Paul and Pifuka Hardt of RiNo's so-hip P Design Gallery are in a tizzy. She's pregnant, they're in the process of expanding their showroom, and they're preparing for a new show that's near and dear to their hearts: an all-Colorado home-furnishings design fest showcasing about ten or so companies students, pros and emerging designers alike that the couple narrowed down from nearly fifty entries.
Heading that list is a P Design favorite, DoubleButter, whose David Larabee and Dexter Thornton are introducing a sleek new series of outdoor furniture, and ceramic artist Angela Schwab of INV/ALT Design, who takes an unorthodox approach toward creating her functional wares, which include magnetized cups and vintage cupcake plates elevated on wine-glass stems. But the show, curated by Jaime Kopke, truly runs the design gamut.
CO-DESIGN: An Exhibition of Colorado's Top Designers continues through August 25. P Design is at 2590 Walnut Street; call 720-259-2516 or go to www.pdesigngallery.com for details.
July 14-Aug. 25
