MadeInRVA – Handcrafted Furniture & Lighting Show

The first ever Made In RVA Handcrafted Furniture & Lighting Show has come to a close here at LaDiff, and it did not disappoint. The exhibit running from Friday, March 6th – March 22nd, 2015 showcased 17 local artisans and displayed their wide array of work from meticulously crafted furniture to timeless lighting fixtures. Our involvement in the international design community gives us an enormous appreciation for what we have right here in Richmond and we were absolutely thrilled to host such an event.

The show kicked off with a bang at the First Friday Opening Night in our newly renovated outdoor space (see interview on renovation). The wine was flowing, the cheese was plentiful, and despite the post-snow drudge, the atmosphere was warm. RVA came out in full support to see what these artists had to offer. The level of creativity on display was astonishing, right down to the business card holders!

We at LaDiff would like to extend a most heartfelt THANK YOU to all who came to see these great designs, those who helped organize the event, and the artisans themselves. If you weren’t fortunate enough to make it out to the exhibit, take a peek at the artist’s work online or in our gallery below.
