Why the number 17?
I'm Nellie Talbot, and at age seventeen, I knew I wanted to be an artist. I talked my parents into letting me use a spare room of our house as a creative space and became an industrious worker. Now fast forward past me graduating from Virginia Tech with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design and a minor in Art History to me using that same spare room to start Industry Seventeen. To me, design is a way of life, and creating is what I love to do. Industry Seventeen combines vintage and modern aesthetics to provide original home decor products with an heirloom feel that are guaranteed to make a statement.
