For the Architectural Digest Design Show, A New Name Reflects Greater Versatility
For its fifteenth iteration, the Architectural Digest Design Show is shaking things up with a new name. Formerly known as the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, the abbreviated title reflects an ever-expanding reach beyond the residential realm. According to Jeff Peterson, Director of Exhibitor Sales, “We hear countless success stories from exhibitors who have had their products selected straight from our aisles for the most prestigious projects — from celebrity homes to the windows of luxury fashion flagships to interior design and architecture that graces the covers of magazines and retail catalogues.”
Held at Pier 92 & 94 from March 17-20, the Architectural Digest Design Show will bring together 400 brands (over 117 of which are new exhibitors) offering the finest in luxury design from art, furniture, lighting and decorative accessories to flooring, wall coverings, and much more. The event, which is hosted by the foremost shelter magazine Architectural Digest, attracts a wide range of professionals across the residential, hospitality and retail sectors thanks to its diverse exhibitor list, which includes big-name brands as well as emerging design talents. Together, the exhibitors at the Architectural Digest Design Show cater to a variety of styles ranging from classic to cutting-edge.
In addition to the show’s abundant offerings, one of its most distinguishing attributes is its phenomenal design program. Spread over four days, guests can sit in on seminars and panel discussions featuring the industry’s top tastemakers. The series kicks off on Thursday, March 17, with a keynote address featuring Architectural Digest Editor-in-Chief Margaret Russell in conversation with Delphine and Reed Krakoff about their masterful home renovations. Delphine, who founded New York City’s interior design firm Pamplemousse Design Inc. and Reed, a well-known fashion designer, have partnered to rehabilitate numerous older homes, including Lasata, the childhood summer retreat of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The discussion will cover how they make a space feel true to its design origins yet reflective of their own contemporary, art-driven tastes as well as the extensive work that goes into such projects.
The keynote address will be followed by two other Architectural Digest-sponsored seminars — The Art of Client Relationships and How to Reboot Your Home. Moderated by Mayer Rus, West Coast Editor of Architectural Digest, the Art of Client Relationships will feature leading designers Suzanne Kasler, Vicente Wolf and Rafael de Cárdenas and will cover the best practices for maintaining positive relationships with clients from the start of a project to its completion. Moderated by interior designer and television personality Vanessa DeLeon, How to Reboot Your Home will provide insights on how to make clients’ spaces healthier, more functional and more relaxing. Panelists include Leura Fine, Founder of the design site Laurel & Wolf, Eugenio Minvielle, Founder of the food information company Innit, and Jeffrey Sears CEO of Pirch, a luxury home appliance retailer.
From Friday, March 18, to Sunday March 20, The New York Times will helm the designer seminars. The jam-packed schedule includes The New Home Technology: Cutting Edge Ways to Transform How You Live, which will be moderated by interior designer and home technology expert Campion Platt; Classic Style Today, a panel that will explore the modern face of classic style via such luminaries as John B. Murray, Allan Greenberg and Joel Barkley; and Top Ten: Celebrated Designers Pick Their Favorite New Furnishings moderated by New York Times reporter Steven Kurutz and featuring panelists Joe Nahem of Fox-Nahem Design, HGTV star Genevieve Gorder, and Mara Miller and Jesse Carrier of Carrier and Company. In addition to the designer seminars, numerous exhibitors will be hosting a variety of in-booth events, including book signings, product presentations, and more.
