To mark the launch of a new textile line from luxury brand Fortuny, CIRCA Interiors & Antiques hosted an intimate dinner at the home of Patricia and Bruce Flachs on Sept. 16. The Venetian textile house recently debuted its IMAGO fabrics at CIRCA’s retail store at Shops at Morrison. Guests included Fortuny CEO Maury Riad, who recently moved to Charlotte; CIRCA owner and designer Cindy Smith; CIRCA senior designer and art director Heather Smith; and other local interior designers. Heather Smith staged the tablescape with Fortuny fabrics, and guests enjoyed a five-course tasting menu, cocktails and dessert. The evening was capped with a harp performance by Jayne Sprinkle.
