As the founder of Dallas-based Woven Laine, Laken Vanderwall creates gorgeous, covetable wall hangings. (We think they’d look great in your place.) Woven Laine is a one-woman show that began less than two years ago, when Vanderwall happened to swoon over a vintage wall hanging one day—her husband bought her a loom and some yarn, and a passion was born. Today the wall hangings are a must-have on décor and style bloggers' lists.
What inspires your designs?
I really enjoy fashion, so if I see someone wearing colors that look really great together that I wouldn’t picture together, I jot it down. Or if they had texture. I like vintage Native American textiles, the patterns they were able to create. I like the way shapes can fit together.
