Our storied Orejen Collection—brought to life by the creatives behind the Black Artists + Designers Guild—has been turning heads and catching eyes with some pretty stunning installations.

ForwardSlashSubtitles_2Designer Rayman Boozer of Apartment48, wowed at Galerie Magazine's House of Art + Design on display through August in Sag Harbor. Taking on one of the main bedrooms within the impressive shingle-style estate, Rayman created the perfect balance of tension and harmony by way of carefully curated textures. Flanking the walls with Hingtham wallcovering, supported by fabrics like Pele La, Pemba Coast, and Fernroot, the room feels inviting and full of discovery.

Heading to the Berkshires, designer Linda Hayslett of LH Designs imparted a bit of her creative magic onto one of the guest suites inside the Cornell Inn. Adorning the windows in sumptuous textiles—turning to Maji and Pele La—to fashion a striking combination of statement prints, Linda infused this room with some serious mood… and we’re inn love!

Lending her discerning eye to a project that gives back in a big way, designer Beth Diana Smith recently waved her creative wand inside the Housing Works Design On A Dime Showhouse. Transforming an ordinary space into a highly curated and untraditional library, Beth flecked the space with treasures and storied art in every corner. She also turned to textile Maji when creating a textured statement on a chic chair silhouette.
