Crossville sponsors Southern Style Now Showhouse

Home Press Release Crossville sponsors Southern Style Now Showhouse

Crossville, Tenn.— Crossville will be the exclusive tile sponsor for the first-ever Southern Style Now Showhouse, presented by Traditional Home Magazine. The 15-room house, a Queen Anne Victorian built in 1896 and located on St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans’ Uptown District, has received an extensive renovation led by some of the nation’s top interior designers.

The remodeled home will debut during a gala event on May 18 benefiting New Orleans’ Preservation Resource Center. It will then be open for public tours May 19-June 12. The showhouse is occurring in tandem with the first Southern Style Now Design Festival that runs May 19-22 as a celebration of the unique and distinct aesthetic and culture of our nation’s southern states.

In addition to providing tile for the showhouse, Crossville is supporting the festival by leading two unique events.

“The Fifth Wall” panel discussion 
Lindsey Waldrep, VP of marketing for Crossville, will moderate a panel discussion on “The Fifth Wall” featuring several notable Southern designers sharing insights on “the secret to stylish slab, mosaic how-to’s, and more.” This event takes place on  May 21 from 9 to 10:15 a.m. at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans.

CEU presentation: Thin Tile 
Crossville’s Doug Ingham will lead a Lunch & Lecture CEU event focusing on the burgeoning porcelain tile panel (aka thin tile) category. The event takes place on May 20 from noon to 2 p.m. at Stafford Tile & Stone, 5234 Magazine St., in New Orleans.

“It’s great to see our tile collections so beautifully used by a line-up of phenomenal interior designers,” Waldrep said. “Even more importantly, it’s an honor to be part of an event that will make great strides in the ongoing renaissance of New Orleans’ design community. The festival is bringing in the best of the best, and we’re thrilled to be in the mix.”
