Dallas Market ARTS Awards
Drumroll, please: It is award season, and we are thrilled to say we are not missing out on the accolades! We nabbed two ARTS Awards during Dallas Market, one for Lighting Fixtures and the Green Award, which makes us particularly proud because it recognizes our efforts to make our showrooms as environmentally friendly as is possible. Take a moment to read this past blog post that explains how diligent Anna Thrower has been in sourcing sustainable products.
With Dallas just behind us, we’re looking to the other two winter markets during which so much is happening. We’ll fill you in in case you are in Atlanta or Las Vegas. If you are, please stop by even if you can’t make it during one of these celebrations of design.
During Atlanta market at AmericasMart, we’ll hold a cocktail reception in our showroom (Building 1, Suite 14F10) following the “Ahead of the Curve” discussion on January 16 from 3 to 5 pm. The talk, which includes panelists Courtney McLeod, Chad James, and Brynn Olson, will be moderated by Luxe Interiors + Design’s Southeast Homes Editor Kate Abney. Located in Building 1, Floor 14, 14-D-9 Seminar Space, the influencers will explore the latest in home design trends and share their top finds from Atlanta Market from 2 to 3 pm. You can even earn CEU credits for attending this talk. Our reception will take place immediately after what is sure to be an insightful hour.
Cultured Collaborative will present the Artist & Designer’s Summit 2020 with the Black Interior Designers Network in our Atlanta showroom on Saturday, January 18, from noon until 2 pm. Following the panel discussions, we’ll have a mixer, so stop by for the enlightening conversation that will include Monica Jacobs-Driskell, Barbara Elliot and Jennifer Ward-Woods, Tavia Forbes and Monet Masters, Darcy Harris, Melissa Mitchell, and Jeanna George, and plan to stay for a libation.
Las Vegas Events
During Las Vegas Market, we will hold our renovation celebration and ribbon-cutting for our newly expanded showroom (Building C, Suite 398) on January 26 beginning at 10:30 am. Join us to toast the new digs and applaud the hard work our design team has put into what promises to be another glittering space to showcase our products, the effort led by our Vice-President/Creative Director Cecil Adams. Also on the 26th, from 3 to 5 pm, our award-winning furniture designer Aimee Kurzner will be holding court! This is a terrific chance to meet this talented creator of some of our most popular furniture and find out what makes her tick.
Also in Vegas, we are sponsoring the “Be the Light” Round Table and holding a lunch reception in our showroom. The discussion will be an illuminating celebration of triumph over adversity with three of the design industry’s most inspirational talents: Wendy Glaister, Kerrie Kelly, and Laura Muller. The talk, which will be moderated by Gail Doby, will take place in the IMC Seminar Room C174 from 11 am to noon on Monday, January 27. The event will feature a thoughtful discussion and celebration highlighting how these three dynamic business owners find peace, fulfillment, and success as they have worked through traumatic events in their personal and professional lives.
With an eye toward philanthropy, women’s empowerment and corporate citizenship, these women are challenging the status quo and putting their lives at the forefront of socially conscious stewardship. During our lunch—from 12:30 to 1:30 pm—donations for the Genesis 50-20 Foundation supporting women effected by domestic violence will be accepted. As you can see, we’ll be quite busy meeting and greeting all of you across the country during the next few weeks. We promise to work in some beauty rest so we are refreshed when the showroom lights go on to create that sparkle we love when it’s time for Market!
