Following her work with the iconic brand, Stacy was hired as Senior Designer for Richloom Contract Fabrics, where she directed the textile and pattern design collections for their hospitality division.
Blazes Own Trail
At age 26, Stacy decided to strike out on her own and founded LebaTex, a commercial textile supplier, named after her Great-grandmother, Leba. In 2004, she created the global lifestyle brand, Stacy Garcia. Both companies are headquartered in New York. Today, the Stacy Garcia design house produces designs for textiles, carpeting, wallcoverings, furniture, lighting, pillows and mosaics.

At Home in the World
Taking a global perspective on design comes naturally to Stacy. She was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, to parents who she says, “Spent a little too much time following the Grateful Dead on a motorcycle.” A descendent of German, Russian and Polish immigrants, Stacy is the mother of three boys and a recently adopted Russian daughter, and enjoys traveling with her family.
Connecting Through Design
“At the end of day, design is about wanting to feel connected,” says Stacy. “It’s a form of communication – a language. If you are part of a tribe of people, you feel more connected. I’m inspired by the designers, manufacturers and individuals with whom I work; and I hope to empower others to have the confidence to make their own connections and creations – in design and in life.”
