IFDA Member, Nancy Fire, the Creative Director and co-founder of her NYC – based company, Design Works International has used passion, creativity, and dedication to help clients update their brands, capitalize on emerging trends, and develop new product lines. In 2011 she was appointed the Design Director for both HGTV and their line of licensed products, HGTV HOME. Utilizing Nancy’s retail insights, Scripps Networks extended her involvement to HGTV’s sister brand, Food Network, in 2016, where she provides product development insights to Food Network’s licensing partner, Kohl’s. In addition, Fire was also Design Director for the Kelly Ripa Home, where she worked alongside the TV host and actress to create a collection of licensed home decor products.  

Nancy was selected as a 2020 Style Spotter for the High Point Home Furnishing’s Market where she will be reporting on markets trends through video, print and digital platforms throughout 2020.  When not at home, she travels the world extensively speaking to industry professionals about the latest lifestyle trends and tracking market trends. 


 Wesley Moon is interested and well-versed in all periods of design and decoration, believing that a subtle mix is what makes a home well-rounded and sophisticated. After growing up in his mother’s design office, he went on to study architecture at Georgia Tech and then received a bachelor’s degree in interior design before moving to New York from his native Atlanta. After a decade of working with two premier design firms in Manhattan, as well as developing residential communities with Martha Stewart, he opened Wesley Moon, Inc. in 2008.

His project list includes New York apartments and townhouses, homes from Greenwich, CT to Montecito, CA, beach houses in the Hamptons, Fire Island, and south FL, and even a 125-foot motor yacht. He knows a client’s happiness is the cornerstone of his referral-based business; where he and his staff place equal importance on making beautiful rooms and on providing excellent client service. The adoration he feels for what he does reveals itself in every step of the collaborative and creative process, resulting in homes clients love.


Charles Pavarini’s decades of experience, former career in theater, and extraordinary creativity have made him a trend-setting Interior Designer, fluent in many design styles. Recognized by the design community for both Residential and Commercial Architectural Interior Design, his work is consistently highlighted with intricate lighting design elements and brilliant technological innovation. 

His design sensibility typically incorporates an International style based in Classicism and a theatrical component in less-than typical ways. His firm, Pavarini Design, recipient of 33 design industry awards including an Interior Design B.O.Y. Award, a LUMEN Award, and IFDA’s Circle of Excellence Award, confirms his influence and leadership within the Interior Design Profession.


Amy L. Figueroa is an Architectural & Design Representative and Brand Ambassador for Benjamin Moore, North America’s favorite paint, color and coatings brand.
