DOAD Vendor Spotlight: John Richard, Cristina Dos Santos, PTMD Collection, Palecek

Hello Fabulistas! There are so many beautiful products going into my room vignette for Housing Works’ charitable event, Design on a Dime 2014. No matter the scale, each item from my generous vendors is helping me realize my vision. These product resources are some of my favorites for everyday design projects, too. Here’s why I treasure today’s highlighted vendors.

John Richard

Influenced by exotic cities and architecture, their designs capture classic home looks through a high fashion lens. Their showroom at the New York Design Center seems to have it all, with glam furniture, accessories, botanicals, and most recently, upholstery. Offerings like these make my job easier and even more fun!

Cristina Dos Santos

This downtown store has a decidedly cool, eclectic aesthetic that can be difficult to achieve for many. The Portugese designer cut her teeth at ABC Carpet & Home and is heavily influenced by architecture, which shows in her treasure trove of a store. Discovering nuanced points of view like Cristina’s has endless benefits for my design projects.

PTMD Collection

This showroom isn’t afraid of anything bold, bright, or dramatic! Eagerness to embrace the unusual and sensational is a gift for interior designers. Their offerings are on-trend, cool, and interesting. PTMD is your forward and eclectic thinkers!

Palecek

This company made a name for itself with natural-woven baskets and is forever expanding with natural-fiber furniture and accessories. Their products are always well-priced and full of interesting details. As an interior designer, I’m always looking for furnishings that can tell their own stories.
