Since 1984, the Richmond Symphony Orchestra League has sponsored the Designer House to raise money for the Richmond Symphony. RSOL selects a large host home for the event, and then invites local designers to compete for the opportunity to decorate one of the 20 to 30 spaces inside and outside the home. The designers transform their spaces, donating their time and materials.
The Designer House month-long event features daily general admission tours, an on-site Café and a Boutique featuring items like clothing, jewelry, accessories, home goods, stationery and crafts.
Special events such as the Preview Gala, Thirsty Thursdays and Special Events are offered.
