About Luncheon By Design

For years, Luncheon by Design has served as the not-to-be-missed fundraising event drawing Denver’s design and creative community, lovers of architecture and fashion, and supporters of the architecture and design department for an exclusive presentation featuring renowned authors, scholars and designers.

Past speakers have included Gregory Bishop, director of Cartier Tradition; renowned interior designer Eric Cohler; and the museum’s own Florence Müller, Avenir Foundation Curator of Textile Art and Fashion.

Luncheon By Design 2021

This year, guests will be transported to Dawnridge, the Beverly Hills estate of legendary designer Tony Duquette. Speaker Hutton Wilkinson, who had a decades-long collaboration with the late designer and now oversees the home, will share details on its majestic details, resourceful design, and cinematic drama.

Additional programs include an exploration of "glamour at home" with local designers, and an intimate segment with Cecilia Peck, daughter of Veronique and Gregory Peck, on her parents’ famously stylish home.

Co-Chairs: Joy Dinsdale, Sharton Martin, Amanda J. Precourt, and Tina Walls.
