Furniture World News on

The Junior League of Greensboro, NC, Inc., announced the area designers selected to design interior rooms and exterior landscaping for the Inaugural Designer Showhouse event to take place April 29 – May 15, 2005. The home to be transformed is the 1926 Georgian-style home of Mrs. Anne Sprock. This grand and historic home, located at 815 Woodland Drive in the heart of Old Irving Park has panoramic views of the Greensboro Country Club golf course from several stately bay windows in the kitchen, dining room and den. The original design of this home began in 1924 and was completed in 1926 by one of Greensboro’s most talented and prolific architects of the 1920’s and 30’s, Charles C. Hartmann. The public will be invited to tour the home and attend special events throughout the two-week time period. Revenue generated will help support the many community projects of the Junior League. Selected designers and rooms include: Lindsey Henderson of Lindsey Henderson Interiors - Foyer; Jane Moffitt Beeker of JM Designs, Inc.- Living Room; Robert Schaffer of Thomasville Furniture Industries, Inc. - Solarium; Glen Lavinder of The Pink Door - Dining Room; Jon Spurlock, ASID of Grand All Over - Library and Bath; Rita Reynolds, ASID of Reynolds House Interiors, Inc. - Breakfast Room; Todd Nabors of Savvy by Design - Master Bedroom; Cynthia Parker, ASID of Studio Lau - Master Bathroom; Jane Matteson of Matteson Design - Dressing Room; Jane Ellison and Judy McAdoo of The Design Collection Ltd. – Bedroom One; Maria Money and Holly Kidd of Simple Pleasures Design Group, Inc. - Bedroom Two; Carolyn Jordan of Interiors by Carolyn Jordan - Adjoining Bath, and Debbi Kleisch of Interiors - Guest Suite.

This event would not be possible without the support of the local community. Carolina Bank has already endorsed the Junior League of Greensboro by becoming the first presenting sponsor at the $20,000 plus level. Bob Braswell, President and CEO of Carolina Bank, said, "We saw our contribution to the Junior League as serving a multitude of purposes: Carolina Bank's contribution continues to support the premier women's leadership group in Greensboro, who have started and maintained so many wonderful programs. When we look at the direction in which our contributions are going, we find the course of the Junior League of Greensboro on the same trend, therefore, by giving to the Junior League of Greensboro, it is an extension of Carolina Bank's philanthropies as the League is supporting the same initiatives that we see the bank supporting". Many other donations have been received, including all paint used in the Designer Showhouse, which was donated by Sherwin Williams. The Junior League of Greensboro, Inc., is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
