Highly Anticipated "Jeff Lewis" Event Coming Soon!

BIG NEWS: Corey Damen Jenkins is working behind the scenes designing the set of an upcoming promotional show for Bravo Network's hot new show Interior Therapy With Jeff Lewis! The series follows Jeff Lewis and Jenni Pulos as they move into their client's home and Lewis does what Lewis does best — judge their flaws and redesign their space.

He'll observe the homeowners, diagnose their problems, and then take over their house for five days — with the goal of improving them inside and out.

The show premiered last Thursday to rave reviews and high ratings. The Michigan set will feature furnishings from Art Van and Scott Shuptrine and will portray a highly stylized modern "therapist office".

Official Photos: "Salon De Musique"

We are excited to share photos of the music room Salon de Musique which opened to the public on November 16th, 2011! Designed by Corey Damen Jenkins and housed at Judy Frankel’s Antique Centre Of Troy, Salon de Musique is a fresh, 21st Century interpretation of the neoclassic French Provencal music room. Invited guests that attended the grand opening enjoyed several live concerts courtesy of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s organization.

Salon de Musique was the finale in the popular “The Art Of Designing With Antiques” program, a series that demonstrated how antique furnishings, accessories and artwork can be incorporated into modern interior design. A major 1stdibs.com dealer, Judy Frankel Antiques has become a destination resource for interior designers worldwide due to its unique and diverse array of English, French, and Belgian antiques. Corey Damen Jenkins opted to develop a neoclassical-styled music room, framed within a Gentlemen’s study. The room also had a reception area featuring two very unusual cane/bamboo/metal chairs.

A rare gold and black lacquered Bosendorfer piano served as Salon de Musique’s focal point. A signature piece provided courtesy of Evola Music, the piano is No. 13 of thirteen units made—each dedicated to one of Mozart’s classic concertos. A wall covered with a bevy of 19th and early 20th century gilded mirrors provided a dramatic backdrop for this stunning instrument.

In keeping with the spirit of its theme, Salon de Musique’s premiere featured live musical concerts by the Detroit Symphony Civic Ensembles program. A Jazz Trio greeted guests upon arrival while a violinist and flautist strolled among the crowds as they toured the 10,000-plus square foot gallery. A pianist mastered the Bosendorfer itself. Nearly 300 design and music enthusiasts were in attendance for the grand opening.
