Designer Showhouse
March 2013
Benefitting the Charleston Symphony Orchestra  

March 21-April 21, 2013 // 4 SOUTH ADGERS WHARF

WALK one of Charleston’s last remaining cobblestone streets, once the bustling center of the walled city’s shipping industry, and step into the past.

TOUR a circa-1800s cotton warehouse, converted into a home almost a century ago, as it now makes another transformation at the hands of some of the area’s most talented interior designers.

FIND creative solutions for smaller spaces in relaxed Charleston elegance, drawing from the water views and the very nature of this unique thick-walled structure.
