The Future of Surfaces and Design Presented in the Style Hub at The DISH DALLAS, Nov. 18, 2019: The International Surface Event (TISE): SURFACES | StonExpo/Marmomac | TileExpo is debuting a dramatic new design show feature at the upcoming January event, The Style Hub at The DISH, and sought out a design visionary to develop this wildly imaginative space. TISE 2020 is proud to announce celebrity designer and television host Jennifer Farrell as the face of this exciting new event feature. Jennifer is a familiar face to audiences who have enjoyed her television shows and designs for over a decade. The industry has the chance to now experience surface materials through the wonder and dreamy stylings of Jennifer’s designs.
Attendees at TISE 2020 will be able to dive into four visionary design worlds, or style pods, at The Style Hub at The DISH. The four fully produced spaces are being artfully developed by Jennifer; each style pod exemplifying one of her jaw-dropping design themes. Working in conjunction with the designers at Anderson Tuftex, the exclusive surface material sponsor, the brand manager of Lamps Plus, the exclusive lighting sponsor, as well as a full line-up of other incredible furniture and accessories brands, the Style Hub at The DISH will inspire the industry to reimagine the future of surfaces and design. Be on the watch for updates from Floor Trends Magazine, the Style Hub official publication sponsor, and TISE as we provide sneak previews into the design worlds before the event. Teasers of themes, product inspiration, colors, textures, and more are releasing in December!
“Not only does Jennifer have an amazing eye for design and an impressive biography of work both on air and in her design firm portfolio, she also harnesses her craft to forecast design themes in a way that captivates the mind. She impressed the Informa team and the advisory council that serves the TISE event,” says Dana Hicks, Show Director, “and her initial presentations to the group were inspiring. We are looking forward to seeing her heightened and dramatic displays that will dive attendees into her design world visions. It was an easy decision for the TISE team to make Jennifer the face of this new feature.”
