Sourcing Historic Textiles

A Designer’s education never ends—nor should it! We are always looking, seeing, and traveling—constantly sourcing inspiration from many places. Diving in at the D&D (Design and Decoration) building in New York is a great way to be inspired and see what is new and offered by the many showrooms. We love to share our knowledge on the history of where many of the fabrics and wallpapers have come from. If you love design and being around all that goes into it, join us and the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) on November 8, 2017, for our popular, affordable and inspirational 3-hour course, Insider’s Guide: Sourcing Historic Textiles Insider’s Guide: Sourcing Historic Textiles and Wallcoverings, which is open to anyone who registers.

Representing over 3,000 leading manufacturers, the Decoration and Design Building is known nationally and internationally as the world’s most important home to over 130 showrooms and stands as an invaluable resource for anyone who appreciates and has a passion for design. It is hands down, the number one place to go for anyone needing or looking for design inspiration and information. All designers in the metro area should make the time to go, especially those just getting their feet wet in the wonderful world of design. For the past several years, we have collaborated with the New York School of Interior Design to provide first-hand access to the Design and Decoration Building through this course tour. Students meet with the experts and see first-hand where the originals came from as far back as the 18th century. Whether it is Fortuny from Venice, Pierre Frey from France, or Sanderson and Zoffany from the United Kingdom, you get to see, touch, feel and be inspired by these textile and wallpaper items up close.

Be sure to sign up for our “Red List” on the home page of our web site to receive announcements regarding this and other fun design education news. Keep in mind that this course also makes a great gift which several of her students have been the lucky recipient of! The link at the bottom of this blog will take you directly to the NYSID sign up page!
