About

Kevin Francis Design is an Atlanta-based product design studio founded by design blogger Kevin Francis O'Gara. After years of penning his acclaimed blog Thou Swell, Kevin founded KFD with an inaugural collection of unique maze-inspired tufted rugs. These original rug designs, inspired by famed real and mythical labyrinths from around the world, were released in five classic colorways with handmade wool and bamboo-silk construction. The studio has since released southern garden-inspired candles with one-of-a-kind scents like Boxwood and Hydrangea, large-scale abstract paintings, and playful art prints from Kevin's photography and collage collections.

Founding Story

In 2018 Kevin founded his eponymous product studio Kevin Francis Design at the age of 21, in collaboration with a local rug company. After months of searching for the perfect inspiration, an aerial image of the gardens at the Château de Villandry struck him and the debut Labyrinth Collection was born. With its roots in myths, meditation, and lush landscapes, these verdant designs are brought to life with luxurious wool and bamboo silk rugs that preserve the asymmetries of each maze in their patterns.
