If you're not yet familiar with Legends, it is one of the most anticipated design events in the country. It's a 3-day celebration of design in May that brings together the top editors of the nation’s most prized shelter magazines - Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House Beautiful and Veranda to name just a few - with VIPs and tastemakers from the worlds of interior design, architecture, decor, art and fashion for keynote panel discussions, cocktail parties, exhibitions, book signings, personal appearances and receptions. There are 40 windows in the LCDQ that will be transformed by some of the most talented designers on the planet (their words, not ours ... we're still in complete shock over having been invited!) based on the themes of various novels. Legends is the largest design event of its kind on the West Coast, and is a prominent fixture on the national design event calendar.
This year's Legends theme is Novel Interiors, Storytelling by Design. All designers were asked to choose any novel and to then design a showroom window around that theme. Our window, at Sydney Harbour Paints (which we adore, by the way) is going to be a super luxe tribute to Ian Fleming's Goldfinger. Yes, that's right... as in 'Bond, James Bond'. Think lavish & sexy meets glam & sophisticated. As designers, the opportunity to be wildly imaginative without restraint has been a wonderfully creative and freeing experience for us and we're beyond excited about sharing our window with you. Stayed tuned for behind the scenes posts of the installation!
Oh, and another cool little thing that we're kind of thrilled about... our window will be next to those designed by some of our most admired peers in the industry like Diane von Furstenberg, House of Honey, Kerry Joyce, Mark D. Sikes, Martyn Lawrence Bullard Design & Timothy Corrigan to name just a few. AND, several of our blogger/designer friends will be there as Legends Ambassadors which will be so fun. So, to put it politely, we're frickin' stoked about this!!! Now on to the most important question... what in the world are we going to wear?!
