JZD:MERCANTILE – Jim Zivic & Tiffany Wheat
JZD:MERCANTILE, an extension of Jim Zivic Design, is a new home accessories collection with roots in a “materials trifecta”: leather, felt & industrial hardware. Zivic’s interest in functional material and industrial, agricultural, and commercial forms influences his design aesthetic, and artisanal talent and small domestic factories bring it to life. The collection is inspired by Jim Zivic and Tiffany Wheat, his wife and business partner since 2005, live/work style. The impetus for designing smaller products for the home has been the couple’s recent shift to a bi-coastal life. They now spend the school months in Berkeley, CA where Tiffany grew up, and summers at their 150-year-old farmhouse and studio in upstate New York. The JZD:MERCANTILE collection is made in the USA and assembled in Delaware County, NY.
