SEPTEMBER | PAGE 74 | 2014 EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN A t the new Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show, booths give way to room vignettes, when 100 discerning dealers from across the U.S. — including Houston notables Carl Moore Antiques, Antiques of River Oaks, David Lackey Antiques and Art, Majolica LLC, mrspk&oz, Lynn Goode Vintage, Past Era Fine Antique Jewelry, Arader Galleries, Lewis & Maese, The Gray Door and William Reaves Fine Art — set up their handsome wares alongside exhibitors from Canada, Latin America and Europe. A Chippendale breakfront encounters a Vladimir Kagan settee. Victorian oyster plates cozy up to rooster-figure majolica. A British 18th- century epergne rests atop a Queen Anne Revival dining table beneath an imposing Lucite ribbon chandelier, redolent of the Deco period (but actually dating from the 1970s).

HOORAH HEPPLEWHITE, HELLO ROBSJOHN-GIBBINGS At mrspk&oz At Howard Price Fine Art At Butler & Butler Gallery At mrspk&oz At Past Era Fine Antique Jewelry At Hayden & Fandetta DECORATING DIALOGUE A Day of Heady Design at Houston Design Center's Spring Market C elebrated designers once again heeded the call from The Houston Design Center's Sheri and Grant Roane and ace marketing pro Alton LaDay to take a trip to Houston for Houston Design Center's Spring Market. This year's roundup of design talent: Alexa Hampton, in from New York; Jay Jeffers from L.A.; and San Antonio's architect eminence Michael G. Imber. But before design day commenced, architect Lauren Rottet summoned the designers and local design peerage to cocktails and conversation in her River Oaks home. The only issue: she was in Palm Springs hosting another party at the former residence of old blue eyes. Unfazed, she simply excused herself from her desert shindig and flew back to Houston for three hours then zipped right back to Palm Springs that night. Quaffing and conversing: Christina Girard, Anita Smith, Ken Kehoe, Albert Wilson, Sarah Eilers, Courtnay Tartt Elias, Rusty Arena, Jonathon Glus, Haley Garcia, and Mike Mahlstedt. Bright and early the next morning, designers et al gathered at Alkusari Stone showroom for a design dialogue moderated by Heritage Texas Properties president and CEO Robin Mueck. Then it was on to the business of book buying and signing, with Bunch & Shoemaker, Teri Pugh Studio and Thorntree Slate & Marble hosting individual meet-and-greets for each designer. Later that evening, the design trio returned to the stage to host the PaperCity Design Awards at The Houston Design Center (look for complete coverage in our October issue). To market, to market: Carmen Bechter, Kyle Palmer, Catheryn Wilson, Ruth Davis, Carol Hunton, Anne Breux, Jaclyn Reed, Lindsey Herod, Karen Pugh, Bill Stubbs, Julie Rich, Vicki Rusca, and Stefannie Palazzo.
