Basquiat, ArchDigest and Blogfest2011
We've always been fans of Brooklyn artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat. While in Paris this past January, we attended the Basquiat Retrospective at Musée d’Art Moderne (amaze). So, while flipping through the pages of June's ArchDigest, we took notice of quite a few Basquiats hanging on the walls of projects stretching from East coast to West - a Beverly Hills home designed by Peter Dunham and Manhattan apartment by David Kleinberg.
Yesterday, we were also able to attend a breakfast and presentation by Architectural Digest Editor in Chief, Margaret Russell. We were smitten with Margaret: from her poise, to her power (she has great influence on our industry!), to her gorgeous dress (we thought Oscar?). Hearing her perspective was an incredibly unique opportunity offered only through Blogfest2011, created and hosted by Kravet. We were completely engaged by Margaret's comments on the direction of interior design, particularly through the growth of social media, e-books, and "ways we haven't even imagined yet." Exciting! A special thanks to Beth, Jennifer, Ann and all the people at Kravet and Blogfest for this special morning! Already looking forward to the next Blogfest!
