ISES 8th Annual Designer Showcase – A Color for Every Season
Every year ISES (International Special Events Society) hosts a Designer Showcase event called, “A Color for Every Season”. This event is meant to gather and inspire top event professionals from every aspect within the event industry.
For this year’s event, DesignWorks chose to showcase a shabby chic table design that combined the minty tones of this year’s color trends with the charming rustic accents of nature. Beginning this table design was a picturesque wooden table top accented with soft meandering lines. This charming table top was displayed upon a pedestal base wrapped with a muted print of flowers adding a perfectly shabby chic touch to the design. Creating harmony within the design was the table’s centerpiece arrangement, which mimicked the floral patterns on the pedestal base and was carried into suspended floral arrangements coupled with softly glowing battery operated candles. Charming wooden cross back chairs were placed around the table design for a simply elegant and rustic touch. An element of surprise was added to this beautiful display as a select few of the chairs were dressed with fancy white covers, again capturing a sense of that shabby chic style. Meanwhile, a white and chic metal structure added depth to the design as it supported an array of wire mesh lanterns creating a haven over this intimate setting. Finishing the display was a warm fireplace accented with rustic aspen logs as well as an animal pelt rug appropriately set to define the table space while adding that sense of natural beauty.
UPDATE: This event was also a design competition and DesignWorks won for BEST OVERALL DESIGN!
