AmericasMart Taps Designers for Seminars, Showcases
February 23, 2009,
Several designs are hosting special events and seminars during upcoming, concurrent markets — the Spring Gift, Home Furnishings & Holiday, and the International Fine Line & Home Textiles — at AmericasMart next month.
On opening day, the forum "Bedded Bliss: Industry Experts Reveal the Secrets to Sweet Dreams and Stylish Accents" will be offered at 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in room 101A on the first floor of Building 1. Here, an ensemble of interior designers and shelter publication editors will discuss their picks for beautiful bedrooms. Participants will include Manhattan-based interior designer Suzanne Kasler, who recently partnered with Surya to create a new collection of high-end area rugs, as well as Marcia Sherrill and Suze Surdyk Jones.
At another session titled "Holiday Transitions — Keep Them Coming Back," Rebecca Bull Reed, associate garden editor for Southern Living magazine, will demonstrate how to display and use decorative seasonal items and how they can transition from Christmas to Easter to the fall season. This event is scheduled for 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. March 14 in space 19-A-23 on the 19th floor of Building 1.
Also new will be the "AmericasMart Beautiful Bedding" vignette, set to feature new high-end linen collections from participating exhibitors. This display will be showcased all three days of the two markets on the first floor of Building 1.
