My wonderful friend, Janice, who’s the PR Director at Scalamandré told me about a great series of lectures in New York hosted by the Decorators Club. I am already planning to go to at least one of them!
Blogger and author, Emily Evans Eerdmans helped select this year’s list of lectures, with the theme Modern Visionaries: Women of Design. The first lecture was last week, but there’s still time to take in the next four.

October 17 - Beatrix Farrand presented by Judith B. Tankard
November 7 - Maria Pergay presented by Suzanne Demisch
March 6 - Suzanne Belperron presented by Nico Landrigan
March 20 - Ruby Ross Wood presented by Mitchell Owens
The Decorators Club Education Fund, Inc. was established in 1960 to support interior design education. The fund sponsors an annual portfolio competition for students in six colleges in the New York metropolitan area that offer BFA programs in interior design. The grants that are awarded are made possible by proceeds from these lectures and the generous support of corporate sponsors, members, friends, and colleagues.
