Crowd at February's CULTURE & COCKTAILS at The Colony
(Palm Beach, FL – February 11, 2014) The popular series CULTURE & COCKTAILS, hosted by the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, recently attracted nearly a hundred design fans to The Colony Hotel, Palm Beach for the third "Conversation"
The topic was DISHING DESIGN: A Conversation Between Steven Stolman and Joseph Pubillones. Mr. Stolman is president of Scalamandré, America’s leading purveyor of exquisite decorative fabrics, wall coverings, trims and furnishings. Mr. Pubillones is an award-winning Cuban American interior designer who has been featured on HGTV’s Designer Challenge and on the Bob Villa show.
The two designers and longtime friends shared many Palm Beach memories as they commented about everyone from the Duke & Duchess of Windsor to the late Dame Celia Lipton Farris, from Marjorie Merriweather Post to assorted Trumps, as they shared amusing anecdotes, style tips and assorted design disasters.
The next CULTURE & COCKTAILS will be held at The Colony Hotel Pavilion on Monday, February 3. The topic will be I LIKE AMERICA: Noël Coward in the U.S.A. The official kickoff to The Noël Coward Festival Palm Beach 2014, the conversation will be between Barry Day, author of The Letters of Noël Coward, and William Hayes, Producing Artistic Director of Palm Beach Dramaworks.
