  • Arthur Satz Auditorium, New York School of Interior Design 170 East 70th Street New York, NY, 10021 United States (map)

What we think of as traditional is often rooted in a distinct English country style, with its matching furniture, distinct patterns, and saturated colors. But contemporary life has changed how we use our spaces and what we expect from them. A preview of NYSID’s 2017 spring exhibition, this panel discussion will explore how the next generation of designers may adapt traditional styles to fit with a modern sensibility, featuring Laura Brooks, senior brand manager, Brizo; Jimmy DeBernardo, senior director, Ethan Allen; Rick Wiedemer, CEO, Hinkley Lighting; Wendy Kvalheim, president & design director, Mottahedeh; Sherri Donghia, designer, Sunbrella. Moderated by Tori Mellot, senior style & markets editor, Traditional Home magazine.
