I was pretty excited when I found out that the American Craft Council was working with interior designers on a unique project called Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft. They partnered with nine interior designers to create eight rooms inspired by a carefully-selected piece of craft.
This kind of reminds me of the HGTV white room challenge. Each designer started with a blank, 10×8-foot white space and a beautiful craft piece made by a participating show artist. Each room will give context to the handpicked pieces of fine craft, bringing the art to life while capturing the interior designers’ and architects’ unique styles, whether contemporary, classic, elegant, or eclectic.
The designers are:
- Lisa Bakamis of Lisa Bakamis Interior Design
- Mimi I. Chen of Three Legged Pig Design
- Lauren Geremia of Geremia Design
- Nicole Hollis of Nicole Hollis Design (read Nicole’s Friday Five)
- Steven Miller of The NWBLK
- E.B. Min, AIA, and Jeffrey L. Day, AIA, of Min | Day
- Melina Raissnia of Peace Industry (find out more about Peace Industry here)
- Nicole Socia of Socia Design
We have a special sneak peek at some of the designs:
The rooms will be showcased in the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco during the American Craft Council Show on August 2-4, 2013.
