Students create stunning interiors with thrift store finds!
>>>> UPDATE on 5/21/11 <<<< The Rustic Tuscan room team won the overall contest by snagging the “Best Representation of Genre” award. But the Eclectic Modern room took the award for highest profits by raising the most money from the auction of furniture and accessories used in the design! Congratulations!
Four interior design colleges fielded teams of students who selected furniture and accessories from our local stores to create a room design based on a theme. This year’s themes were, Rustic Tuscan, Hollywood Regency, Eclectic Modern and Antique. The rooms are on display at our stores in Fountain Valley, Huntington Beach, Orange, and San Clemente until the winner is named on Saturday, May 21.
Each piece of furniture and item of decor part of a silent auction to raise funds to support The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center in Anaheim, California.
