Design in Sync: The Benefits of Enduring Collaborations

Who knew that a chance encounter on a bus ride to New York City would lay the foundation of a nearly two decade collaboration in design?

Since 2004, Kelly Taylor Interior Design and Tracy Glover Studio have developed a design partnership that transcends the mere specification of product. Join them to learn how they have united to brainstorm, create, innovate, grow their businesses and provide exceptional design details to their clients. A talk and presentation will be followed by plenty of time for questions and idea-sharing.

KTID and TGS will provide lunch. Because this session has limited capacity, we ask that you please only sign up if you plan to attend.

Kelly Taylor

After many years at architecture firms in NYC and Providence, Kelly Taylor founded KTID in 2004, eager to guide clients through the often complex process of architectural design. She has been honored with many awards, including New England Home magazine’s “5 Under 40” Award, which highlights design talent across the region. Kelly is a co-founder of DesignxRI and is an active community member and sustainability advocate. She holds her undergraduate degrees in Interior Design (Parson’s) and English (C of C) and a Master of Sustainable Design (BAC).

Tracy Glover

Tracy Glover uses traditional Italian techniques to craft her exuberant glassworks. Each is uniquely handblown to order in her Pawtucket, RI studio. Tracy has a glassmaking BFA from RISD. She honed her craft in a 13th century Belgian convent’s crystal factory and Dale Chihuly’s Pilchuck School, where she was mentored by Venetian maestri-in-residence. Delighting in the physicality of the process, it’s no coincidence she is an avid oarsman, rowing daily at dawn. The prismatic meeting of sunlight and tides is invariably echoed in her translucent, faceted glass designs.
