Design of the Times

To heck with Home and Garden Television -- at least for today. The Phoenix Contemporary Design Fair will preempt HGTV in the hearts and minds of the design-savvy public by uniting them with the contemporary design community. The local folks who bring us the best in furniture and home design will take over the Anchor Manufacturing Building in downtown Phoenix, filling it with the best in shiny, new modern furniture and providing first looks at up-and-coming premier designs. The designers themselves will be on hand to discuss their latest work at PCDF’s fourth annual exhibition.
Sat., April 25, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2009
