At the Show - Exhibits

This week, we bring you exhibits of two room boxes. Both are uniquely designed living rooms and very different in style. The first one has a Native American Art theme. The other is quite contemporary. Photographs are courtesy of Connie Sauve.

"The Gentleman Collector" room box was exhibited at the 2011 Good Sam Show. It is from the collection of Nancy Kovalik, San Jose. She told us, "My husband and I collect Native American Art--Southwest and Northwest, especially. So, I naturally started collecting miniature art, also."

The second room box is modern in design and decorated accordingly. At the same time, it is a welcoming room, both warm and inviting. It is neither too manly nor too frilly. The lace valances add a charming touch as does the dog stretched out asleep on the enclosed porch. Exhibited at the 2010 Good Sam Show. The exhibitor's name is unknown.
