What’s New, What’s Next in New York Takes On a Texas Feel

The New Traditionalists Team Up with PaperCity to Make an Impact

BY // 08.24.17

PaperCity has teamed with The New Traditionalists showroom to celebrate Texas Tradition and Design at New York Design Center’s marquee fall event, What’s New, What’s Next, Thursday, September 14. More than 7,500 top designers, architects, editors, and industry professionals attend an afternoon of panels, presentations, book signings and parties in more than 80 showrooms in partnership with more than two dozen magazines — Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Veranda, Traditional Home — and now PaperCity.

Perhaps no other architectural firm in Texas exhibits more poetry and tenets of classical architecture than that of Houston-based Curtis & Windham Architects. Bill Curtis and Russell Windham will join PaperCity editor in chief Holly Moore for a conversation and presentation from Curtis & Windham’s book, A Vision of Place: The Work of Curtis & Windham Architects, followed by a book signing.

Philip Erdoes and Brady Wilcox, The New Traditionalists founders, host, serving Texas barbecue and spirits (Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Dulce Vida tequila), with one very lucky guest walking away with a pair of Lucchese boots. The New Traditionalists, bench-made classical furniture with modern detail, debuts a collection of custom architectural built-in cabinets and closets, and their first rug collection, which is designed in New York and handmade in India and China by highly skilled weavers (sans child laborers). Rugs are customizable in color, material and size, with hand-knotted and hand-tufted construction options of silk, New Zealand wool, wool/silk blends, bamboo silk, and mohair wool and shag.

Join us for What’s New What’s Next, September 14, full afternoon of events from 1 to 9 pm, The New Traditionalists/PaperCity event, 8 pm. New York Design Center, 200 Lexington. Event is gratis but rsvp a must, at Nydc.com/event/whats-new-whats-next-2017.
