Garrison Center, HSU SCM Architects gets a perfect score with an Avant upgrade for Henderson State University’s Garrison Center.

Henderson State University’s Garrison Center was overdue for a major refresh. Out-of-date finishes no longer served this bustling center of campus life, home to the campus bookstore, radio station, newspapers, as well as extensive meeting spaces. It was time for the academics to call in an expert.

For designer Malia Edwards the assignment called for updated carpet that could work alongside more traditional design elements. To achieve the fresh, warm interior space she was looking for, Edwards called on Avant Contract’s Neo and the Stijl Collection. “It’s organic and current without being too modern,” said Edwards. She specified Neo, Glimmer and Glow in multiple colorways and went to work on the Center’s many halls and meeting rooms to create a cohesive look and feel throughout the center.

The renovated Garrison Center has received high marks across the board. Edwards says the collection delivered the new and updated look she sought “without being too flashy.” She credits her Avant sales rep, Tom Johnston, for recommending the perfect flooring option for this project, and is actively enrolling new projects with Avant in mind.
