Modern vs. Traditional Panel Discussion

Jun 5, 2019
1:00 pm—2:00 pm

Presented by LUXE Interiors + Design and the Atlanta Design Festival

Sponsored by ADAC

Moderated by Kate Abney, Homes Editor of the Southeast edition of LUXE Interiors + Design; Harrison Design’s John Albanese, Principal Architect; Robert Tretsch, Director, Modern Studio; and Karen Ferguson, Director Interior Design will discuss how modern and traditional styles do—and don’t—relate. The designers will share ideas and insights on how to meld the two visions and achieve a cohesive design.

  • How modern design is informed by classical proportions and traditional concepts
  • What modern and traditional architecture have in common—and what they don’t
  • How to ensure that a modern home is timeless—not a time capsule of a particular decade
  • Why modern and traditional architecture require equal degrees of complexity and attention to detail
