An interior designer by training with a BFA from Parsons School of Design in NY, Toyine Sellers worked internationally from 1991 to 2006 on bespoke residential and commercial interiors. Her portfolio includes projects for Gucci and Burberry as well as Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Emernergildo Zegna and Louis Vuitton while working for Peter Marino. Toyine has been designing textiles since 2007, seduced by the pleasure of producing the beautiful materials she once specified for her clients.
Born in South Africa of European parents, Toyine grew up in Africa, North and South America and Europe. She now lives in Stockholm, from where she works closely with her atelier in France while developing her rug collection in Sweden. Toyine speaks English, French, Portuguese and Italian and hopes soon to speak Swedish.
