On April 28th von Hemert Interiors invited a few hundred of their closest friends and clients to a very special Royal Wedding event celebrating the coming nuptials of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. The evening was centered around all things British including vintage diamond tiaras, a Union Jack mini cooper, Versace china and an elaborate royal wedding cake designed by Christopher Garren’s Let Them Eat Cake Bakery. Models walked around the showroom in elaborate gowns designed by celebrity fashion designer Oday Shakar. Author and contributing editor of House Beautiful, Emily Evans Eerdmans gave a presentation on classic English design and antiques. The von Hemert showroom showcased a beautiful display of over a hundred pieces of English furniture reproductions by manufacturer Theodore Alexander. Five percent of von Hemert Interiors sales and jewelry sales from the weekend benefitted the American Red Cross Japanese disaster relief. This fabulous evening will go down in the von Hemert’s memory as being one of their most treasured events.
