Although the 27th annual Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville is over, the ideas and inspirations that were presented, particularly during the Design Panel sponsored by MILIEU, continue to flourish. This year, more than 150 fine antiques and horticultural dealers were on hand. Four magnificent gardens were featured and some of the most distinguished design, landscape, and architectural speakers in the world were in attendance.
Attendees traveled to Music City from around the country to walk the show floor and hear from this year's speakers. The Design Panel, moderated by Robert LeLeux, featured renowned designers, including Mary McDonald, Nathan Turner, and Jesse Carrier & Mara Miller. Leleux guided the conversation among these style-makers—and the audience learned about their sources for inspiration, where they travel for ideas, the influence of other designers, the eras that color their designs, and their takes on the global hot spots for style today.
The all-volunteer show has raised nearly $7 million over the years, with proceeds benefitting the Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art and the many charities supported by the Economic Club of Nashville (ECON).
Mark your calendars for the 2018 show, February 2-4.
