Amanda Brown

In 2007, Amanda Brown began Spruce, a custom upholstery shop and design studio in Austin, TX. With an education in Architecture and Art History and professional upholstery training, she has combined design and upholstery to create a fresh aesthetic for interiors receiving acclaim from publications such as The New York Times, Metropolitan Home, Southern Living, Good Housekeeping, and Country Living, to name a few.

As a DIY contributor on and Design*Sponge, and author of Spruce: A Step-by-Step Guide to Upholstery and Design (Storey Publishing, Fall 2013), Amanda welcomes furniture enthusiasts to share in her knowledge and create a lifetime of picture-perfect spaces through custom upholstery. When she's not working with clients, upholstering, teaching classes, or working on her next instructional DVD, she can be found beating the Texas heat with an ice cold brewsky, hubby and toy poodle, Pixie, in tow.
