Western design lovers, mark your calendars now. The best in furniture, fashion, and home décor this side of the Mississippi will converge at the annual Western Design Conference in Jackson, Wyoming, September 5–8, 2019. Makers, collectors, interior designers, architects, fashion designers, and anyone with a love of the West will mix and mingle during the four-day showcase that “magnificently captures the spirit of the West, honoring artisans and their handmade pieces that range from cowboy to contemporary styles,” according to the event press release – a statement with which we completely agree.
Lucky for those of us with an affection for home interiors, returning to the event schedule from last year is the Designer Show House. Once again, a to-scale house will be constructed to feature rooms professionally designed by interior designers.
The Western Design Exhibit + Sale magnificently captures the spirit of the West, honoring artisans and their handmade pieces that range from cowboy to contemporary styles.
“From turquoise tile to intricate antler sculptures to antique rugs, the Designer Show House will feature a range of furnishings, accessories, and handcrafted goods from interior design firms throughout the West and across the nation,” WDC Executive Director Allison Merritt told C&I. “Designers will collaborate on the style and ambiance of five rooms included in the life-size model home. Guests are invited to peruse the home at their leisure throughout the event.”
Tickets are $15 for an Exhibit + Sale day pass; $125 for VIP entry and reserved seating at the Opening Preview Party + Fashion Show; $50 for general admission.
