Blogfest 2011 - Traditional Home presents The Heritage Collection


Last week, one of the highlights of Blogfest2011 was the opportunity to meet with three of our very favorite past guests on The Skirted Roundtable. On Tuesday, we were bussed out to Long Island City to Mayo Studios for Kravet's launch of the Lee Jofa Heritage Collection,  hosted by Traditional Home magazine.  Six designers who have previously done lines for Kravet/Lee Jofa were asked to update a classic Lee Jofa fabric and then create a vignette around the fabric, which was photographed for an upcoming Traditional Home. On hand were David Easton, Diamond & Baratta, Eric Cohler, Suzanne Kasler, Suzanne Rheinstein and Thomas O'Brien. Each designer kindly met, stood for photographs and signed autographs with the bloggers in attendance.

I beat a path to the fan lines of SRT alumni Suzanne Rheinstein, David Easton and Suzanne Kasler, all of whom couldn't be nicer.

All these vignettes were created in a big, cavernous loft space - it was a lot of fun seeing what these design icons could do in such small spaces.

Mayo Studios is a photography and design studio that specializes in the home design products:
