"Stylishly Traditional: Celebrating Twenty-Five Years of Jayne Design Studio"
Friday, November 6, 10:00 am (show opens at 11:00 am)
A well-decorated room includes something old—an antique chair or a chest of drawers with family history—and perhaps the view of an ancient landscape or a venerable tree. So says this year’s Honorary Chair of the Delaware Antiques Show, interior designer Thomas Jayne. Don't miss this great keynote lecture to kick off this year's show! Book signing to follow lecture. Included with general admission. Jayne will autograph copies of his books American Decoration: A Sense of Place and The Finest Rooms in America: Fifty Influential Interiors from the Eighteenth Century to the Present following his lecture.
