If the history of wall decoration could be acknowledged and captured in a simple collection, designer Barry Dixon has achieved this in his first wallcoverings collection for Vervain. Hear the inspiration behind this extraordinary collection and see the innovative printing techniques used to create these remarkable designs including a large-scale, digitally printed, pastoral mural that spans more than 13 feet wide and nine feet tall. Laser printing and digital imaging are mixed with more traditional methods of hand printing, flocking and beading to craft Barry’s brave and romantic wallcoverings that bend time to contour to the walls of modern rooms.
A Toast to Ann Lambeth. Please join the Washington Design Center for a special champagne toast to honor and celebrate the life of our dear friend, Ann Lambeth. As a founding member of the WDC and an integral member of the D.C. design community, Ann was an ambassador of great design. “The design industry was Ann’s lifelong passion, and she lovingly championed so many along their path,” the company said. “Ann was a design dynamo, and her steady, consistent and heartfelt efforts to bring the best of the world to Washington was matched only by her constant efforts to share the best Washington had to offer with the rest of the world.” Guests are welcome to share their favorite memory or story of Ann.
