We’re Going Coast to Coast with Colony

We’ve teamed up with Colony, the NY-based community of independent furniture, lighting, textiles and objects designers, for a fun road trip to explore the United States in the name of design, discovery and inspiration. In the upcoming season, Colony Founder and Curator Jean Lin and the Colony team will travel through an itinerary of cities and burgeoning design communities across the US seeking new expressions of American design, art and craft—making stops in cities such as Detroit, MI; Nashville, TN; Jackson, WY and more, in search of the most exciting new talent that the great expanse of our country has to offer. Their adventures and discoveries will be chronicled here on Design Milk.

Are you based in any of these cities or do you know someone there that we should visit? Designers and artists along the tour route can submit their work through [email protected] to set up an appointment with Colony’s creative director, Jean Lin. She will be scouting for upcoming curatorial projects in New York City and possible publication in Design Milk.
