lavishLast week, we told you about Lavish 2018, a bi-annual event held by the International Interior Design Association’s Dallas City Center council.

The event, which will showcase neighborhoods in Dallas this year, is part art installation (design teams create vignettes that represent the neighborhood they’ve chosen) and part silent auction (all the items in the vignettes are up for grabs).

The event will be held at 6 p.m. on May 11 at the 2616 Commerce Events Center.
