Jun 5, 2019
1:00 pm—2:00 pm

Presented by LUXE Southeast and the Atlanta Design Festival

Sponsored by ADAC


Join Kate Abney, Homes Editor of LUXE Southeast magazine for a panel discussion with Harrison Design’s John Albanese, Principal Architect; Robert Tretsch, Director, Modern Studio; and Karen Ferguson, Director Interior Design as they discuss how modern and traditional styles do, and do not, relate. The designers share ideas and insights on how to meld the two visions and achieve a cohesive design.


Attendees will learn:

  • How to have it all—a modern home that is warm and comfortable
  • How modern design is informed by classical proportions and traditional concepts
  • What’s transitional architecture and why it is the top trending style
  • Making modern design livable via furnishings, detail, organic material
