In honor of the 5th Annual NYDC Masquerade Ball, Design-Calendar has teamed up with our friends at New York Spaces to bring you the first ever UNVEILED contest.  For the next 7 days, we’ll be posting a sketch by the famed artist George Goursat (aka SEM). His wonderfully imaginative portrayals of Paris at the turn of the 20th century inspired the theme of this year’s Masquerade Ball: Le Vrai et Le Faux Chic and caught our editor’s eye as well. For example, the aristocratic woman modeling a shortened hoop dress reminded us of a Victorian fringed lampshade.  After scouring the pages of New York Spaces magazine, the editorial team pulled a selection of fabulous furniture, lighting and accessories from the NYDC that mirror the elements in the sketch.  Each day they will UNVEIL a new series of products on their website, one of which they’ve dubbed the best match (sketch & product).  See if you have the same SEM style and can guess which one it is.  Everyday is a new vote, so check back daily. Whoever has the MOST correct matches by Wednesday, October 27 WINS! If we end up with a tie, we’ll do a random drawing of those who had the most matches. The winner will be announced on the 27th and awarded a $100 gift certificate to Padre Figlio!

Now..let the UNVEILED: SEM Style Comes Home at the NYDC Masquerade Ball contest begin. Here’s the first sketch. After you’ve studied it, click on www.newyorkspacesmag.com/nydc to view the products and vote for which one you think best matches this gentleman. And finally – don’t forget to get your tickets to the ball ($125 in advance, $150 at door – 212.594.7320), proceeds benefit the Alpha Workshops.
