Seminars

A: Hand-Knotted Area Rugs, Hand-Tufted Area Rugs and Machine Made Area Rugs:  The Good, Bad and the Ugly, CEU- 102780 (0.1 CEU Credit)              Presenter: Chris Frederick & Stephanie Bryant Company: Organic Looms

Christopher Frederick and Stephanie Bryant from Organic Looms will discuss hand-knotted, hand-tufted and machine made area rugs.  The presentation outlines area rug history and origins, construction methods along with advantages and disadvantages of each variety.  At the conclusion of this lecture designers will be better equipped to make recommendations for their clients based on quality, budget, timeline and investment.

B: The Art of Hiding Technology, CEU- 100966 (0.1 CEU Credit) Company: Sound & Vision

Home electronics should integrate seamlessly into a home’s design and décor. This course reviews the three-pronged approach to hiding technology—advance planning, design philosophy, and product selection—which are available for minimizing the visual impact of electronics without compromising performance.  Specific challenges and recommendations related to hiding video displays, projectors, speakers, controls, cameras, and equipment racks—among others—will be addressed.  This course speaks to innovative and creative ways to lessen the visual impact of electronics by making them low-profile, hidden or camouflaged, or even invisible!  Attendees will also walk away with an understanding of how to properly engage a trained electronic systems contractor (ESC) in their next project.

C: World Tour: The Hottest Designs from the World’s Top Markets, CEU- 100193 (0.1 CEU Credit) Presenter: Deb Barrett

See the latest new product introductions, color and material trends from some of the world’s leading design shows through both photos and actual sampling. This whirlwind tour brings the latest design themes to you, outlining how certain products and style references develop from one show to the next.  Get your hit of international inspiration with reviews of Cologne, Paris, Milan, Frankfurt and London, as well as some of the top US markets, all without having to walk endless miles of aisles.

D: 20th and 21st Century Handcrafted Wallcovering, CEU- 101190 (0.1 CEU Credit) Company: Maya Romanoff

This course will provide an overview of 20th & 21st century wall coverings, illustrating the canon of work, trends, and usage.  From block printing to hand painting to inlaid materials to natural fibers to fine art and more, we will explore the world of handcrafted wall coverings and reveal how they have evolved.  We will also explore how best to use wallcoverings in design and examine the various methods of manufacturing.  The course will end with a live wallpaper making demonstration by Maya Romanoff artisans.
