Noted designers to speak at furnishings symposium

        Internationally known architect and University of Cincinnati alum Michael Graves will speak Thursday as part of the Design on the Edge symposium at the University of Kentucky in Lexington.

        Mr. Graves will join nationally recognized interior designer William Peace for a discussion on “Rethinking Home.” The 1:30 p.m. public lecture will be in the Student Center Ballroom on the main UK campus.

        General admission: $12. Information: (859) 257-3106.

        Design on the Edge, sponsored by Bittners, a Louisville-based furniture and interior design business that has a design studio in the Kenwood Galleria, will include a national student furniture design competition and a museum exhibition.

        The challenge for this year's National Student Furniture Competition was to design a bench, adaptable to modern lifestyles and available for indoor or outdoor use. Winning designs will be announced Wednesday and go on display Wednesday through Oct. 6 in the Interior Design Gallery, 102 Funkhouser Building, on the UK campus.

        The exhibition, “From Post-War to Post-Modern: Interior Textiles, 1946-1976,” documents textile surface embellishments used in interior settings. The exhibit will be on display through Dec. 31 at the Headley-Whitney Museum in Lexington. For more information about the exhibit, call (859) 255-6653.
