The 2019 Hartford Show will feature a millennials perspective to the world of antiques and arts. Kate Avery, artist, furniture designer, painter, blogger and influencer, is on tap to share her knowledge and design savvy with a fresh twist. She will show how to incorporate that unique and special antique object into a 21st century setting and how to curate a space as a reflection of your individuality and style. Although known for her re-furbished painted furniture, Kate has a deep understanding and respect for the exceptional and unique pieces found at the Connecticut Spring Show.
