If you read our blog in the past few weeks, you heard us talking about Midwest Home Magazine’s Design Week, a week long celebration of local design through a series of events. On Sunday, LiLu participated in the kick off event at the Weisman Art Museum. Lisa worked with the ASID event planning committee to produce several seminars for event participants to learn more about design.

Lisa hosted the Design Live event where participants were presented different options for furniture pieces and were given the task of selecting pieces for an imaginary living room. As votes were tallied, the vignette was being built LIVE at the Weisman Art Gallery.

Participants were passionate about design and the voting got a little heated! Here is the end result based on audience votes:



A BIG thank you to Midwest Home, ASID, Crown Warehouse, Floral Logic and the many International Market Square showrooms and other vendors who lent furniture and time to this event:
