MAPLEWOOD, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Resource Home Show, a home improvement trade show, returns after a three plus year hiatus to connect regional homeowners and home design enthusiasts with an eclectic arsenal of home improvement professionals.
Specialists spanning a broad cross-section of fields including interior design, architecture, restoration, home maintenance, pools and landscapes, solar, art installation, home organization, and so much more, will engage visitors through creative displays, educational presentations, and pop-up shops.
The brainchild of Realtors®, Lisa Danbrot and Carla Labianca of Danbrot+Labianca Properties with Compass NJ, whose online platforms include Inhabit Your Home Blog and the popular Facebook Groups SoMa at Home and Soma at Home Salvage Market, founded the Show in 2018 and have sponsored and produced it since.
"A home is both its material construct and the way we experience the space inside. The vision of the show is to represent both realms. So, the Show includes a wide variety of home improvement specialists,” says Danbrot.
Perhaps the most important thing about the Show is its charitable component. Proceeds will go to support Target ALS which envisions a world where effective treatments for all forms of ALS will lead to a world where everyone with ALS lives. Target ALS harnesses the power of collaborations to accelerate translation of most promising ideas for drug discovery into clinical trials.
Tammy Keck, the former Publisher of Design New Jersey Magazine, who has partnered with the Show since 2019 says: "The Resource Home Show is a wonderful opportunity for home & design related businesses to connect with passionate, local homeowners. We also benefited from time spent networking with other businesses exhibiting at the show. A productive and enjoyable community event that continues to yield results two years later."
Special highlights of the event are the Designer Showcases in which Interior Designers create environments to offer a sampling of their work. They include: The Inspired Garden by Laura Janney, Liz Curry Studio, Inside HOME by Robert White, Urban Casa, and Liquidscapes, a pool design and installation company.
This year’s talented Exhibitors, some returning, include: AV Luxury Design, The Brady Studio, California Closets, Clawson Architects, Clawson Cabinets, Grit & Honey Home Organizing, Guaranteed Rate, Gutter Helmet by Lednor Home Solutions, Idea Space, KRA Insurance Agency, The Maplewood Historic Preservation Commission, Maplewood Mercantile, Neolith, Paul Blizard Landscaping, Power Home Remodeling, Ricciardi Brothers, Rumbolo Art Services, Screenmobile of Maplewood, The South Orange Historical and Preservation Society, Studio Envie, Studio J Glass, Trinity Solar, Ultra Construction Group LLC., and Walden Interiors.
Pop-up shops showcasing beautiful wares for home include imPerfect Studio, KCB Curated, and Penchant for Pretty.
Interior design photographer, Aimee Herring Ryan of aimee.photos, will be documenting the event.
“What if we could give our community and clients a one-stop place to meet, to have that very important face-to-face conversation with some talented home improvement professionals? And the Show was born,” says Labianca.
The demos and presentations include Antique Window Repair with Paul Lewis of 2GFN, How to Get Your Dream Garden with Laura Janney of The Inspired Garden, Home Maintenance 101 with Ernie Borsellino of All-Pro Home Inspections, Fitted and Folded: How to Fold a Fitted Sheet with Frances Greene of Grit + Honey Home Organizing, The Ladies of SoMa at Home, with Sarah Gee of Sarah Gee Interiors and Carla Labianca of Danbrot + Labianca Properties, and more.
