The new startup company, Classic Exhibitions and Conferences, LLC, will be putting together a new interior design exhibition happening this fall. Fine Interiors Chattanooga will be an interactive exhibition showcasing the finest interior design trends, inspirational decor, fine furniture, objet d'art, architecture and fine living. 

It will take place Sept. 27-30 at the Chattanooga Convention Center, 1150 Carter St. This will be a first annual event. 

In a collaborative effort, leading interior designers are invited to decorate zones with vendors taking vignette booth spaces around the installations to help centralize their networking and to allow them to showcase more of their products range or services. The event has been designed to attract clients looking to meet designers in person, learn more about the latest trends, experience new collections, meet artists, listen to authors, sample hors d’ oeuvres and enjoy the installations. 

“Chattanooga has a vibrant, talented and growing design community, this event is intended to celebrate and showcase this amazing talent pool” says Managing Director Nigel Brown. 

Currently, the organizers invite specialists from the following categories to participate such as Interior designers, architects, custom home builders, kitchen, bathroom & outdoor specialists, high end furniture retailers, custom furniture specialists, artists, art and antique dealers, fabric, trimming and wallpaper retailers, as well as those who specialize in fine lighting and sophisticated gifts. The event would be an ideal platform to promote unique products and superior services, said officials.
