Kris Nations proves you don't have to be from Paris of New York to be fashionably inclined. The Texas native spent much of her earlier years traveling to a variety of art shows and galleries with her artist mother. Her passion for the fashion industry quickly erupted into a great talent, as she began designing pieces that conveyed her true sense of individualism. Currently found in more than 80 specialty stores nationwide, each piece of jewelry is uniquely crafted to her own personal style. Inspiration for her collection comes from family and friends.

About Mod Mom
I’m an ex-marketing executive turned self-taught furniture designer/builder. After leaving the corporate world in 2003 to spend more time with my kids (then 1 and 5), I spent some time doing freelance marketing work as well as being a nanny to help make ends meet. After doing some research and realizing that, at the time, only two companies sold modern style toy boxes, I decided to give furniture building a try. After all, the potential profit from one toy box equaled three days of nanny work and provided me with a much needed and missed creative outlet. Woodworking wasn’t that foreign to me because my father, a self-taught carpenter and woodworker, built most of our furniture when I was growing up in Ohio. From him, I learned to not fear what you don't know. So I bought a table saw and the rest is history.

For three and a half years, I built everything myself but I’m excited to announce that I recently partnered with a fantastic Amish furniture manufacturer in Ohio to produce all of my designs! (Check out the AMISH MADE page for all the details!)

I'm proud to say my eco-friendly furniture has not only been featured in magazines, TV shows, and modern design books but is being purchased by families, celebrities, and interior designers from around the globe.
