A small group of interior designers has been invited to participate in the Design in New York: Uptown, Downtown workshop next week, November 11-13 and Lane Oliver is thrilled to be included among these esteemed designers.

At the Uptown, Downtown workshop, designers will be schooled in the the styles which have influenced New York through the generations, from Beaux Arts to Art Deco to Bauhaus.  While touring the Frick Collection, the New York School of Interior Design, the Museum of Art and Design, as well as Tribeca, Soho, and the MeatPacking District, the designers will find knowledge and inspiration at every turn.

For three days, the focus will be on artistic knowledge, creativity, and accumulating experiences to draw inspiration from.  As they are immersed in culture, art, antiques, fashion, and business, designers will get back what interior design really means to them.  Drawing upon each other and everything they see, designers will be inspired and excited.

The last day will focus on a business practices workshop. This economy can be tough for those in creative fields and luxury industries, but with the right tools and approach, designers can remain busy.

Hosted by Steve Nobel, the Design in New York workshop should be a fabulous experience which result in endless inspiration for future projects and friendships forged between talented designers.
