Designer Details INSPIRE on our radar

More than any other High Point Market in recent memory, Spring 2017 was filled with designer launches. From fashion design icons Badgley Mischka and Alexander Julian, to interior design rock stars Windsor Smith, Celerie Kemble, and Steve Leung, their diverse collections are connected by one element: details. I was fortunate to be able to video interview many at market as part of the Design Bloggers Tour which allowed me to explore how these launches exemplified their design philosophy, what their favorite pieces are, and why. by Jana Platina Phipps

Celerie Kemble

Interior designer Celerie Kemble is a wondrous mix of her Palm Beach upbringing, Harvard education, Manhattan sophistication, and jaunty, hard-working-mom demeanor. She is the first female celebrity designer to collaborate with Eastern Accents, the Chicago-based soft goods manufacturer. Her philosophy is an accessible one, “In life as in design, it is not perfection you should be after. There’s beauty in the faded and worn, the well-loved, and the sentimental... After all, life has seams. Your home should be like a loosely woven fabric of desires, memories, practical notions, and even compromises.” 58 | | July + Aug 2017
