"The Interior's New Clothes"

Check out Jason Ball's latest post at Insight Into Design:
I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with Anna Solcaniova King, curator of Anka Gallery, on an original and unique art installation that might be a first in the Portland area. "The Interior's New Clothes" mixes the two worlds of fashion and interior design. The concept is simple, design the space as if it were a sophisticated loft and use fashion as wearable art to decorate the space. The resulting design is one in which couture and clothing accessories are seamlessly integrated into three room settings - a living room, dining room and bedroom. As a designer, my goal was to create three well-designed room settings in which the wearable art is used in such a way that it causes the viewer to pause and take note of each distinct piece as part of the cohesive whole.
This was part of First Thursday and we were pleased to be able to participate by providing some furniture for the event:
