Welcome to TGP Tidbits where we round up the latest happenings and our musings of the design industry each week. This week we take a look at the 2023 Winter Show, Mary McDonald for Paterson Flynn Martin, and Paris Déco Off. Written by Natalie Aldridge
The Winter Show 2023
January 20th marks the start of the annual Winter Show. In its 69th year, the Winter Show celebrates and showcases première art, antiques, and design exhibited by many of the world’s top experts in the fine and decorative arts. Starting in the 1950s as a benefit for East Side House Settlement, the show has since become the leading antiquities and decorative arts show in the United States.
Taking place in the historic Park Avenue Armory, the show will run from January 20th to January 29th. Throughout the show, the Armory will host lectures and cocktail parties featuring industry leaders such as Suzanne Tucker, interior designer; Emily Adams Bode Aujla, founder of Bode; Michael Diaz-Griffith, author of The New Antiquarians: At Home with Young Collectors; and Mitch Owens, World of Interiors American Editor.
Whether you are in the market for antiquities, an industry patron, or simply seeking inspiration, The Winter Show is not to be missed. Tickets are available HERE.
Mary McDonald for Paterson Flynn Martin
Just off the heels of her latest collection launch with Schumacher, interior designer Mary McDonald has launched her latest collaboration with carpet giant Paterson Flynn Martin. In 2013, Paterson Flynn Martin, an F. Schumacher & Co. company, unveiled their first collection with the renowned designer. Much like her collection with Schumacher, the collaboration has become a mainstay offering superbly reimagined classics in natural materials.
The new collection features three theatrical geometric abaca rugs in multiple sizes and hues designed in a similar vein to her line with Schumacher. Take a look!
Paris Déco Off 2023
Paris Déco Off, otherwise known as “fashion week for the interiors industry”, launched its five-day design spectacular this week. Each January interior designers, decorative arts media, industry craftsmen, vendors, and design enthusiasts come together in Paris for an event that draws more than 40,000 visitors from across the globe.
Approximately 120 showrooms open their doors to showcase their latest collections of fabrics, wallpapers, trimmings, wall coverings, and more. Since the inception of Déco Off, giant lanterns have adorned the main promenades of both the left and right banks for the duration of the showcase. Lighting the way for visitors, each lantern uniquely features a print from a participating fabric house. This year’s Déco Off takes place January 18th to the 22nd.
