Interior designer Steven Favreau, one of the top interior designers in the Boston and San Francisco areas, will be featured in three events during the Second Annual Boston Design Week, a 10-day citywide design festival, taking place March 19-29, 2014. Favreau will be the Master of Ceremonies during Design New England’s “Design Showdown”; host of “Refresh: Design Intervention” in partnership with Ink Block; and a panelist on “Collaboration: the New Edge in Home Design” at AD20/21: Art and Design of the 20th and 21st Centuries & The Boston Print Fair.
Steven Favreau’s dramatic residential interior design brings together the best of contemporary interior design with classic elements, courageously mixing current styles with fine antiques, vibrant colors, bold textures and whimsical, surprising or even irreverent elements. His unique high-end interior design style, for both residential and commercial clients, has garnered accolades and has ranked as the best interior design for its fresh approach, and has been featured in Design New England, California Home + Design, San Francisco Chronicle Stylemakers, Houzz.com and numerous others.
With Steven Favreau as the Master of Ceremonies, the final round of Design New England’s Design Showdown will take place March 20, 5:30pm-8:30pm, at the Boston Design Center. Design Showdown engages the next generation of interior designers and allows them to flex their creative muscles. During the event, finalists will have one last chance to defend their projects and convince a panel of judges that their design is the best - and they'll do it in front of a live audience. One graduate and one undergraduate student will take home top honors and will be published in a subsequent issue of Design New England. The program is free and open to the public. RSVP to DesignShowdown.EventBrite.com.
