The Pat Plaxico Garden at the Bernice Bienenstock Furniture Library


About The Garden Project

Your gift will help fund the Pat Plaxico Garden Project as well as additional $10,000 student design competition awards that nurture exceptional design talent in our industry. The Bienenstock Furniture Library is the premier furniture research and design library in the world with over 5,000 furniture and design specific volumes, including many rare editions. The garden project will compliment recently completed interior renovations to the High Point, NC based library, a place where furniture and interior designers, students and researchers continue to find design inspiration.

“Pat Plaxico has been a valuable friend to the furniture industry, the design community, the Bernice Bienenstock Furniture Library, and the Bienenstock family for many years. I am pleased that the Pat Plaxico Gardens at the Library will give permanent recognition to her talent and generous spirit. The Gardens will be a wonderful place where students, designers, and all visitors with an interest in design, can find inspiration.”
