High-end furniture manufacturer Alden Parkes today announced it is partnering with tableware giant Replacements, Ltd. to debut an innovative new concept, ‘Dining by Design’ inside Alden Parkes’ showroom at High Point Market. The companies are giving eight notable design partners free rein to inspire how to dine, gather and entertain by blending Alden Parkes’ beautiful collections with Replacements’ massive inventory of tableware and accessories.
“After the success of our ‘Showhouse in a Showroom’ during fall market, we wanted to add an additional design element and a partnership with Replacements, Ltd. felt like a natural fit,” says Lynne McArdle, President of Alden Parkes. “I’m eager to see the finished product after our talented design partners marry our furniture with Replacements, Ltd.’s stunning array of product.”
The eight design partners include:
- Cynthia Ferguson from Cynthia Ferguson Designs in Toronto, Ontario
- Elle Cole from Elle Cole Interiors in Dallas
- Lauren Clement from Lauren Nicole Designs in Charlotte, NC
- Steve and Jill McKenzie from McKenzie Design in Atlanta
- Mikel Welch from Mikel Welch Designs in New York
- Michael Mitchell and Tyler Hill from Mitchell Hill in Charleston, SC
- Ruthie Staalsen from Ruthie Staalsen Interiors in Dallas
- Young Huh from Young Huh Interior Design in New York
“We are thrilled to partner with Alden Parkes as we share an appreciation for beautiful design and quality products for the home,” says Replacements’ Chief Marketing Officer Linh Calhoun. “This partnership allows us to work with more designers in spaces that uniquely inspire. By bringing together our massive inventory of more than 450,000 patterns with Alden Parkes’ beautiful collections, we’re giving these amazing designers the tools to create an incredible mix of diverse looks and style choices. This will be a must-see stop during market.”
Designers are also incorporating unique pieces from Capa Rugs and the Louise Gaskill Company.
In addition to ‘Dining by Design,’ Alden Parkes again challenges interior designers to create settings for and inspired by Alden Parkes’ beautifully crafted casegoods and upholstered furniture for their ‘Showhouse in a Showroom.’ The ‘Showhouse in a Showroom’ guest designers include Rajni Alex, Jeremy Bauer, Jason Clifton, Shayla Copas, Lisa Kahn, Kerrie Kelly and Keia McSwain.
