Interieurs introduces the Amara Collection designed by Francine Gardner and Interieurs' designer Greg Glidden
The party is over.....I always asked myself...what am i doing this for? it takes an enormous amount of energy to throw a party and to what aim? the goal of this event was to introduce our Amara Collection.
I have owned an Ethiopian wooden grain harvest for years. A few months ago, for our store opening, I placed the large ethiopian piece in the entry where it looked really stunning. One morning in june, as I walked into the showroom, I looked at the piece and suddenly I had an image of a collection based on this wooden piece....instant inspiration. I shared my vision with Greg, our in store head designer and together, we collaborated on our new collection...AMARA which is the name for Paradise in ethiopian.
The MAKENA armoire,hand carved mahogany panels.We designed the handles, hand made, specifically for this collection.
Jason Kontos, Editor In Chief of New York Spaces co-sponsored the event. Tara Guerard the incredibly talented event designer (see www.taraguerardsoiree.com)transformed the showroom into the coolest lounge on a non existing budget....one cannot find a better friend......the evening was perfect, warm with a slight breeze, candles glittering, music, great people, wonderful conversations. The terrace became the perfect night spot where guest could lounge on daybeds, deep sofas....
Estera, Interieurs design Studio project Manager designed the 20ft high background
