THOMASVILLE — Staff report

THOMASVILLE — The 25th anniversary Thomasville Antiques Show opens Feb. 21 and will run through Feb. 2 at the Thomasville Exchange Club Fairgrounds.

As always, the show brings to our area some of the finest antiques dealers in the trade.  And, in celebration of its 25th anniversary, this year’s show presents some of the best of the best in guest speakers. 

With a lineup usually reserved for places like design meccas New York or LA, the world of interiors and antiques comes to Thomasville through renowned masters in their fields: Miles Redd, Hutton Wilkinson, Curt DiCamillo, Lark Mason and special guest Lisa Newsom.

Lisa Newsom

Kicking off the celebration for the 25th Anniversary of the Thomasville Antiques Show, founder of Veranda magazine, Lisa Newsom, will be signing her new book during a champagne reception sponsored by Liam’s and The Thomasville Center for the Arts in downtown Thomasville (Center for the Arts gallery space on Broad Street). In 1987, Lisa set out to show the world that fine interior design existed even in the South! Soon after its launch, California became the state with the third-largest circulation even though the magazine had never featured a West Coast house.

In 2002, The Hearst Corporation purchased Veranda and it joined the chain’s other popular titles, such as Town & Country, Harper’s Bazaar and House Beautiful.

Although under a new editor, Newsom’s vision continues to inspire the magazine’s editorial direction. In 2012, The Magazine Association of the Southeast honored her with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Author of the exquisite book, The Houses of Veranda, Newsom has now authored a second stunning book, The Art of Outdoor Living. Tickets are limited for this special event.

Miles Redd

Known for his incredible use of color and whimsy, the outgoing Georgia native and international style maker, Miles Redd, will share his “Inspirations and Influence of Fashion in Interior Design,”  during the Thomas-ville Antiques Show.  Creative director of Oscar de la Renta Home since 2003 and one of Architectural Digest’s   “AD 100” in 2012, 2013 and 2014,  Redd will bring his Big Book of Chic  to life, and discuss how interior and fashion design are intertwined.

“captivated by chic from an early age, Redd has assembled a personal medley of images — a white-gloved hand poised to pluck a caviar toast, a 1940s princess in a froth of tulle and a Roman bust wearing a coolie hat — of people, artists and places that inspire him. To those rich pickings, the decorator adds shots of his “party-ready “interiors and quotes of life less ordinary.”  Vogue

Drawing on inspirations ranging from fashion photographer Richard Avedon to illustrator, Rene Gruau, Miles Redd crafts interiors for a wide array of venues.  His trademark approach to design brings life to rooms by infusing boldness, fantasy and sophistication.

Redd began his interior design career after graduating from NYU, honing his skills with antiques dealer John Rosselli and interior designer Bunny Williams.  In 1998 he opened his own design firm in New York, but he still has his roots in Georgia.
