No, we’re not trying to make space by shouting fire – we’re announcing the theme of our craft-item-inspired room vignette at the American Craft Council show in San Francisco July 31st to August 2nd!
With more than 230 of the top contemporary jewelry, clothing, furniture and home décor artists from across the country, ACC is the largest juried craft show west of the Rockies. For the past few years, ACC has featured a series of interior design vignettes called Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft, created around and inspired by a craft item. This year’s theme is the 4 elements of Water, Air, Earth and Fire – Kimball’s theme!
Here’s a sneak peak at Kimball’s process:
Designer: Kimball Starr, Allied ASID
Design firm: Kimball Starr Interior Design
Inspirations: Victor DiNovi, Mark L. Hendrickson, and Clark Renfort
Design style: I draw inspiration from colors, textures, and forms found in nature, as well as from gritty urban landscapes. I combine these elements to create exciting urban spaces while maintaining a touchstone to nature, for custom-crafted interiors that fit each homeowner’s lifestyle and sensibility.
Vision: From the destruction that fire wreaks comes renewal and rebirth in nature. This room is a conceptual design of an outdoor “room” in a lava field that illustrates how that transformation can bring forth beauty. I chose these organically shaped pieces so they appear as if they’ve grown up out of the lava bed, like beacons of beauty that rise up after fire.
Come see Kimball’s designs for yourself – along with the 3 other designer vignettes and thousands of hand-crafted pieces, all under one roof!
