Robb & Stucky Interiors at Town Square Las Vegas is offering residents a chance to enhance their design skills with several in-store seminars during March focusing on design techniques, introductions to the latest trends and guidelines for home accessorizing. The Thursday afternoon seminars are free and open to the public.

Around the World of Style with Robb & Stucky Interiors will be presented at 2 p.m. March 6. During the session, Ellie Stanisci, design director, and Amber Schofield, interior designer, will explore design elements from China, Mexico and Italy among other places while touring the showroom. Incorporating global influences into one’s home also will be discussed.

Living al Fresco is the topic for the 2 p.m. March 13 session, which will offer inspirational ideals to transform a patio into an outdoor living space that can be enjoyed year-round.

Jewelry for the Home: The Art of Accessorizing will be presented at 2 p.m. March 20. Participants will discover how to arrange and incorporate just the right touches into their décors. For the session, Stanisci will be joined by interior designers Nina Rinck and Jenni Johnson in the store’s boutique.

A design/redesign workshop will be presented March 27. During the session, several staff interior designers will provide ideas and suggestions to help participants design and decorate their homes in their own styles and identify their goals for each space. Those attending are encouraged to bring floor plans, blueprints, fabrics, color swatches, photos and questions.

Reservations are requested and can be made by calling 531-0539.

Robb & Stucky Interiors is located at 6521 Las Vegas Boulevard South.

Blenko glass pieces offered to PBS viewers

Viewers of Vegas PBS will have the opportunity to receive an exclusive piece of Blenko glass designed specifically for the nonprofit organization’s March membership drive.

Anyone pledging $365 during the airing of “Blenko: The Spirit of American Stained Glass,” will receive a limited edition vase in tangerine. The Blenko original will not be available at any other time or through any vendor or retail outlet.

The show is scheduled to air at 7:30 p.m. Thursday on Channel 10. Renowned glassmaker Richard Blenko will be in the studio at Vegas PBS during the program’s breaks.

Blenko Glass Co. was founded in Milton, W.Va., in 1921 by Richard Blenko’s great-grandfather, William John Blenko. The company is known for its unusual and valuable hand-blown glass pieces that are produced in a variety of colors and are popular among collectors around the world.

Other Blenko pieces will be available during the program, however they are not exclusive to the membership drive. They are: Daisy bowl (tangerine), $75 donation; water bottle (dreamcicle), $135 donation; Optic pitcher (electric/crys), $225 donation; vase (clover), $325 donation; and centerpiece (tangerine), $525 donation.

Additionally, two special packages, including all of the pieces — both with and without the exclusive Vegas vase — are being offered. The Sunset package is offered for $1,300 and doesn’t include the limited edition vase, while all the pieces can be obtained for a $1,600 pledge. As a bonus, anyone pledging for either of these packages will receive a Blenko Topaz Star paperweight.
