s founder Joni Vanderslice and when we have news of new products, the posts go under this tag.

Product Design in the J. Banks Collection

The collaborations with manufacturers that produce products for the J. Banks Collections include upholstery and casegoods for EJ Victor and Stanford Furniture, which are Inspired by projects and personal travel. The upholstery pieces for Stanford are comfortable, functional and timeless; and meant to be utilized in both contemporary and traditional settings, as well as residential and hospitality venues.

Her new releases for New Ravenna are a direct reflection of her design philosophy: home as resort and resort as home. Joni designed the 15 patterns in this collection with three themes in mind: waves, trellises, and palms. Our design team visualized her concepts into mosaics through various applications of color, texture, and shape.

Wall pieces for Paragon Art mixes motifs were inspired by journeys our design team has taken traveling and working around the world. With this collection we are bringing the outdoors inside through a blend of contemporary and traditional styles. All pieces are reflective of elements found in nature—water, wood, palms—through various applications of color, texture and shape.

Banks Design collaborated with Kravet to create Tanzania, a line of ethnically themed performance fabrics and trims inspired by Joni’s many trips to Africa. The graphically stunning patterns and textures emulate traditional African tribal designs. The patterns and textures of Tanzania beautifully mimic Kente clothes from Ghana, wood carvings from Zanzibar and the colors of the Serengeti Desert. Kravet has committed to donating a portion of the proceeds from the Tanzania Collection to The Valentine Project.
