Robb & Stucky to host free design workshops

Robb & Stucky Interiors at Town Square Las Vegas invites area residents to attend its free Thursday afternoon interior design workshops. April’s sessions will focus on incorporating personal treasures in your home’s décor and lighting.

“Your Treasured Items Spark Creative Design” is the topic of the session April 16. During the workshop, designers Julie Cole and William Elson will show participants how to take their treasures and blend them to create a unique style. Additionally, information about restoration, repainting and recovering will be featured. The designers also will help determine when it is time to relinquish certain pieces.

On April 23, lighting will be discussed in a special off-site seminar. “Illuminating Design at the New American Home” will be presented at the New American Home, 6755 Agave Azul Court. The home was built for the 2009 International Builders Show to showcase new technology and designs. Staff designers Lee Lundquist, Kellie Miller and Kevin Johnson will present information on the various layers of lighting and how each can enhance the look of a room.

Each session is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.

Reservations are requested and can be made by calling 531-0531, option 5.

The store is located at 6521 Las Vegas Blvd. South.
