Interior Designers Forum in San Francisco

The Interior Designers Forum 2004 will take place on July 17, 2004 in San Francisco. The subject: "The Intersection of Modern Design and Tradition: What's modern now?"


Interior designers from California present new works that are provoking or perfectionist – but they set trends in any case. Diane dorrans Saeks, the editor and author of numerous works in the field of interior design, will lead through the search for answers to the question "What's modern now?" Presentations will show a broad spectrum of work extending from private spaces to public buildings. The Forum pursues issues like the inspiration of the interior designer in discussion rounds: how do I develop new ideas, fulfill challenging tasks and design any interior in a way that it becomes memorable and, at the same time, custom-tailored for the client and space? Among the agenda points of the day are "A new Glance at Modern Glamour", "A Passion for Antiquescollections and Re-interpretations" and "New Perspectives on Landscapes and the Poetry of Space". Among the lecturers are:

- Steven Volpe, Steven Volpe Designs

- Ann Getty, Ann Getty Interiors and Ann Getty House

- Julie Dowling und Lorissa Kimm, Dowling Kimm Studios
