New York furniture designer visits Valdosta

June 21, 2006

Valdosta - A flea market purchase inspires designs for a line of furniture.  New York furniture designer and interior decorator Rick Shaver visited Turner's Fine Furniture in Valdosta.

He has designed furniture for former President Bill Clinton and Stanford University, but this is Shaver's first venture into designing for the retail market. 

And he said the inspiration for the designs came from an old box of photographs he found at a flea market.  "In that box of photos was basically someone's vacation shot from the nineteen teens and twenties and they took place on board luxury liners."  Shaver's collection will be available in Turner Fine Furniture stores in Valdosta, Tifton, and Albany.
