Save the date: On the weekend of October 11 and 12, on a farm field in High Falls, New York, interior designer Brad Ford is hosting an arts and crafts fair with “a modern, elevated approach.” We’ll be there–Brook Farm General Store will be selling our book–and so will a slew of our favorite designers, woodworkers, and artists, all selling their wares out of tents.
Ford got the idea for the fair from the craft shows in his hometown of Russellville, Arkansas. “As a kid I loved that experience of being surrounded by so many creative people. It was very social. As an adult, I longed for that experience, and wanted to create a similar feeling but in a new, carefully curated context.” Ford is a member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory and we’re longtime fans of his organic approach to interiors. Have a look at his own place in The Designer Is In: Brad Ford at Home in NYC.
