All Roads’ Janelle Pietrzak has woven a web of devotees that includes Moon Juice’s Amanda Chantal Bacon and designers Ulla Johnson and Erica Tanov. Pietrzak is now spinning her magic in Joshua Tree, where she and her partner, Robert Dougherty (a metal artist), have set up a new studio. After falling in love with the desert town years ago, the time was right in July to relocate from L.A., allowing more room in every sense. “The space, the quiet—it feels like an upgrade,” says Pietrzak. The pair shares the workspace and showroom with furniture makers Fire on the Mesa. Though new to the community, Pietrzak is finding fresh inspiration for her custom work and continued collaborations with Anthropologie. “The plants and chaparral of the San Gabriel Mountains have always influenced my work,” she says. “Now I am immersed in nature daily.” allroadsdesign.com.
