Each year 160 international dealers and exhibitors flock to the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show to show off their antique furniture, lighting, art, mirrors, accessories and more—but that's just one part of the festivities. Also on the agenda: the annual Designer Showcase, room vignettes created by interior designers incorporating treasures found on the show floor.

AD100 interior designer Campion Platt will curate this year’s Designer Showcase, which will focus on his room setting, with surrounding work created by interior designers Suzanne Kasler, Gil Walsh, Lars Bolander, Jenny Garrigues and Bill and Phyllis Taylor.

The designers will scour the show to source one-of-a-kind pieces chosen from exhibitors for vignettes that reflect their unique and individual aesthetic—from traditional to minimalist.

The Palm Beach Jewelry, Art and Antique Show will also host a private Opening Night Preview Party honoring the American Red Cross at the Palm Beach County Convention Center on Friday, Feb. 13. During the festivities, Palm Beach Show Group CEO Scott Diament will unveil the 2015 Designer Showcase and guests will get a sneak-peak at the over a billion dollars worth of offerings available to the public the next day.

Platt, the Taylors, Patricia Faber, Michael Cohen, Carole Thibaut-Pomeranz and Liza Laserow will be among those speaking on topics ranging from what's new in Palm Beach design to the resurgence of wallpaper in interiors.
