ASID NY Metro Parisian farewell dinner
ASID NY Metro Parisian farewell dinner

During Paris Design Week, the ASID NY Metro Chapter’s 2nd Annual Paris Experience was a unique opportunity for a delegation of high-profile interior designers from the New York area to connect with one another and view firsthand many important long-lasting trends from the design festival that influence their local design businesses. 

Twenty-five attendees joined past ASID NY Metro presidents Kim Radovich, Bjorn Bjornsson and Robin Baron, president-elect Benjamin Huntington, and then Long Island liaison to the chapter Katharine McGowan and her predecessor, Jackie Higgins, ​​​​for four days of experiences in the City of Light. 

On Monday, the group’s final night in Paris, they gathered to reminisce over their time together while while enjoying traditional French fare. Guests were treated to aperitifs and a delicious three-course meal in the iconic Victor Room of the Hôtel du Louvre.
