In our July/August 2012 issue, we profiled a cross-section of women working in the design field from architects to curatorial theorists and a handful of professions between. One prominent figure in design today is Sandy Chilewich, co-owner (with husband Joe Sultan) of Chilewich | Sultan LLC. For over thirty years, Chilewich has found herself at the head of successful business ventures. If you've shopped for tabletop accessories, floor coverings, or legwear, chances are you've come across her work. A product innovator, Chilewich co-founded hosiery company HUE in 1978, developed the popular Ray Tray in 1997, and established her namesake company in 2000. We chatted with Chilewich about her background, design philosophy, and challenges and advantages of being a female entrepreneur.
