The Designer Series

Judy Frankel Antiques Showroom

For the vignette and accessorizing series, several talented local designers have created displays in our gallery to demonstrate the innovative ways design professionals use antique furniture and accessories.

Accessorizing: How the pros do it

This 2013 series focused on accessorizing. Each month, the designated designer selected 1-3 areas of our gallery to accessorize using antiques from our inventory. Photographs of each display along with the designer’s accessorizing tips are available.

Designing With Antiques - Designer Vignettes

For this series, each designer started with a blank room. They were given carte blanche to paint, upholster, hang lighting, put down flooring or carpet.  We gave them full reign to choose any of the antiques from our inventory and bring in supplemental pieces as they saw fit. Some designers worked individually, others collaborated with friends or colleagues. It was always a delight to see how the space was utterly transformed. This series was a lot of fun, and the response from our community and clients was tremendous.
