Monica Hofstadter Doucement

Soft, slow and sweet: Doucement (which means “slowly” in French) is an independent Brooklyn basesd textile art and design studio founded by textile artist Monica Hofstadter in 2016.

Hofstadter creates textile objects that “blur the line between minimalist art and decadent creature comfort”. Her textural creations are made by hand in New York City from beautiful natural fibers and radiant plastics, with the perspective that the artificial should be treated as luxurious and rare. Inspired by the love of being home, creating serene moments for the senses, and the magic and spirituality of the tangible world.
