W hat: Champagne and b o o k s i g n i n g w i t h Patrick Frey, son of founder Pierre Frey, at Culp Associates. Takeaway: Flutes of bubbly fueled those awaiting an introduction to Patrick Frey, scion of the iconic French fabric house Pierre Frey, and a signed book. What: Illustrated talk and book signing with architect Michael Imber at Elegant Additions. Takeaway: Every time Michael Imber signed a copy of his latest book, he drafted a little sketch alongside the inscription, reflective of his passion for drawing. His new book, The Art of the Architect (Triglyph Books), was published just as AI threatens to fully digitize renderings and architecture schools have begun to stop teaching drawing. "What do these images mean to us personally if we're able to just push a button?" he said. "As I sit there and paint, I feel the sunlight on my back. I can smell the juniper and sage. I can feel the cold coming in from the mountains. That's why I draw." What: Panel discussion at James showroom about building a family brand, moderated by Veranda editor in chief Steele Marcoux, with Sister Parish mother-daughter team Susan Crater and Eliza Harris; husband and wife Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller of Carrier and Company Interiors; life partners Clay McLaurin and Todd Piercy of McLaurin & Piercy; and James showroom's owners, husband and wife Hunter and Meredith Ellis. Takeaway: The panel discussion felt much like a family dinner, with industry leaders discussing balancing life and work.
