Embark on a journey through the vibrant landscapes and rich culture of Oaxaca, Mexico with ShawContract’s Cultura collection.

Inspired by the region’s artisans, architecture, and surroundings, each design radiates with the vibrance and spirit of its origins. But, the adventure doesn’t stop there – dive into the Material Edit collection, where artistry meets functionality in a seamless fusion of form and texture.

Join ShawContract’s product designers, Erin Helm and Amanda Hopkins, as they collaborate to redefine possibilities in resilient and carpet tile designs. Together, they’ve curated colour palettes, experimented with shapes, and crafted layouts that transcend the ordinary, resulting in collections that breathe life into any space.

Welcome to a world where imagination knows no bounds – where every design tells a story.


Using the Sherwin-Williams Anthology palette as inspiration, Laura Foster, a Toronto-based artist, has painted one-of-a-kind chairs for this event. Laura’s artwork is inspired by textures and organic shapes found in nature. She uses a combination of techniques to replicate nature’s patterns to create visually stunning original artwork.

Laura joined Sherwin-Williams in 2014 and her artwork can be found in private collections in Europe, Australia, the United States, and Canada.
