A little bit ABOUT US.


We are Tara Mangini and Percy Bright, the designers and builders behind all of this beautiful work. We couldn’t be happier that you found yourself here and we hope that our work is as magical to you as it is to us.

When we started transforming spaces a few years ago, we were filled with nothing but dreams. We wanted Jersey Ice Cream Company to be so much more than the tiny online vintage shop it was. We wanted to see how our love for the past could translate to design, to fabrication, to clothing, color, and food. We named ourselves Jersey Ice Cream Company after a long-forgotten company whose embossing stamp we found at our first flea market together. And we figured we’d know that we’d come full circle when Jersey Ice Cream Company had turned into an actual ice cream company again. Frankly, that still doesn’t sound like such a bad plan. Though there are still years of growth ahead, we are proud to be a full-service design business (still with a tiny online vintage shop), and can hardly wait to see what the future holds.

We are willing and ready and truly can’t wait to take on any kind of project you might have in mind. The bigger and crazier it seems, the better. If you need us to travel across the country, we’re there. Across the world? We’re there. We’re most proud of our work when we can fully immerse ourselves in it, and there’s nothing better than that.

So to all our clients past, present, and future–to all those people who make it possible for us to do what we love and love what we do–thank you, thank you, thank you.
