The designer showcase is a space in Fairfield County Antique and Design Center transformed by distinguished interior designers into an exhibition of antiques, fine furnishings, and exquisite décor. These select designers utilize all that Fairfield County Antique and Design Center and its dealers have to offer, allowing their vignette to come to life. The showcase of each designer's take on a room allows us to appreciate their unique vision and taste, offering varied perspectives and a fresh take on the art of staging interior spaces.
Our current designer showcase has been designed by the exciting, young interior designer Patrick Mele.
Recognized by Vogue, Departures, Sotheby’s and New York Magazine for his unique approach
to the worlds of decoration and design, Patrick Mele culls the best from the past and present in an effort to create environments that feel timeless. With a passion for wide ranging style, Mele cultivates dynamic rooms, that tell a layered story based on their architecture, location and the people inhabiting them.
With a degree in Art History and Cultural Studies from New York University’s Gallatin School, his aesthetic has been informed by the evolution and interplay between art, architecture, decorative-arts and fashion throughout history.
Professional experience with some of America’s most iconic retails brands, including Ralph Lauren, Kate Spade, Brand No. 9, J. Crew, Schumacher, and David Yurman, has given Patrick the expertise to create a seamless identity.

Following both a degree in Interior Design Krista earned from Miami University of Ohio and her second degree from the School of Art Institute of Chicago in Interior Architecture, Krista moved from the midwest with the intent to gain work experience with some of the best interior designers in New York City. After eight years as a Senior Designer with design masters such as John Saladino and Victoria Hagan, Krista's career path naturally led her to gravitate toward a high level of taste and client expectation that has grown into a thriving residential interiors firm. Voted one of Connecticut Cottages and Gardens Magazine's "Best" in 2008, Krista was able to take that degree of professionalism combined with her talent with colors, materials, scale, and creativity, and turn it into a firm based on solid design principles...with the addition of the unexpected. Since the firm's establishment in 1994, the focus has always been the "translation" of a client's wants and needs into a space that ultimately works for and inspires them.
