Naples, FL (PRWEB) November 07, 2014
U.S. Antique Shows announced today that the company will be one of five sponsors for the upcoming panel discussion, The Future of Antiques: Antiques and Design in the 21st Century. The evening affair, hosted by The HighBoy, will be held Nov. 20, 2014 from 7-9 p.m. at the Jonathan Burden gallery in Tribeca.
“The HighBoy aims to bring antiques to a whole new generation of buyers,” says founder Olga Granda-Scott. “Those buyers don’t just want a marketplace; they want an experience, which includes cultivating a real sense of the people and ideas that unite design and antiques. The HighBoy hopes that events, such as The Future of Antiques, will begin a new conversation and community for antique and design lovers.”
The event will include an engaging panel featuring esteemed antique experts Judith Miller, Toma Clark Haines, and Olga Granda-Scott. It will be moderated by Traditional Home Senior Editor Doris Athineos. Immediately following the panel, Judith Miller will be available to sign copies of her latest book, Arts & Crafts: Living with Arts & Crafts. Cocktails will be served.
Below are the biographies of the featured moderator and panelists:
Senior Antiques and Art Editor, Traditional Home
Doris Athineos writes about fine and decorative arts, artisans, design, and collecting.

Her articles have appeared in The New York Times, The New York Observer, Architectural Digest, Wine Spectator, Art & Auction, and other publications.
Antique Expert & Author, Miller's Antiques & Collectibles

She appears regularly on British television, pens an antiques column for Forbes, and lectures around the world including the V&A in London and the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
Founder, The HighBoy
The HighBoy is the Curated Marketplace for Antiques & Fine Art. As an antique dealer herself for over a decade at Alhambra Antiques in Miami, Olga was frustrated by the lack of technological innovation in the industry, and thus The HighBoy was born. Dubbed "a hip contender to the antiques throne" by The Wall Street Journal, The HighBoy marries the beauty and sophistication of antiques, decorative arts, and jewelry with the innovations of 21st century technology.
