Destiny Lynn Seymour MID BA LEED AP
Destiny Seymour is an Anishinaabe interior designer based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Destiny holds a Master of Interior Design from the University of Manitoba.
She worked at Prairie Architects Inc. for over 10 years as lead interior designer before starting her own design business, Indigo Arrows, in 2016.
After struggling to find materials that she could incorporate into interior design projects, Destiny began designing artisan textiles that respectfully reflect local Manitoban Indigenous communities and their history. Indigo Arrows now offers a range of table linens, pillows, and blankets that showcase patterns from local Indigenous pottery and bone tools that date from 400 to over 3000 years old. For thousands of years, Indigenous people in Manitoba have created beautiful patterns to adorn their pottery and bone tools. Most of these surviving pieces are held in private collections and museums. Using a variety of materials & mediums, Destiny hopes to revive these ancient patterns to provoke thought, bridge gaps, inspire and empower.
