On Wednesday, May 15, the D&D Building in New York City is hosting a day of exciting and informative events throughout the building. In the morning, designer Michael S. Smith is celebrating the release of his latest book Building Beauty with a book signing at Brunschwig & Fils on the 12th floor. This is a perfect opportunity to pick up a copy of this exceptional book and have a chat with one of the most renowned designers working in our industry today.
At 1:00 pm on the third floor, Kravet is hosting Thom Filicia for a book signing and meet and greet. His new book American Beauty celebrates the renovation of his beloved lake side home through personal anecdotes and breathtaking photography. The Kravet showroom is also debuting a vignette designed by Thom featuring fabric and trimmings from his second collection for Kravet, which just launched.
At 4:00 pm, Lee Jofa is celebrating the new Cole & Son Fornasetti II collection with an appearance from Barnaba Fornasetti, son of Piero Fornasetti and custodian of the Fornasetti legacy. Fornasetti is regarded as an iconic and whimsical Italian brand, and the new wallpapers are not to be missed. This is a rare public appearance in the US for Fornasetti and we’re honored to host him.
