Design Editor and Entertainment Expert Eddie Ross joined host Lynni Megginson of Lynni Megginson Designs at Baker Furniture in Georgetown earlier this month to celebrate the launch of his new book Modern Mix, Curating Personal Style with Chic & Accessible Finds.
Guests and the DC-area’s top designers, like Kelley Proxmire, Marika Meyer, David Benton, Liz Levin, Lauren Liess, and Michael Hampton, along with EasyPaint’s Marty Cornish and John Rosen, joined Ross, who is known for turning thrift store finds into charming treasures, and co-author Jaithan Kochar for a night of casual conversation, Southern-inspired food by Chef Ed Jiloca of Relish Catering, beverages from Zevia, and mini pies by Lindsay Miniaci of Sweetly Anchored Patisserie.
Vocalist Hayley Gayne and pianist Manuel Medina entertained the crowd, while Ross discussed the making of Modern Mix, which he says is “living with old things in a new way.”
To kick off the holiday season, a portion of the Modern Mix book sales at this event will be donated to Manna Food Center, along with additional donations from Lynni Megginson Designs and MoKi Media.
