The Rising Stars of Interior Design

The Avery Boardman’s white cushy chairs, sectionals and sofas were filled with design lovers, eager to see the next generation of industry tastemakers. Moderated by Jamie Drake, who always knows how to make the discussion lively and fun, the session featured rising interior design stars: Vanessa De Leon, Vanessa De Leon Associates; James Andrew, James Andrew Interior Design and Diane Burgio, Beautiful Modern World. We found out more than just their decorating philosophies (fyi – they all agree that opulence is in!). We learned that Vanessa would love for the word glamilistic, a style she describes as a combination of glamorous and minimalist, to be in the dictionary one day. The dapper James has looked the same since he was a child, and Diane has a passion for surfing (you should see how cool her board is). Thanks to the Avery Boardman, New York Spaces and the IFDA of NY for putting this all together.
