Resource Home Show

The Resource Home Show returns to Maplewood on Sunday, Nov. 10 to connect regional homeowners and home design enthusiasts with an even more extensive and eclectic arsenal of home improvement professionals.


The trade show, now in its second year, will be hosted at The Woodland historic mansion in Maplewood Village on Nov. 10 from 1-4 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance online at or $15 at the door. The Resource Home Show is organized by local Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage real estate agents, Carla Labianca and Lisa Danbrot, who also manage Inhabit Your Home, a blog for the stylish and functional home.


Proceeds from the Resource Home Show will benefit Isaiah House shelter in East Orange. Offering comfort and hope to thousands since 1988, Isaiah House aims “to reduce the prevalence of homelessness, hunger, and unemployment throughout Essex County...,” while working diligently to keep the family unit of its residents intact.


“A home is both a material construct and the way we experience the space inside. The vision of the show is to represent both realms. So, we try to cast a wide net with exhibitors — from experts in foundational, safety and energy systems, to specialists in niche skills, through creative aesthetic fields, and all points in between,” said Danbrot.


The Resource Home Show, unique among trade shows in the region, brings a wide array of home resources together under one roof. The event will feature talented tradespeople and independent makers spanning a cross-section of fields, including interior design, architecture, restoration, home maintenance, sustainable landscaping and much more. It will engage visitors through creative displays, educational presentations, and, new this year, pop-up shops for holiday shopping. From fancy to functional, from decorative to utilitarian, if it is for home, it will likely be on display at the second annual Resource Home Show.

“Online hubs like and community Facebook pages are wonderful to find photos, get recommendations, and share experiences, but we often thought, ‘What if we could give our community and clients a one-stop place to meet, to actually have a face-to-face conversation with some of these very talented professionals?’ And the Show was born!” said Labianca.


This year’s 48 participants, some returning, include: The Aesthetic Engineers, Aimee Herring Ryan of, All County Sewer and Drain, BDH Interiors, Boutique Closets and Cabinetry LLC, California Closets, Castle Windows, Clawson Architects, Clawson Cabinets, Design NJ Magazine, Dirt Hacker Sustainable Landscapes, Dove Design Studio, The Framing Mill, The General Store Cooperative, GPR One Call, Gutter Helmet, Idea Space, Infinite Comfort, The Inspired Garden, IrieDesign Home Organizing, Jason Geary of U.S. Bank, Java’s Compost, Jesse Jade Painting, Karen B Wolf Interiors, Cat Fisher of Kitchen À La Mode, KRA Insurance Agency, Lemon Grass Interior Architecture, The Maplewood Historic Preservation Commission, Megan Pisano Design, Nest Studio, Palmer’s Sweetery, Ricciardi Brothers, SPACES by Hollie Velten, Studio 1200, Studio J, Tile Design Inspirations, Victory Home Remodeling, Vision Solar, Walden Interiors, Who We Use, and Wildling Sustainable Goods.

Rene Clawson of Clawson Architects and Clawson Cabinets, a returning exhibitor said, “We are so excited to be a part of this wonderful show for the second year in a row. The opportunities for homeowners to learn from experts in the field and connect with local professionals and vendors is unmatched in the area.” The team at Clawson Architects has over 600 built projects in the metro area, and they bring the same award-winning design sense to their custom cabinetry business, Clawson Cabinets.

A special highlight of the event is the presentations. They include “Antique Window Repair” with Paul Lewis of 2GFN, “Transforming Space with Indoor Botanicals” with Laura Janney of The Inspired Garden, “Home Maintenance 101” with Ernie Borsellino of All-Pro Home Inspections, “Curate, Don’t Decorate” with Sarah Gee of Sarah Gee Interiors and Amy Hughes of Maplewood Mercantile, “Top 10 Solutions Every Homeowner Needs to Make Their House Greener, Healthier and More Beautiful” panel discussion and informational “speed-dating” with Neil Chambers of Chambers Design, “The Perch Home Shelfie Station” by Michele Bessey of Perch Home, and “5 Things to Know About Buying Art” by Minus Space Art Services.
