After coordinating with the NY showroom for the beautiful light fixtures used in this bedroom design solution, the Artemide showroom contacted Vicci Franz Interior Design, LLC for inclusion of the install shots in their 2015 International Design lighting catalogue.  They loved the design solution, and I was happy to fufill the request.   What a graceful solution to a contemporary bedside lighting need.  The fixtures are LED, dimmable, height adjustable and rotate on the chrome supports.  I am honored that an Iconic Italian Lighting Design Manufacturer has published my work.

Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens- Summer Show   


Selected by Phipps Conservatory to showcase my interpretation of Sustainable Design for their summer show; a living wall, waterfall, repurposed street signs for furnishings, high recycled content carpet tiles, and wood combine to showcase a vignette of a Green Interior within the Palm Court of Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 


It was an honor and privilege to see my vision come to life with the assistance of the skilled hands of Phipps' staff and volunteers as well as the donations from my trade sources.  Special thanks to Joe Smarto from WTM Exotic Wood Flooring, Amy Quinlan from Interface Carpet, and Borris Bally for the wonderful 'furniture art'  that highlighted the design.  You are all wonderful people and great talents at what you do!
