They say everything's big in Texas and I'm expecting to have a big time at Louis Shanks.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
World-renowned artist and designer Bob Timberlake will make an exclusive area appearance at Louis Shanks in Houston on November 8th.
Best known for his American Realist style works, Bob Timberlake is celebrated for his lifelike paintings of his rural North Carolina home and eclectic, lifestyle approach to furniture design. In 1990, Timberlake partnered with Lexington Home Brands to create "The World of Bob Timberlake." The extensive collection achieved groundbreaking success and remains the world’s best selling furniture brand. In 2010, Mr. Timberlake was inducted into the American Furniture Foundation's Hall of Fame for his contributions to the industry.
Early this year a new chapter in Timberlake’s career began when he forged a new partnership with Hickory, NC based Century Furniture. His new collection, which includes a hundred plus pieces, highlights the artist’s attention to detail and the casual elegance that has become synonymous with the Bob Timberlake brand. Century describes the line as, “the perfect combination of high style and creature comforts.”
“Bob is a true legend in the furniture industry, and we are thrilled to have him come speak at our store,” said Mike Forwood, president at Louis Shanks. “We have carried his products for over 20 years now, and I personally feel his work is the perfect cross between down-home Texas comforts and fine furniture -- something we have always offered at Louis Shanks.”
Louis Shanks’ Houston showroom, located at 2800 Fondren Road, will host the American design icon for a meet and greet, presentation and autograph signing. Frequently described as a natural storyteller, Bob Timberlake will speak to fans about his more than 40 years of award winning work in fine art and the furniture industry, including his newest collections with Century Furniture.
"I am so honored Louis Shanks asked me to come visit this November and see all the fine folks in Houston. For me, it's so exciting to share all the new designs I've developed with Century Furniture and to finally have a chance to share them with the consumers,” said Bob Timberlake. “They say everything's big in Texas and I'm expecting to have a big time at Louis Shanks."
The event kicks off at 1:30 PM with the meet and greet, followed by a presentation at 2:00 and autographs beginning at 3:00. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served. Louis Shanks asks that attendees RSVP to 713.780.9770. More information at http://www.louisshanksfurniture.com.
