Invitation to Design In New York

Invitation to Design In New York: Uptown Downtown, November 11 - 13, 2009

New York’s abundant art and design welcomes a select few interior designers for “Design in New York: Uptown Downtown” November 11 – 13, 2009. Here’s what Kelley Proxmire, a design leader in Washington DC said about last Spring’s program:"Design in New York is stimulating – both intellectually and inspirationally!"Join me as we bridge design’s eras of Enlightenment, Modernism and Edge. We start uptown in the Beaux Arts on our private tour of the Frick Collection and New York School of Interior Design; then downtown to find innovative material, fiber and artisanal craft in the Musuem of Art and Design; eventually transported to design’s most contemporary edge in Tribeca, SoHo and the MeatPacking District of art and fashion.All the while wrapped in the comfort and style of the very new and very vanguard Standard Hotel. Town Cars – pampered. Alluring?“I loved Design in New York! It was fabulous from beginning to end,” Tobi Wells Fairley, ASID, IIDA

Last March, Design in New York was an intimate experience for a select few interior designers to arouse their creativity while enriching their businesses—and what better place to be stimulated than in New York City – the fusion of design and business.See the pictures; read about the places and people. If your visits to New York are too rare, or you long to be inspired this way, join us. This immersion in design will be especially good for you and your business, right now.“This experience gives us the time to do things we normally would not do, but that are so important to our business,” Laury Barnes, Newport Beach CA.Design in New York is an intimate experience for interior designers to learn, observe and collaborate on the business of design—arousing their creativity while enriching their business skills—and what better place to experience the best of the best than in New York City – the world’s fusion of design and business.
