Arteriors Home Present The Laura Kirar Collection
During this past market in High Point, North Carolina, Arteriors Home unveiled their latest collection that collaborates with interior designer Laura Kirar. This trend of licensing continues to gain momentum where designers are not merely relying on client based design fees and commissions, but outsourcing their talents much like a celebrity or sport athlete endorsement, without the paparazzi! I can't really imagine a hoard of reporters tracking a designer down to hear what the latest color trend is, but they are definitely a source of inspiration for others.
Laura Kirar is a Miami and New York based designer, the founder and creative director of TRU Design and brings to the Arteriors Home collection a mix of metals, finishes, and organic shapes that are represented in lighting, accessories, and wall decor. A sampling of the 90-piece collection below. I am loving the Seed and Leave chandelier as well as the metal lotus flower. Enjoy!
