Charlotte Hedeman Gueniau founded RICE in 1998 a few months after her son Max was born. She and her French husband Phillippe wanted to change their lives, having lived and worked in Paris for 15 years, so moved to Odense, Denmark and founded their ethical homewares empire. Now, 13 years later, RICE Denmark has a lovely office and showroom in an old shipyard building near the waterfront in Odense. The pair design and source ethically produced products in Thailand and India and their wares can be found in the smartest stores worldwide. RICE Thailand employs 70 people, with several villages producing different collections. Holly Becker, an American freelance journalist, design consultant, and stylist, launched the decor8 blog in January 2006, and it is now an established site known as a reliable design resource with over a million page views monthly and 48,000 daily readers. In addition, Holly is a weekly columnist at Real Simple magazine online. She has also worked for a number of online magazines, including Domino and Cookie, and a television network, and she was a bi-weekly columnist for the Boston Globe in their Style & Arts section.
