TN designer Lori Paranjape, and L.A. based Interior/ Textile designer, Chris Barrett, created two delightfully different areas, showing off our modern side. Record ticket sales benefited numerous educational and modernist preservation organizations in CA through Modernism Week,

For the Little Rock Symphony Designer Show House, Lawrie Rash and Whitney Edwards of Ken Rash’s in Little Rock created a retro-inspired look with Double Decker umbrellas in a keyhole valance. The soft blue color set the tone for the resort-like setting, creating a tranquility and peacefulness. The Symphony Show House raised money for children’s programming.

Kips Bay Palm Beach Show House, in Palm Beach, FL debuted with SBD umbrellas gracing the loggia at the request of Miami based Outdoor Living Designer Fernando Wong. Fernando selected Double Deckers in colors complementary to the house, and added a keyhole valance to “add a historical reference to this 1920’s mansion.” The inaugural event benefited both Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach.
