#DesignLUX Wants to See How YOU are Bringing Traditional Design into the 21st Century

HELLO Designers & Architects! 

We have a bit of a favor to ask of you all.  You see, during Neocon 2015 in Chicago this year, #DesignLUX and the team at DCoopMedia is exploring the changing tides of traditional design - be it from an architectural standpoint of classically inspired structures or from an interior designer's point of view, updating the traditional design aesthetic for the modern day functional family.  Be if the primitive and grassroots influenced Spanish & Mission styles beckoning to California's newborn years or the highly ornate Federalist and Regency styles made popular at the start of the Colonies, environments deeply rooted in tradition and regional heritage continue to remain at the foundation of good taste and classic design

This is where you come in.  Classically inspired design continues to reinvent itself through the innovations of craftspeople, the imaginations of interior designers, and the insight of architects not to mention the influence of technology, methods, and region.  We want to see how YOU and your firm or studio has found inspiration from the design classics, bringing to life projects which are at once traditional in style but still fresh, stylish, and ready for the demands of the 21st century.

Tag your photo with the #DesignLUX hashtag.

#DesignLUX favorites will be on display during #Neocon2015 in Chicago as well as shared during a special 21st Century Traditional chat on June 19th.  And the best?  They'll be included (with your permission of course!) in a lookbook to be distributed to media outlets around the world.

If you'll be in Chicago this year for Neocon, shoot us a message as we're planning an extra special event at the Wood-Mode Lifestyle Design Center.
