Dering Hall’s Wired & inspired Series Hits the Design Circuit This Fall

By lexy


Dering Hall is taking its popular Wired & Inspired Virtual Showhouse to destinations across the country this fall. An exciting showcase of digital design installations, the program launched for the first time at the New York Design Center (NYDC) and received rave reviews. The fall Wired & Inspired tour just kicked off at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC) with an opening day event on September 28th. The next stop will be the Boston Design Center (BDC), followed by Thomas Lavin (PDC) and High Point Market. Each location has its own unique theme and features a myriad of top talents. From favorite cities to movies, the selected designers will bring their visions to life through mood boards, room renderings and concept drawings utilizing furnishings from the respective design center, tradeshow or showroom. Meant to serve as a source of inspiration, the items featured in each vignette will also be available for purchase through Dering Hall.

Dering Hall Co-Founder Peter Sallick, remarks, “After the success of our first Wired and Inspired, we knew we had to run with the concept and make it a signature series. The Dering Hall community includes over 500 of the world’s top brands and over 15,000 of the finest interior design products. These virtual showhouses are a fun, interactive way for us to engage with our audience and highlight our designers and brands around key design moments. The program is also a prime example of our commitment to contextual commerce and emblematic of the richness of the Dering Hall experience.”
