Tour This Designer Show House

Take a stroll through the exquisitely designed show house at the 27th annual Western Design Conference

The Western Design Conference is a celebration of art, design and fashion with a passion for the West. Each year, furniture makers, interior designers and builders come together to create a show house infused with Western design, spirit and art. Take a tour of the 2019 Designer Show House below.


The exterior of the Designer Show House was created by B&B Builders of Rigby, Idaho, with rustic wooden beams framing the entrance to the five-room house that the over 4,500 guests of this year’s show could explore during the four-day celebration in Jackson Hole. 

Old Hickory Furniture collaborated with Pendleton to create spectacular pieces for the exterior of the home as well as designing an entire bedroom inside.

Harker Design, based in Idaho, Wyoming and Utah, created a rich and cozy living room space in the Designer Show House.

The room is complete with a black-and-natural wood rustic-meets-modern fireplace, tan leather chairs and a pop of color with a comfy rust red sofa and Western accents including a mounted skull and antlers.

Old Hickory Furniture Company’s Creative Director Jeremiah Young collaborated with Pendleton Woolen Mills on upholstery, blankets and pillows, combining furniture and fabrics from the two iconic American companies in this all-American bedroom.

Twin Roundup Beds, ottomans, the Gathering Lamp and ladders for holding Pendleton blankets as well as artwork from Judd Thompson inspired by Pendleton colors expertly fill the space. 


Nanette Mattei created a seating space called the gem lounge inspired by turquoise gems used by Native Americans for jewelry design. The colors and shapes can be seen in the wallpaper, the throw pillows found on nubby white chairs and the sculpture on the contemporary glass table. Artwork from the Diehl Gallery in Jackson hangs on the back wall of the room creating a beautiful conversation piece.

WRJ Design created a large living space and bedroom for the Show House this year with Poltrona Frau leather chairs, luxurious fur pillows and lamps by Carlo Moretti for Poltrona Frau. WRJ Design’s room included copies of the firm’s new coffee table book Natural Elegance just released in September by Vendome.
