J. Banks Design Group, 35 N. Main St., Hilton Head, SC.
JONI VANDERSLICE, ASID, resident and owner of J. Banks Design, founded her multidiscipline design firm thirty years ago. Since then, she has nurtured the Hilton Head Island-based operation into an internationally recognized force in residential and resort design. With fifty associates and a credo of luxury without pretense, J. Banks Design takes on a global portfolio of projects that translate resort living to home—and home to resort living.
Travel inspires Joni and provides her with fresh insight for her namesake furniture and fabric lines: The J. Banks Collection for Stanford Furniture, Abner Henry Fine Furnishings, and Kravet Inc.
Joni’s passion for design is equaled only by her profound love of family and a strong desire to give back. Her family’s latest endeavor is the Valentine Project–a mission to provide a safe, family-like home for orphans in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Joni’s latest endeavor includes the release of J. Banks Design’s first book, Southern Coastal Living. With more than 200 inspiring images, the monograph includes a variety of welcoming homes that express the distinctive personality of each owner while radiating the relaxed elegance of the Southern coastal lifestyle.
