I was privileged this year to be asked again for a sculptural work to be featured in the Cashiers Designer Showhouse to benefit the Cashiers Historical Society. My piece was featured on the front porch of this modern rustic luxury mountain cottage in Silver Run Reserve. The porch was designed by Ann Sherrill, owner and lead designer at Rusticks in Cashiers and it was a show stopper to be sure!
I love creating special pieces like this one because they work both indoors or on a covered porch like this one. It's a truly versatile piece that brings the whimsy and beauty of nature into the living environment.
This beauty is now available! 50” x 25” wall hanging perfect for interiors or a fully covered porch. $3,295. Complimentary delivery and installation for WNC residents. Email me for purchase inquiries.
About the Cashiers Designer Show House
"Sprawling across nearly 300 acres of natural beauty and adjoining the Nantahala National Forest, lies Silver Run Reserve, the location of the 2020 Cashiers Designer Showhouse (CDS). Silver Run was originally assembled by the civic-minded Neely family as a private family estate nearly 40 years ago. Located within the prestigious southern corridor of Cashiers, Silver Run is in the midst of a revival as it is being transformed into a private, low-density, wonderfully amenitized mountain community.
The 2020 Showhouse is a 3,000-square-foot Mountain Modern Cottage, custom-designed by the renowned Meyer Greeson Paullin Benson firm and built by Cashiers’ own Harris Custom Builders. With beautiful mountain and wooded views, and close to the center of the community and The Lodge, the Showhouse is surrounded by tranquility and beauty. Leading local, regional, and national interior designers will grace one of Cashiers' most storied properties with a collective aesthetic vision for a once-in-a-lifetime Showhouse.
The Cashiers Designer Showhouse is the Cashiers Historical Society's signature fundraising event. In partnership with Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, CDS raises vital funds to support our mission and cultural programming." - CashiersHistoricalSociety.org
