NEWH Dallas Life of Design Event

Tickets are on sale now and you must buy one!  You do not want to miss this event!  Throw on your favorite cocktail attire and bring your friends!  Included in your ticket purchase is valet parking, an open bar, a scrumptious dinner, groovy dancing, and a night filled with tons of great networking opportunities!

Combining the various elements within the hospitality industry, “Life of Design” will showcase the creative talents of interior designers, architects, interior design students, culinary students, industry members, and the Dallas design community in conjunction with local and national manufacturers.

During the evening, guests will have the opportunity to bid on silent auction items and view chair team competitions.  Interior design firms and architecture firms were randomly paired with Chair Sponsors to create designs comprising of at least 50% of manufacturer provided materials.  Other categories for the chair competition include interior design students and individuals.  Judging will occur during “Life of Design” with awards being presented for Best Design, Director’s Choice, and People’s Choice.

Proceeds from “Life of Design” will go to the Dallas NEWH scholarship fund which recently distributed $20,000 to students with a focus towards the hospitality industry.,

The Chair!

At RSVP Design Services, we decided to tackle two chairs for “Life of Design!”  After collaborating and finalizing concepts, then began the tedious, finger pricking, back aching, and constant supply trips!  All of which ultimately paid off fantastically and was worth every pain!  We are happy to introduce the birth and “life of RSVP Design Services chair designs.”  Meet “Spike the Bright” and “Swingin’ Sweet Thing!”

In the beginning: “Spike the Bright” and “Swingin’ Sweet Thing”
