Why Attend?

Eclectic Interior Design

The Resource Home Show is your chance to meet and learn from local tradespeople in nearly every home-industry field.

Whether you are interested in restoring the original architectural details on your older home, considering a completely modern renovation, in the market for an interior designer whose taste matches your own, or simply looking to meet a good plumber, this is the show for you.

We also give you the chance to learn from these skilled experts through conversation and DIY demonstrations.

Proceeds from the 2021 show will go to support Project ALS, which identifies and funds the most promising scientific and medical research that will lead to the first effective treatments and a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.


DIY Demonstrations

For some, being a homeowner means “doing it yourself” instead of hiring a professional. We call it “Doable DIY.” Sure, it requires a bit of education, but we believe a demonstration with an expert can enable you to take on a project that simultaneously empowers you and beautifies your home.

That’s why our show has a full slate of demonstrations from our exhibitors and partners. If you are interested in sharing your unique skills in 2021, please email carla.labianca@gmail.com and ldanbrot@gmail.com.


The Venue

The Resource Home Show takes place at The Woodland, a Maplewood staple that hosts many local events.

Embodying the architecture of the 1920’s and 1930’s, which is characteristic of the New York City bedroom communities of New Jersey, the Woodland perfectly reflects the spirit of appreciation for older homes that is at the essence of the Resource Home Show.

  • 5,000 square feet of open space (See the floorplan)
  • Hardwood floor
  • Spectacular 40-foot-high barreled ceiling
  • Located in the heart of Maplewood Village
  • Walking distance to Midtown Direct NYC trains, eateries & retail

Do the producers of the Resource Home Show endorse the Exhibitors?
