September 25th : Treasured Objects: Storytelling Through Design.
Sheltering in place has sparked a movement to rethink our spaces and pare down the objects that inhabit our everyday lives at home and work. The shift isn’t necessarily about minimalism, but a greater sense of what is important to us.
Is there a greater appreciation in interior design for considering fewer and more meaningful objects? How can designers guide clients to choose wisely, or reuse and repurpose? How do we stop specifying throw-away pieces that end up in landfills? How do we authentically choose with meaning and sustainable practices?
Our panel of professionals, from various backgrounds and viewpoints, will lead a lively and thought-provoking conversation on this topic.
