About Trove: Founded in 2006 in New York City, Trove is led by Jee Levin and Randall Buck, who are both accomplished artists and the creative force behind the brand.
Randall Buck, a multi-media artist who works in time-based media, envisions pattern from an architectural perspective and engages technology in an effort to return the design work back to a finished form, which is tactile, distinct and inspired. The company employs technology that pushes beyond conventional manufacturing limits. Buck believes these innovations are essential to his evolution as a designer and the possibilities are limitless.
Jee Levin, who applies her technique and philosophy of painting to wallcovering design, seeks to create wallpaper that breaks all the rules by reimagining the current language of wallpaper from repetitive graphic patterns to organic imagery with less repeat and more of the random. Depth and perspective replace geometry and line. Trove has won several awards, including three Good Design awards, two Editor's Choice Awards for ICFF, and an Architectural Products Product Innovation award. Trove has also won a NeoCon Silver award for their “Vivid” collection for KnollTextiles. Two Trove patterns have been acquired for the permanent collection at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and three Trove patterns were featured in the 2010 Triennial exhibit. Six Trove patterns were acquired for the permanent collection at the Brooklyn Museum.

A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Annie Kantor earned her B.F.A. in Textile Design in 1994. Her professional experience in the contract textile industry includes designing woven upholstery and panel fabrics, most recently as Head of Custom Studio at Maharam. Currently based in Oakland, California, she brings her textile-design expertise to the realm of metal via AJK Design Studio Inc.
Frustrated by the lack of enticing designs in metal while seeking elements for a personal architectural project, Annie discovered an opportunity to apply her expertise in repeating-pattern design to develop a line of interior custom metal work. From that impetus originated a series of custom heat registers and vents, inspired by and created with tools linked to the textile industry.
Today she brings her signature designs and custom creations to architects and interior designers who want every detail to matter.
The process begins with inspiration from her surroundings and a general awareness of patterns in her environment. Whether inspired by a shadow on a tennis court or based on the design of a striking tiled floor in Istanbul, each design starts with a hand-drawn sketch or painting. This important step ensures a bit of her own hand in the finished product. The artwork is scanned into a CAD program specifically configured for textile designers, which is ideal for creating patterns in repeat. The final product, manufactured in the US, utilizes either precision laser or water-jet technology as a means of cutting her patterns out of metal.
