Storied, Not Staged: The Business of Welcoming History and Soul into the Home” 
What’s old is cool again! While the lure of antiques has never completely gone away, the sleek silhouettes, painted furniture, and edited appointments of design’s last iteration made the hallmarks of antiques a little less usable. But now they’re lauded for their timelessness. Add modern-day makers to the design equation. Carbon copies of catalog spaces and showrooms are used as a springboard with the intention of personalization. Join Traditional Home Senior Style and Design Editor, Krissa Rossbund as she leads a discussion about ushering soul into the home, either by things that were handmade 100 years ago, or things that are handmade now. She’ll be joined by designers Anne Hulcher Tollett, Denise N. Gordon, and Joshua Smith, as they dive into understanding and translating their clients’ design wishes and adding personal details that will make their home theirs. They’ll talk antiques, handcrafted pieces, art, and design bells and whistles like passementerie, and how to find room in your client’s budgets to obtain them. 
Moderator: Krissa Rossbund, Senior Style and Design Editor of Traditional Home Speakers: Anne Hulcher Tollett of Hanover Avenue, Joshua Smith of Joshua Smith Interior Design, and Denise N. Gordon of Austin Gray Design Group
