Southern Style Now Designer Sneak Peek

The second annual Southern Style Now Festival and Showhouse is just a few short weeks away, and we’re thrilled to be part of this exciting event celebrating Southern design. The design event will take place November 9-12 in the quintessential southern city of historic Savannah. We can’t wait to see what the twenty-three A-list designers have imagined and created for the 1854 Greek Revival home in the midst of Savannah’s Landmark Historic District. Crossville tile will be featured throughout, and we’re looking forward to seeing the final reveals in November. Meanwhile, here’s a sneak peek of some of what’s in store at the Traditional Home designer showhouse in Savannah.

A nationally-acclaimed interior designer, Lisa Mende of Lisa Mende Design in Charlotte, NC is known for creating traditional interiors with a modern vibe for clients throughout the Southeast and beyond. For the showhouse, Lisa leverages our Laminam I Naturali in Calacatta d’ Oro for a stunning presentation in the kitchen.
