Melinda Cox

Designer/Owner at Balanced Design


I design patterns for rugs, fabrics and home decor accents.
The designs are created in the Pawtucket studio and manufactured in the textile mills of Fall River, Massachusetts. Fabrics are hand screened in an old Rhode Island textile mill. All of the line is made in the USA, including tufted wool area rugs.

In 2007, I was pleased to be one of several designers included on the panel discussion for the landmark exhibition “hauteGREEN” in NYC and called by a showcase of the “75 emerging stars of green design”. My line has appeared in numerous local, national and international publications, including books, the New York Times, Metropolis Magazine, New England Home Magazine, Rhode Island Monthly Magazine, the “GREEN” lounge at the Academy Awards, in numerous blogs, on “DESIGN STAR” on HGTV, and on ABC “World News with Diane Sawyer”.

Rhode Island Monthly Magazine awarded the Editor's Award for "Best Rugs" to my studio in 2014.
