Founded by Andrea O'Connor and Paula Colloty. Kindred spirits and lovers of all things beautifully designed especially if made in fabric.

Paula and Andrea started making cushions as gifts for friends' children and they received rave reviews from both parents and kids alike. This lead to orders and Design Divas Create was born.
