Inside Tribute Goods

ABOUT TRIBUTE GOODS

Born of an appreciation for images and textiles that touch a core within, Tribute Goods is a luxury Italian linen company based in Houston, Texas. Residential interior designer, Karen Pulaski, launched the company with the intention of sharing her love of art and beauty through creative collaboration with fine artists, seasoned linen purveyors, Italian graphic designers and printers. She has developed meaningful themes and exquisite artwork that evolved into distinct collections. What began with a few scribbles has become one-of-a-kind works of art that are digitally printed on a canvas of the finest Italian textiles. Our many successes now include the NY Now “Best New Product Award,” the Neiman Marcus cover for Spring Home Catalog 2015, Paper City “Best in Product Design” by esteemed judges Rachel Ashwell, Jan Showers and Barbara Westbrook, Modern Luxury Interiors “2017 Best Bedding Design,” and several featured editorials.

OUR VALUES

With quality and artistry as our priority, we chose to source our textiles and fabricators from among the best in the world.

Honoring the rich tradition of luxury textile production, our workrooms in Italy have been in existence since the mid nineteenth century. The benefit of our vetting process is that each item we produce is made to last a lifetime!

ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Pulaski has an interior design degree from the University of Texas at Austin. She is an allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), and has had private clients in New York City, Los Angeles, and Texas for more than two decades. She has also served as a trustee, board member, and event chairperson for numerous Houston organizations, including the Museum of Fine Arts, the Contemporary Arts Museum, the Children’s Museum and the AIDS Foundation. Merging two of her passions, Pulaski often pairs clients with emerging artists to inject soul into living spaces, layering the storied and old with the fresh and modern.

About the artist:

A native Texan, Nancy Ruby completed her education in San Antonio with a BA from Trinity University where she studied art with a concentration in painting. From there she lived in Houston and worked in the interior design business first as a custom rug designer, then as owner of a decorative painting company. A full time resident of Sedona since 2008, she continues to develop her painting, which is largely abstract. “I paint what I want to learn about myself and about the world around me, it is my chosen path of self expression, a report of my experience.“
