As the founder of Paradigm, Trista Jones Manigault has been creating colorful design spaces, furnishings, and art since 1999.

The Paradigm brand is a distinct and stylish stamp on the 21st century approach to home decor.  Combining color, texture, patterns, personality, and fine art.  Simply put, Trista creates one-of-a-kind room designs.

The artistic room designs of Paradigm have been showcased in Homearama Luxury Edition - Cincinnati, national magazines, trade publications, and many luxurious homes nationally.
