Spotlight on Top Business Owners in
Design, Art & Photography



Name: Zuedi Cocking

Location: Bronx, NY 

Type of Business:
Rugs and home decor and lifestyle accessories to match

What does your business do?
I design rugs and then use the same graphic for home decor products i.e shower curtains, glassware, duvet covers etc. as well as lifestyle accessories like baby bottles and handbags.

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
I have a wall against my living room with shelves and baskets and pattern ideas. My foyer will be my photographic and vignette space.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
Right now I dont have any extra funds to finance this business. I am trying to build an audience organically but lets face it you gotta pay to play.

What's the most fun part?
I love design. Its why i went to school for interior design. And I love to see how my designs look translated on different products.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
I want to build a solid brand known for beautiful design, excellent customer service and hopefully expand into my own interior design and product design company where I can weave rugs, build furniture and sell all in one place,

What advice do you have for others?
Jamaicans have a saying. Nothing beats a try but a fail. I am sure there is a similar American colloquialism but Im sure you get the drift. If you never at least try you will always have doubt. Instead of thinking about "what if it doesn't", think "what if it does".

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
I am hoping that this site will live up to the name and provide ideas when I cant think anymore.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Art Institute of New York

Prior jobs or business?
I am currently a Business Development Manager at a car dealership. Previous to that I have over 10 years sales experience.

Favorite Food?
Escovitch Fish

What are your pets' names?

Do any of these pets help with your biz?
Well one of my products is a dog bed.

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
I just dont want another boss. I need to control my own life and future. If I can work so hard for someone else imagine what I can do for myself.
