Celebrating in New York City with TRADhome magazine's ten favorite designers, the New Trads

Out & About in NYC 
to celebrate with 
TRADhome magazine's 
favorite rising star designers, 
the New Traditionalists!

It's that time of the year again when TRADhome magazine hand-picks and names a small group of designers, the New Traditionalists. I was invited to share a celebratory lunch with the editorial team, the designers and the Hunter Douglas group who sponsored our event and luncheon at the swanky restaurant ABC Kitchen in downtown Manhattan last week.  

TRADhome (Traditional Home magazine's online creationhas worked hard to bring together both traditional design with a modern sensibility in an on-line format that is easy-to-read and very current.  Please be on the look-out for these 10 designers who hail from all corners of the country and showcase a plethora of varying talents -- I love that!  

Happy Nesting
