INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED DESIGNER TIMOTHY CORRIGAN LAUNCHES ANTIQUE COLLECTION Exclusive selection of inimitable antique furnishings and objects LOS ANGELES – (October 9, 2007) Culminating years of world travel, historical research and antique collecting, internationally acclaimed designer and antiques expert Timothy Corrigan today announces the launch of TIMOTHY CORRIGAN ANTIQUES, a wide ranging collection of items for purchase on his web site. Recognized for his innate ability to spot pieces that are rich in history, craftsmanship and value, Mr. Corrigan has spent years scouring international galleries, auction houses, antique dealers, as well as European fairs and flea markets to amass inimitable furnishings, art and accessories in a wide range of periods and styles. Mr. Corrigan has earned global recognition for designing some of the world’s most spectacular properties, and deals with an international clientele that includes Hollywood celebrities, European royalty and corporate leaders. He is understandably particular about the furnishings and accessories he uses in his projects; accordingly Timothy Corrigan Antiques reflects his discriminating taste, extensive knowledge and unerring eye. The use of antiques is integral to achieving Mr. Corrigan’s signature style of casually elegant interiors, and reflects his eco-luxury design philosophy that environmental consciousness doesn’t require sacrificing style, quality or effectiveness. “I have always used antiques in my projects because they have a wonderful sense of history and make every project feel special and unique.” Mr. Corrigan explains. “In terms of value, antiques are a far better investment as they hold their worth in a way that new or reproduction furniture does not. Finally, they are the ultimate “green” product as no new resources are used to produce them.” Named to Architectural Digest’s AD 100 and Robb Report’s Guide to the World’s Top 40 Interior Designers, Mr. Corrigan was recently chosen to design the Architectural Digest Greenroom at the 59th Primetime Emmy® Awards where several pieces from Timothy Corrigan Antiques were used. Until now, Mr. Corrigan’s private clients had sole access to his trove of antiques. With the launch of his web based collection, www.Timothy-Corrigan.com these goods are now accessible to the trade and general public alike. Timothy Corrigan Antiques follows the launch of Timothy Corrigan Home which offers a wide range of products including his line of signature candles and Timothy Corrigan Home Care, his line of premium eco-friendly home care products.
