Summary: Building for The Stars is an episodic reality television show based in Upsate, NY and features the talents of Luxury Furniture Designer Jonathan Sweet. Jonathan Sweet, of Neil & Sweet Interiors, brings his 20+ years of Modern Adirondack and Rustic Industrial Furniture/Interior design to projects which are filmed from the process of discovery with a celebrity to final delivery or installation. The show is not only entertaining but also serves to educate and inspire design concepts and ideas for our viewers while giving back to the community through charitable fundraisers and events.
The Artist: In the show we incorporate Jonathan Sweet’s work with wood, metal and steel fabricators, leather craftsman and wood burning artists to produce truly one of a kind furniture and interiors for A, B and C list celebrities. Jonathan’s work has been featured on the likes of Adirondack Living TV, HGTV and numerous publications. His unique ability to hand craft breathtaking furniture using exclusive wood species like Cherry, Maple, Mahogany and Walnut are just the beginning of the process. Jonathan has designed and built for clients using found objects, reclaimed woods, antique elements, stone and leather. It is the process of discovery and translating that into a spectacular one of a kind piece of furniture that serves to educate and inspire the viewer. This unique insight provides a look into celebrities design interests and home or office decor.
Music: Building for The Stars will host a series of concerts and music festivals to both promote the show and generate additional revenue and footage. Because the show is predicated on working with celebrities, musicians will be involved in our builds. The concerts will serve to both create awareness of our show while also providing additional revenue streams through ticket and merchandise sales. Other benefits include capturing behind the scenes footage with musicians and filming on stage reveals of furniture in front of crowds excited to be part of the TV show and music.
Charitable Efforts: Being involved with the TV show means we have a platform to give back. Building for The Stars will organize scenarios with Children and Fans to have an opportunity to meet celebrities or receive monetary contributions for charities. It is a mission of the show to support local arts in schools and we will actively seek opportunities to support struggling communities with the necessary means to further education in these areas. In addition to supporting children in the arts, we will be involved in several capacities with organizations that bring about positive change in small communities all around the United States.
