on Innovation in the Modern Age:
Mixing Craft with Contemporary

Roger Thomas is one of the most inventive and evocative American interior designers in the world, best known for his work on Las Vegas’ most architecturally memorable hotels, including the Bellagio, Wynn and the new Wynn Palace Cotai. Thomas, named five times to the Architectural Digest AD100 and to Interior Design’s Hall of Fame in 2015, channels his deep knowledge of the history of craft into the creation of contemporary handmade wall coverings with the artisans at Maya Romanoff. What is the source of Thomas’ creativity? And how does he know what designers want? Join us as Michael Wollaeger, editor-in-chief of the new Los Angeles Times magazine DesignLA, engages in a Q&A with this master class designer.

Iconic. Based on what? According to who?

Thursday, March 23, 11:30 AM

Join moderator Madeline Stuart as she queries four design authorities – Suzanne Tucker, Adam Hunter, Delta Wright and Ryan White – about what defines the term iconic when applied to a legendary interior, quintessential piece of furniture or archetypal light fixture. Is there an argument to what should – and what shouldn’t – be labeled iconic within the realm of design? Hear them out and then you be the judge!

Vendor Spotlight: David Bonk, Surfaces

david-bonkAn artist from an early age and inspired by the world around him, David Bonk has created hand painted wall covering out of his studio in San Francisco since 1988. The initial drive for his work came from a trip to Europe during his senior year in high school in which he was inspired by the beauty and permanence of renaissance art and architecture. He later moved to Los Angeles in 1980 and enjoyed success as a faux finisher. Seeking the freedom to expand upon his creations he began applying his work to wall covering and Surfaces was born. Knowing he wanted to imbue his work with the qualities he saw in Europe he chose to work on canvas rather than a traditional paper. Working with this unique material he has created a product that transcends the notion of hand painted by creating durable, practical wall coverings that are instilled with modern sophisticated elegance. His wall coverings are all easily customized in both color and pattern, are class A fire rated, wipeable and suitable for commercial spaces as well as residential kitchens and bathrooms.
