#BehindTheDesign: Shawn Henderson on his vignette @ What’s New, What’s Next

On Thursday, Sept. 14, Arteriors’ unveiled its ‘Designer Interpretations’ program as part of the What’s New, What’s Next celebration at the New York Design Center.

The program calls upon designers to create curated vignettes using the full range of Arteriors product. New York-based designer Shawn Henderson was the perfect partner to collaborate with—his approach to color and texture brought a fresh perspective to the showroom.

Shawn sat down with Arteriors to talk style and inspiration behind the vignette, on display now at Arteriors NYDC Showroom.


What was the inspiration for your vignette? What themes or design elements did you incorporate?
The inspiration came from an old mural that was seen on Instagram (below). Color, texture, and pattern will be incorporated in this space.
