Evette Ríos is an all-around home enthusiast – an entertaining, hosting, crafting and design expert who brings her approachable sense of humor, and belief in fun living to everything she does. She is currently a host of A&E’s Home.Made, a regular contributor to the Today Show, Rachael Ray and Sherri.

She is a trained interior designer, attending both Parsons School of Design and Harvard’s Graduate School of Design and spent years working alongside some of NYC’s top interior designers.

Market attendees are invited to join this panel of prolific designers as they discuss their diverse products and processes. The journey from concept to completion is discussed: from finding and partnering with aligned experts, manufacturers and artisans to connecting with consumers -- as well as the pros and cons along the way.

Champagne, wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres. RSVP: lisa@lisamcmahon.com

“We are thrilled to have Evette Rios join us at our showroom, and to collaborate with her our new licensed program with products set to launch at the spring 2023 High Point Market,” said Vinmara Laddha, LR Home.

Rios also produces and hosts a series called Holiday How To’s with Evette Ríos. In those episodes, Evette provides simple entertaining and cooking tips on everything from home-made holiday pie crusts and saucy buffalo wing fingers, to Halloween-themed shrimp cocktails that look like icky brains. She, also, loves posting personal Puerto Rican recipes online.

In her TV appearances, Evette quenches the audiences’ thirst for hands-on advice, innovative crafts, and dramatic room revisions – and with budget friendly projects that look like a million bucks. Rios, who is bi-lingual, has appeared on American Spanish language morning television show Despierta America, produced in Miami.

Evette credits her passion for crafting tasty but low-maintenance entertaining solutions to growing up with her oddly improvisational parents in Brooklyn. She loves throwing hip, sometimes even silly themed parties, and serving food and drinks inspired by cultures from around the world.

5 p.m.

Join Rios and LR Home to celebrate the company's new showroom's grand opening and Diwali. Indian food and beer and wine will be served.
