Every once in a while, an opportunity comes along that rewrites an entire creative process. For S. Harris, being the fabric engine that powered the Orejen Collection did just that! After years of concepting ideas, brainstorming impact initiatives, bringing multiple genius designers into the mix, and navigating a global pandemic, the talented individuals that represent the Black Artists + Designers Guild along with the guidance of our creative director, Jodi Finer, are set to debut this much-anticipated collection. A collection ripe with originality, steeped in heritage and, most importantly, responsible in its aspirational efforts. It’s our pleasure to introduce you to the talented makers behind this incredible collection...
With a background in fine arts and surface design, Shakoor Interiors Principal, Erin Shakoor, is much more than a designer. She possesses the unique ability to intuit the needs of a space, resulting in harmonious interiors with strong visual impact. Driven in part by her insatiable curiosity about the world around her, Erin made a natural transition into interior design 17 years ago. Her eye for detail allows her to approach each new project with a fresh perspective. Erin Shakoor is part of the Maker’s Movement, and in her Chicago based artist’s studio, she is designing exquisite luxury surfaces for interior design and architectural applications. Stay tuned as Erin’s dimensional wall surfaces, leathers and textiles will shortly be produced for the general market. shakoorinc.com
