As the days are being counted down and the finishing touches are being put on the Blogfest 2011 activities, several exciting cocktail parties are planned. A few top designers who have collections with Lee Jofa will be on hand for a meet and greet.
Atlanta based designer Suzanne Kasler says, "a room should be collected, not decorated." She incorporates her clients' collections easily into the design, incorporating antiques, contemporary furniture, and beautiful textiles, often layering the same color in different tones. The result is contemporary chic with a classic touch. Suzanne has had a very busy few years expanding her company and introducing products to market.
Los Angeles based Suzanne Rheinstein finds inspiration for her Lee Jofa, Hollyhock II collection from the antique textiles she has collected. Suzanne decorates with a Best of the West Coast luxuriousness meets casually elegant sophisticate by deftly melding antiques with linen and light colors. I know she believes very strongly in the importance of an art history background as the basis for all good design. I had the pleasure of hearing Suzanne speak and she does so with a passion and child like wonder that is infectious.
New York based and internationally recognized Hall of Fame architect and designer David Easton has long been known for his classic, elegantly proportioned English interiors, but he has recently shifted to a streamlined, less complicated, modern look in response to his clients' changing taste. His versatility in his fabric collections is as varied as his projects, all will stand the test of time.
Part two will explore the remaining three designers with beautiful fabric collections thru Lee Jofa that will be wining and dining with us bloggers; what fun!
Would LOVE to hear your views on my new blog design!!
