DESIGN SATURDAY @ NYDC: Meet & Greet and Book Signing with Deborah Needleman

Interior design enthusiasts, friends and hopeful buyers trickled through the New York Design Center this past weekend to help celebrate the new Design Saturday @ NYDC. Throughout the year, the NYDC hosts special events where people within the furniture and design industry have the opportunity to come together and peruse the showrooms, enjoy a beverage and take part in the scheduled event for that day. Last Saturday brought in design expert Deborah Needleman for a book signing featuring her latest project, The Perfectly Imperfect Home, a book that embraces imperfect and lived-in homes.

Aiming for beauty that is tempered by reality,Needleman says is the basis for her new book. To explain, she says decorating should most definitely account for all the messy, accidental and incidental events that shape our everyday lives. The Perfectly Imperfect Home delves into lighting, comfy-cozy areas, quirky elements, bedroom d├ęcor, smells & scents and much more. Needleman’s detailed and neatly organized chapters have tons of useful tidbits, how-to’s and colorful illustrations for every type of decorator.

At the book-signing, Needleman was not only gracious but eager to meet her readers and hear their perspective on the book, asking questions and noting the feedback. The lovely 10th floor 1st Dibs space and cool, laid-back Saturday morning appeal provided an enjoyable time for all those who visited the NYDC. It’s likely that many of the guests hurried home to reorganize and redecorate their nests with some renewed optimism and fresh ideas!

Any house or room remembered with pleasure has the look of being loved by those who live in it.
