During the Fall Round Top Antiques Fair, designers Michelle Nussbaumer, Barry Darr Dixon, Mary Douglas Drysdale and Kevin Isbell will team up with Ann Maine, editor in chief of Traditional Home, and Amy Elbert, the magazine’s senior architectural editor, for four design-focused days. The “Designer Dream Spree” will host the group in Round Top, Texas, over September 25 to 28, at the invitation of Houston-based designer Julie Dodson and Dallas-based designer Ike Isenhour.
“It has been a dream of mine, ever since my family purchased a home in the Brazos Valley, to brand Round Top as a destination for designers from all over the country, not just from Texas,” says Dodson, “to discover fine European antiques, architectural fragments, collectibles, art and bric-a-brac, all things we designers love to find for our clients.”
The designers will also serve as panelists, discussing the topic of “Exceptional Discoveries,” on September 26 at The Compound. The panel is open to the public. Tickets are $25 and will benefit local animal shelters.
Round Top is home to spring and fall markets, hosting thousands of dealers from the U.S. and abroad across venues that cover over 25 miles.
