Disher, Hamrick & Myers is proud to announce we are the presenting sponsor for the 2024 Charleston Symphony Orchestra League (CSOL) Designer Showhouse, as the beloved annual event returns for the first time in 4 years. This exciting partnership between CSOL and DHM highlights our shared commitment to the arts and the vibrant cultural scene in Charleston. We hope locals and visitors alike will take this unique opportunity to explore a stunningly-designed historic home while supporting a worthy cause.
The Designer Showhouse showcases the talents of local designers and raises vital funds to support the Charleston Symphony Orchestra League’s mission. The CSOL plays a pivotal role in promoting and supporting the Charleston Symphony Orchestra (CSO) and its educational programs, ensuring that music remains an integral part of our community.
This year’s Designer Showhouse takes place at the John Rudolph Switzer House at 6 Montagu Street in historic downtown Charleston. The 1803 double house is one of several in the Harleston Village neighborhood to be lovingly restored by the current owner. Previously divided into apartments, it’s being returned to its original intent as a single-family home. The renovation includes restoring the historic part of the house while adding a 3-story contemporary wing to the back. The grounds and gardens will also be newly landscaped.
The event kicks off February 4th with a “Blue Jeans and Blueprints Bare Boards” party that will give attendees a chance to see the home before it begins its transformation and meet with designers, architects, builder, and landscapers. Then, from March 13 to April 13, visitors can tour the home and experience the creativity and talent of 14 local interior designers. There will also be a popup shop for those looking to take some inspiration home. In addition to the opening night celebration on March 12, special events include an evening of champagne and songs, a St. Patrick’s Day garden party, a Gullah brunch, afternoon tea, and supper club.

DHM is proud to support such initiatives within historic downtown Charleston.”
