TASTE & TECHNOLOGY
Featuring Bruce Bierman, Steve Brown, and Jamie Drake, and moderated by John “Doc” Willoughby: The latest kitchen appliances perform a surprising number of tasks with greater efficiency than ever. How do architects and interior designers balance the tastes and needs of their clients with the wealth of available appliance options?
Friday, March 22, 2 pm–3 pm
THE WAY DESIGNERS LIVE NOW
Laura Bohn, Marshall Watson, and Vincente Wolf join moderator Wendy Moonan from the New York Times for a conversation about what designers do for themselves in their own homes from small, chic city apartments to expansive homes in the Hamptons–without the restrictions placed on them by clients’ taste and needs. They’ll discuss their own process, their own passions, and share intimate stories of the trials and tribulations of hiring yourself as your own designer.
Saturday, March 23, 2 pm–3 pm
KITCHENS & BATHS: EXPLORE DESIGN
Featuring designers Ronald Bricke, Charles Pavarini, and Joe Nahem.
Traditional or modern, large or small, explore what is really essential. A new kitchen or bathroom is a major investment. Following a few design rules and guidelines will almost guarantee two of the most important rooms in the home will be both functional and safe. In short, invest in a good design.
Sunday, March 24, 2 pm–3 pm
THE CHANGING DESIGNER-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP
Join Glenn Gissler, Brendan Kwinter-Schwartz, and Lynne Scalo to see how the changing economy, increasing consumer design sophistication, and the advent of online resources are profoundly affecting the working relationships between interior designers and their clients.
