Wine & Words: “Interiors for Collectors” by John Phifer Marrs

Date: Nov 11, 2023
Time: 7:00 PM

Chandor Gardens Foundation Inc invites you to the ongoing “Wine & Words” Speaker Series the evening of Saturday, November 11, 2023 in the Great Room at Chandor Gardens, Weatherford, TX to hear interior designer and author John Phifer Marrs speak about designing Interiors for Collectors. Presented with charm and a magical sense of humor through entertaining stories and anecdotes.

John Phifer Marrs, an expert interior designer and purveyor of antiques, presents a luxurious look at unique and beautiful ways to display collected objects of just about anything and everything you can imagine - from arranging in a cabinet to using an entire wing of a house.

When a client has multiple items that could make up a collection, gathering them and displaying them in a beautiful arrangement is his specialty. But aesthetics aren’t the only considerations. Many clients’ collections include valuable art, books, or historical documents that need to be preserved and protected in the proper casing, framing, and lighting.

“I think everyone should collect something,” – John Phifer Marrs

His book Interiors for Collectors is about the joy of collecting and his passion for displaying just about anything and everything in unique and beautiful ways. It is an inspirational guide for displaying collections exquisitely, and contains many lavish photographs.

John’s book Interiors for Collectors will be available for purchase at this event.

Book signing immediately following presentation.
