Amy Mellen

Creative Director, Calvin Klein Home

As creative director of Calvin Klein Home, Amy Mellen oversees all design for the classic yet directional brand, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Capturing inspiration from travel, nature and art, Mellen is responsible for everything from fabric and furniture to table top and home fragrances as well as a number of special items for the Calvin Klein Collection flagship store. Mellen joined Calvin Klein as a Senior Designer in 1999 after five years as Design Director at luxury fashion brand Adrienne Vittadini. Climbing the ranks to her current title in 2009, she now leads her design team with a hands-on approach often painting, sewing and drawing many of the original prints and designs. We tapped Mellen to lend her eye and curate a collection of her favorite items from 1stdibs, including Agnes Martin prints, Jean Prouvé chairs and vintage Turkish kilims. Scroll to see her picks, then head to The Study to follow Mellen's travels and see the sources of her inspiration.
