“I’m inspired by things from my past and from every day,” says designer Michael Aram, who unveiled an impressive array of collections ranging from his collaboration with Artistic Tile to his eponymous jewelry, tabletop and debut textile collections. “I spent a lot of time outdoors, gardening and simply being out in nature,” he says of his organic orchid and lily motifs. “Since my early days as an artist, my work has always been about life, regeneration, the elements, the contrast of light and dark, and the idea of creation.” Here, Aram shares the seeds that spark his interest this season.
