On October 24th and 25th, the Friends of Longue Vue Steering Committee will present the Design Symposium. Longue Vue is a rare treasure: a home created to complement existing gardens, with the interior design and gardens both created by renowned early twentieth century landscape architect Ellen Biddle Shipman. For 28 years, we have celebrated this unique legacy through a symposium style exploration into contemporary interior landscape and floral design. This year we are pleased to welcome award-winning designer and author, Charlotte Moss, as the keynote speaker for Symposium. With a career spanning almost 35 years in the business of design, Charlotte has drawn upon her experience in decorating homes to design collections ranging from furniture and upholstery to jewelry. She has authored ten books, the most recent of which Charlotte Moss Entertains will be featured and available for purchase and signing. Widely recognized for her contributions to the design world, Charlotte has received numerous honors including the New York School of Interior Design’s Centennial Medal, Housing Works’ Groundbreaker’s Award, The Royal Oak Foundation’s Timeless Design award, and is named as one of the Elle Décor Grand Master List of Top Designers. Joining Charlotte Moss will be Margot Shaw, the founder and editor-in-chief of Flower Magazine. Since beginning the magazine in 2009, Margot has shepherded its growth to a bimonthly publication available in all 50 states and 17 countries. Her book, Living Floral: Entertaining and Decorating with Flowers was released in March 2019 and will be available for purchase and signing at Symposium. Join us at Longue Vue for a cocktail reception to welcome Charlotte Moss & Margot Shaw as our 2019 featured speakers. Ticket price includes full bar and hors d'oeuerves provided by Ralph Brennan's Catering and Events. Be sure to also purchase a ticket for the Design Symposium Lunch and Lecture, which will be the following day at The Audubon Tea Room.
