Pictures from the Designers' Showhouse in Blacksburg VA

Last night was the opening reception
of the Designers' Showhouse
to benefit the Lunch Pail Scholarship Fund
for more information,

Mike (co-owner of Black Dog)
& Susie Whiteside (Whiteside Designs) teamed
up to design a few areas of the house.

The front porch has a custom bench,
built here in our shop,
matching plant stands,
and a driftwood ball.

St. Francis of Assisi makes for a
welcome entrance.
This is one of many reproduction
garden statuaries available here
at Black Dog. To see an online
catalog, click here.
They are made in North Carolina
and are very high quality
quartz sand cast concrete, made from
molds of antique statuary.

To the right of the front door,
this console table greets you.
Note the framed antique ceiling tin
above. And... it wouldn't be complete in
Hokie Country without a gobbler!

This little nook features a custom
bench fabricated from antique wrought iron.

These benches offer great storage
for entry ways or mudrooms.

Here's Susie!
Susie was given the task of
designing the dining room,
which was a true artistic collaboration
and captured a fun, energetic spirit!

Antique stained glass windows
salvaged from a church adorn the windows
and tie together the vibrant colors.
An antique sette offers bench seating

This custom mirror w/ a copper patina
was built by our friend John Davis.
Sidenote: he also designs super cool teardrop trailers
which we'll blog more about later.

Gill Pollard's Hay Bales
offer the perfect touch.
Note the custom wine rack in the corner,
fabricated here in our shop.

I left the best for last... my absolute favorite detail!
This light fixture was fabricated here in the
shop and covered with a fun and fanciful fabric.
All the items in the showhouse are
available for sale. For more information
