Sean, one of four taste makers designed a space for the event. His space featured upholstery pieces designed by Sean, carefully curated antiques and accessories sourced from around the country as well as the fine craftsman ship and the uber talent of Grant Trick, a stunning large scale plaster piece in white which stood boldly in contrast to the dark walls of the space making a beautiful impact on the space by McKenzie Dove, and 48” x 84" “Running in the Shadows” by Ashley Finnemore layered among the texture of worn leather, movement of burled wood, and reflected the light bouncing so delicately. Working with professionals who leave room for creatives to expand their thought process, giving us a platform to broaden our reach, isn’t something I think any of us take for granted. Sean is always a pleasure and if you could bare witness to the synergy of his team, you’d know how lucky I feel to be a small part.
