Isaac Mizrahi

Known for his sharp wit and penchant for bright colors, fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi is “all about exuberance. We only have one short life to live, and we shouldn’t waste it being tasteful.” (Apartment Therapy). The combinations of electric-hued garments in plaids, stripes, and color-blocked solids translate seamlessly into fabrics for the home. Bold without apology, Isaac’s collection for S. Harris calls for attention, inviting you to heed his mantra to go all out!Isaac Mizrahi Head Shot

Amy Lau

Amy Lau, renowned interior designer & co-founder of the Design Miami fair, is an art-lover at heart. When designing a room, Lau relies on abstract art and nature to provide her with inspiration, taking cues from expressive use of color and organic shapes. Slightly retro in nature, Amy’s patterns for S. Harris reference the past, but the punchy colors keep them fresh and modern.

Robert Kuo

Deemed the Imperial craftsman of the 21st century, furniture designer and artist Robert Kuo pulls from Chinese artistic traditions and the Art Deco period when creating his unique furniture. Using a technique of hammering decorative relief onto metal, Kuo creates one-of-a-kind pieces that have captured the eye of leading architecture magazines and S. Harris. Kuo’s fabric line for the manufacturer reflects the movement and metallic nature of his furniture with flowing lines and gilded textures.
