If you’re like us, you’re probably familiar with Currey’s jaw-dropping lighting fixtures. Check out some of our favorite table lamps from their Winterthur Collection.

And we certainly have an affinity for  Currey’s antiqued chandelier’s. The corkscrew cables and Spanish gilt finishes give the Montmorenci a distinctly European feel — perfect for a dinning nook in a shabby-chic country kitchen or an old rustic study.

The talent of their designers transcends mere light fixtures — Their lamps and chandeliers, though beautiful on their own, become something even more striking when paired with Currey and Co’s accent furniture.

Design Camp Las Vegas “… a Hit!”

Hi Lori & Kelli!
Your event was outstanding and I’m in awe of you both as I can only imagine the logistics that went in to orchestrating an event of this magnitude.  The speakers were fabulous and I was able to take away invaluable nuggets from each and every one of them!  Your energy was contageous and I could feel how everyone in the room was instantly infused by that electricity.

Design Camp at LV market

August 3, 2014   Barefoot Musings

Its been such a fun and exciting week in the world of Interior Design on the west coast. This week I got to go to my first Design Camp at Las Vegas Summer Market. I’d heard a lot of good things about Design Camp and was excited to take part in this special event. If you are at all considering attending a future one, I encourage you to do so. You will not be disappointed.

Lori and Kelli getting the day started.

Lori and Kelli getting the day started.

Kelli Ellis and Lori Dennis have put together something that the design community has needed for years! a two day event packed with educational and inspirational speakers all designed to take your practice to the next level. Nice work ladies! As someone who’s been practicing design for nearly, um, 20 years. (Yes, I said 20) I wasn’t sure what design camp could teach me. But to my surprise I was both educated and inspired. From Bill Indursky’s fun presentation on current design trends, to Susanne Salk’s industry insights into how to get work published, to the brilliant Adam Japko’s talk on social media and marketing.

Design camp is also an opportunity to meet and connect with hundreds of designers from all around the country as well as discover great new market introductions from some of our favorite brands like Orient Express, Noir, Made Goods, Interlude Home, Lexington, Global Views, Lamps Plus, and others… Scavenger hunts, games, giveaways, parties, and educational workshops. Priceless.

Rona and I at Orient Express. Great furniture. Great people.

I sincerely feel blessed to have been included and look forward to taking part in future Design Camps. You’re never too old to learn a new thing or two.

Thanks ladies!


Good times in Las Vegas

…[T]hank you Kelli and Lori for the opportunity to participate in this. You managed to create something that was epic but organized, professional but fun, and to generate a real sense of group camaraderie, which is so often the special sauce missing from a lot of these events. Well done! I miss Design Camp already. :, (
Our “a-ha” moment! Toto faucets for everyone!!
We had chills  – So much fun!

Hello Kelli and Lori… I just wanted to take a moment while everything was fresh in my mind to tell you how inspired I was by this week. The speaker lineup was fantastic and I took copious notes the entire time. Some of my favorites were:

  • Bill Indursky, I won the web site development and can’t wait to get my site up and running.
  • Aaron Danzig on positioning your brand and point of differentiation
  • Roger Thomas’s incredible images and design process
  • Kimberley Seldon’s dynamic “Business of Design” presentation where I probably learned the most and YES bought her books
  • Katy Garrett’s Tech panel. I’m following up with Ross Barlett to learn more about his product and think I found my drawing solution.
  • Chris Kennedy’s passionate furniture presentation.
  • Phil Pallen’s humorous and hilariously funny approach to Twitter, and YES bought his book too.
The other amazing thing about this week were the amazing people in attendance and the sharing and networking that took place. This is a career change for me and I met some amazing people who gave me confidence in my abilities and have volunteered to be there offering their assistance if I have any questions or doubts. Our little round table group is even planning a weekly call to inspire each other.
Thank You again for a fantastic week. I look forward to the next Design Camp.
