Rooted in curiosity, sacred geometry, the natural world, and all things soulful, ethereal, and light-filled, Mineral Forest brings a sense of wonder and beauty into your everyday environment. Specializing in the creation of modern, organic collections ranging from distinctive lighting fixtures to accessories and home furnishings, we collaborate with other gifted makers and artisans, uniquely qualifying Mineral Forest as a design hub in the eclectic South and beyond.
Upon completing a degree in Hospitality Management at Ecôle Hôtelière de Lausanne, Switzerland, founder Patricia Jaliu’s experience in the luxury hotel industry led her to be on the opening team of Barndiva in Healdsburg, CA, where she honed her focus and creativity in design and art. Subsequent studies at Otis College of Art & Design in Woodworking, Interior Design and Mid Century Modern Architecture culminated in launching Mineral Forest with her first lighting collection in Los Angeles, CA. Also a certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, Jaliu infuses her passion for holistic philosophy, Feng Shui, and Eastern healing modalities into her work.
Currently based in Athens, GA's energetic creative community with her husband and young son, Patricia works out of her studio in a 100 year old house in the Five Points neighborhood and also documents her Modern Design discoveries in the South on her blog.
