We hope that with each On The Fringe event we are able to share our passion for the exceptional and unique by introducing the community to individuals and experiences with distinctive points of view. Our inaugural event showcases a group of driven women who are each pushing the boundaries of their respective industries. We are excited to celebrate the hardworking women in our community while empowering others to push the creative limits in their own lives!

Using white stoneware and neutral colored glazes, Amanda Wright creates traditional forms charged with a modern spirit. It is utilitarian art intended for everyday use. With the Servitude collection, Amanda strives to create bold pieces that elevate and highlight the unique styles of subcultures and society’s fringe groups. She is constantly exploring the nooks and crannies of San Francisco to find inspiration and fresh design concepts.
Amanda originally got her start in the fashion industry and spent many years working in L.A. designing costumes for TV and movies. Eventually Amanda and her husband decided they wanted to leave southern California, opting instead for a slower paced lifestyle to raise their family. St. Helena is home to many artists and designers who are drawn to the idyllic sloping hills and vineyards. Despite being at home in wine country, Amanda’s main source of inspiration continues to be fashion.
My inspiration for each event is driven by my desire to bring an alternative design viewpoint to my community, and by hosting these events, I can show others how this aesthetic can be achieved in their own homes. When designing a space, I look for objects with edge, that add richness and quality to each of my client’s homes. At Casey Howard Designs we strive to create immersive spaces that stand the test of time, and we achieve this by continuously refreshing our knowledge of the industry.
I discovered Amanda’s work while I was working on the Napa Valley Showhouse, and I have been a huge fan of hers ever since. Her aesthetic embodies exactly what excites me in the design world! Something different, fun, and of course a little provocative. Seeing these pieces come to life has been a dream come true, and I am very excited to be able to share this very special Servitude collaboration with you all!
The Amanda Wright X CHD Servitude collection combines Amanda’s bold and sensual Servitude with Casey’s signature style, a little punk rock with a playful kick. The collection includes a plethora of pieces ranging from a killer studded skull ice bucket to an oversized ceramic fringe tray, but the cherry on top of it all, is the collection of 12 mirrors that Casey and Amanda co-designed specifically for this event. The goal when designing these mirrors was to find a way to leverage Amanda’s incredible artistic ability to create unique home accessories with personality. These pieces are meant to draw your eye, and bring a touch of design indulgence to any space.
We are passionate about this collection and encourage everyone to experiment with the bold and the unexpected within their homes. Each of these pieces are a work of art and we believe that high quality pieces, like Amanda’s, add value and a richness to our homes that we cannot achieve otherwise. At CHD we like to share the things that excite us with our friends and clients. This collection is at the heart of what we stand for, and we are blown away by the results (we hope you are too!).
