The next three weeks are a busy time, with two key markets coming up – High Point Market and the WestEdge Design Fair. You know what that means – lots of design inspiration, panel discussions, parties etc. and I wanted to give you the heads up on what’s going on and where we’ll be so that we can connect.
WestEdge Design Fair Webinar with Ivy
First off is our webinar with Troy Hanson of WestEdge Design Fair and Reisa Elden of Ivy. On Wednesday, Oct. 3 we’ll be chatting all about WestEdge. I’ve attended WestEdge for the past 5 years both as a designer/attendee and as an exhibitor and both experiences are equally as exhilarating.
High Point Market
High Point Market is taking place in High Point, North Carolina October 13-18, and as anyone who has ever attended, can tell you that it is a crazy time – early mornings, late nights, lots of coffee…and an occasional cocktail or two at the evening progresses.
High Point Market Insider’s Tour
For the 3rd market in a row, I’ll be leading a one-day tour for designers new to High Point on the first day of Market. This Market I have 15 fabulous designers from all across the country joining me and I couldn’t be more excited. We currently are filled to capacity but if you’d like to put yourself on the wait list in case
Showhouse in a Showroom at Alden Parkes
I’ll be flying out several days early to set up for the first ever “Showhouse in a Showroom” taking place in the Alden Parkes Showroom. Eight designers from around the country were selected to take part in this exciting new concept, a true collaboration between designers and manufacturers. The eight designers participating are: Billy Ceglia, Kara Cox, Cynthia Ferguson, Shay Geyer, Jeanine Hayes and Bryan Mason, Kimberly Perron, and yours truly,
In conjunction with Showhouse in a Showroom, I’ll be taking part in a panel discussion at the Alden Parkes Showroom moderated by Jane Dagmi, Editor in Chief of Designers Today
Design Panel: Is Niching Critical for Business?
Showhouse in a Showroom Launch Party
In true High Point Market fashion, after the design panel there will be a launch party…because we all know that the High Point Market motto is to “work hard, party hard” And so we will.
Design Panel: Get Showhouse Ready
I’ll be chatting with my friend, Christopher Kennedy on getting Showhouse ready. As you know, Christopher produces the Christopher Kennedy Compound during Modernism Week in Palm Springs every February. I have been involved with designing rooms for the Pasadena Showcase House for the past few years. We both have different experiences and will be sharing what we’ve learned and best practices for those considering participating in a show house.
Once I return from High Point Market, I’ll be turning around and diving deep into everything WestEdge Design Fair, which will take place October 18-21 at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.
I hope you can attend at least one of the events during the month of October! If you do, please stop by and say hello!
