Founder – PURE Inspired Design
There are designers who focus their talents on exceptional quality and there are designers who sacrifice quality in order to be affordable to all. Samantha Cobos successfully blends both quality and affordability with her modern, organic line of eco-friendly home furnishings.
As the founder of PURE Inspired Design in St. Paul, Minn., Cobos is an exceptional artist who not only designs for the way we live today, but also for the way we want to live in the future. Her understanding of the importance of providing U.S.-made, eco-friendly products that are fresh, fun and accessible makes her a trusted resource for customers who wish for a “greener” lifestyle and a life-with-style.
For almost 20 years, Cobos has honed her craft in an ever-changing industry. She is a driven designer whose passion for the creative can be traced to her elementary years when she spent countless hours mapping out detailed floor plans of her childhood dream home. Though she later would excel in fields that made little use of her exceptional artistic abilities, she quickly realized that sacrificing her true talents was simply unbearable.
After years of study, research and lots of hard work, Cobos launched her own interior design firm, which ultimately became a true reflection of her personal commitment to lead a more environmentally responsible existence. At a time when most were unable to source or afford the high-costs associated with designing eco-friendly interiors, she worked tirelessly to source what little was available and would later determine that she would create her own line of eco-friendly home furnishings.
Cobos work quickly and within two years opened a design studio at International Market Square, the largest interior design marketplace in the Upper Midwest. Interior designers flocked to her studio and were exceedingly impressed with her work and detailed approach to design. Her variety of custom, eco-friendly upholstery, rugs, and fabrics, gave the design industry a new eco-friendly option for their own high-end clientele, but Cobos wanted to broaden her reach and truly make an impact in the everyday world.
Today, PURE Inspired Design is a true reflection of Samantha Cobos. She perfectly blends her modern, fun, style and love for the environment with quality and affordability. Her growing collection includes organic fabrics, eco-friendly furniture, wool rugs, and home accessories - all made from the very best materials sourced most often from U.S. providers. Continually expanding her reach and her design offerings, Cobos is a rising star who will, no doubt continue to create a better world through her beautiful design and environmental sensibility.
