Getting Inspired

As creatives, we are consistently seeking inspiration to create products, designs, or simply fresh ideas for something the market hasn’t seen yet. Just left High Point Market or a local art exhibit with bundles of photos that quickly get lost in your camera roll? You are not alone! There are infinite possibilities out there for places and ideas that inspire us, but many struggle with figuring out the best way to apply that inspiration. This panel discussion, moderated by Hillary Linthicum Mancini of Peace Design, will give four unique perspectives about where to find inspiration, how to apply it, and how to sell it to your clients.

Panelists include:
Julie Witzel, J. Witzel Interior Design • Joseph Guay, Artist

Atlanta, GA 30309

Some believe the kitchen should be a serious place, for serious work. A chef’s domain, dedicated to preparing the perfect dish. Others believe it should be treated like a gallery for gazing. A shrine to taste and style meant to be seen but never touched. In the traditional world of luxury appliances, the kitchen hasn’t changed. Unfortunately, the rest of the world has.

We believe it’s time to remodel.

To upgrade not just cabinets and countertops, but expectations. To throw out the old ideas of what a kitchen should be and reimagine its place in the home and purpose in our lives. A space built for entertaining. A place that’s as fun as it is functional, as spontaneous as it is stylish. An open invitation to come together and cook up not just great dishes, but engaging conversation, spontaneous laughter and new stories.

Creekstone Cookers was founded in 2004 as a result of my own love and passion for AGA cast iron ranges. I have had the pleasure and fun of cooking with one in my own home, as well as designing memorable kitchens for my clients around their AGAs for the last 22 years. With great food and friends, I hope to demystify these beautiful ranges for my trade colleagues and ultimately, their clients. Voted by the BBC as one of the 3 most iconic design products of the 20th century, the AGA range shares this honor along with the Volkswagon Beetle and the classic Coca Cola bottle. This, in addition to a phenomenal 100 year history and a brand new generation of products, AGAs future is brighter than ever. I hope to pass on my enduring love of these unique and beautiful ranges. I really believe that there are a lot of AGA aficionados out there who just don’t know it yet!-Laurie Lehrich Ample parking behind building.

Location: MoDA
1315 Peachtree Street
Atlanta, GA 30309

Co-Hosted by Design Collective and the Museum of Design Atlanta

The design of the physical environments in which humans live, work and play greatly impacts health and wellbeing. Too often, however, design supports unhealthy rather than healthy habits and practices.

Architects, interior designers and urban planners are responding to this problem with active design, an approach to the development of buildings, streets and neighborhoods that makes daily physical activity and healthy foods more accessible and inviting.

Please join us for a discussion of these featuring the following panelists:

• Moderator: Laura Flusche of MODA: Executive Director

• Panelist: Kyle Brooks of Blackcattips: Artist

• Panelist: Dan Hourigan of Midtown Alliance: Director of Transportation and Sustainability

• Panelist: Garnie Nygren of Serenbe: Director of Operations

• Panelist: Basak Alkan of Perkins+Will: Urban Designer

This event is FREE and open to the public, but registration is required.

Design for Healthy Living, on view at MODA until August 9, 2015, explores the impact of the built environment on human health and presents specific design strategies that are used to promote routine physical activity and healthy living.

The exhibition provides real-world examples from Atlanta and beyond that demonstrate these design strategies in use and highlight the impact that design is making on the health and well-being of communities.

Among the Atlanta projects featured in the exhibition are the Atlanta BeltLine, Serenbe, Lee Street Re-Design, Wheat Street Garden, and others.

This highly interactive exhibition — which features an installation by artist and designer Tristan Al-Haddad of Formations Studio — will encourage participation and dialogue as visitors consider the spaces they use each day and how these spaces can be used to improve their health and well-being

Switching It Up

Switch Modern has relocated and expanded. The new showroom, nearly six times larger, is just a stone’s throw away at 670 14th Street. The proprietors Roy Otwell and Doug Henderson have their service-oriented approach and the e-commerce arm to thank for keeping it top-of-mind for modern furnishings. Otwell credits shopper support to this anomalous growth, noting, “It’s just another sign that Atlanta has joined the ranks of cosmopolitan world cities.” He and Henderson have met ardent demand with more than 80 contemporary lines, ranging from from edgy new arrivals like MDF Italia, Walter Knoll, and Paola Lenti, to contemporary classics including Flexform, Poltrona Frau, and Edra. Also notable are shop-in-shops for Alessi, Poliform/Varenna, and Kartell; an expanded array of tabletop accouterments; and a display for outdoor furnishings from B&B Italia Outdoor, RODA, and Gandia Blasco.
