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 icon Corey Grant Tippin.
Corey began his professional career working in the field of fashion and photography in the very beginning of 1970's Paris and NYC. He was fortunate to have has the most prominent leaders of Art, Fashion, Design, and Style as mentors.
The palpable shift to an expanding intreset in what became known as "lifestyle" publications allowed Corey to broaden his talents. Again the rare experiance of learning from and working with the visionaries of the pre digital age gave Corey the opportunity of styling for magazine editorials, books, television and film.
Today's market has allowed Corey, as a Stylist and Art Director, to work closely with Interior Designers, Photographers, Commerical Brands, Retail Stores, Film Makers and Authors. The collaboration of image making is Coreys ultimate passion.
