Jenny Kaplan, Chris Corrado (her husband), and Taisha Coombs are the creative minds behind Pieces by An Aesthetic Pursuit, the NYC-based agency and line of home design goods like rugs and furniture that set the industry all a twitter when it launched in 2017. Color and play take center stage across the collection that redefines the status quo; not every brand can make a wavy rainbow rug feel kinda neutral. Beyond running Pieces and their shoppable short term rental in her home state of Maine, Jenny's also one of our best dressed friends (no small feat).
