About the Presentation

 Doug Van Tress

Doug Van Tress

Antiques purveyor, taste-maker and globetrotter Doug Van Tress has seen it all in pursuit of perfect pieces for his acclaimed Chicago showroom The Golden Triangle. Beauty is one thing, authenticity is another – and not every exciting discovery is a good purchase. Experience is worthwhile, but expertise is priceless. With his trained eye and passion for design, Doug offers insight on the antique buying process, revealing how he determines quality, provenance and value and shares an easy checklist for even the novice. Join us for a lively, story-filled and engaging master class on what to look for and how to buy antique and vintage furnishings with confidence. Immediately following we board trolleys for stops at four, nearby historic homes. In each home, local designers showcase living and dining room examples of blending antiques with current pieces for a truly spectacular interior. We return to the Winnetka Community House with both inspiration and time to shop the A+M Show. Light refreshments will be included.
