Stephanie Hall, head designer and Chief Operating Officer, has been instrumental in developing our interior design department into a full-scale, year-round design house for both residential and commercial clients. For the past 18 years, she has been curating the Looms collections each season. Her design aesthetic, which can be seen in our Main Street retail showroom, has been featured in many beach cottages and off-island homes alike. Her ability to mix and match contemporary pieces with classic cottage style furnishings resonates with long-time Nantucket Looms clients while appealing to a new generation of clientele as well.

Brooke Gherardini brings to the team her extensive experience in color theory, design, art and textiles. A West Coast girl turned Island resident and world travel enthusiast, she enjoys the simple things year-round Nantucket life offers - the quiet of winter after the hustle and bustle of summer, dinners with friends, hiking, biking, painting and a good movie. Growing up with her family’s business - a beeswax candle company with a large retail store concentrated on home decor, Brooke’s career in interior design began from an early age. Having later worked in Nantucket landscape design, Brooke’s aesthetic draws inspiration from the natural environment and seasonal colors of the island. A commissioned artist, graduate of Fine Arts from the University of Montana and from California College of the Arts where she studied textiles, Brooke’s understanding of color and texture is second to none. She loves to push the limits on design and brings an exciting, versatile and vibrant style to the Nantucket Looms design team.
