It Happened In Vegas…

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 5.34.02 PMBetween Design Camp and KBIS, we had a busy week at the World Market Center in Las Vegas! Camp kicked off with a beautiful vegetarian brunch in the Jaipur Rugs showroom. After a crazy day, shopping and insta-hunting around market, campers reconvened for a seminar from Lori and Kelli. Then camp concluded with a cocktail party at the Natuzzi showroom where campers had a chance to mix and mingle with fellow designers and vendors from around market.

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 5.34.15 PMDirectly following camp was Kelli’s off-the-hook launch party for her new Tile Bar tile line– a huge hit. KBIS was full of beautiful creative innovations in the kitchen and bath design industry.

That’s a Wrap on Atlanta!

Another Design Camp comes to an end — Design Camp, Atlanta was one of our largest and most inspiring camps yet! We packed the theater at Americas Mart full of 600+ talented interior designers, eager to learn and impact the entire interior design community. These designers had the opportunity to learn from industry tastemakers Suzanne Kasler and Peter Zakas of Z Space Design, whose designs reach far beyond their distinctive aesthetics, stimulating creativity in everyone they come in contact with. Designers also benefitted from the always hilarious, resident Design Camp Deadhead and wine connoisseur, Adam Japko, whose expertise in online marketing is transferrable to just about every profession.

Click on the Thumbnails below to enlarge the images from #DesignCampATL!

Camp began with a social media scavenger hunt through America Mart’s premier showrooms. Campers mugged for the camera in Natuzzi’s leather recliners, which multiple campers deemed ‘the most comfortable chair ever.’ They threw imaginary tea parties in Fermob’s showroom and fell in love with Fermob’s Kintbury collection — They’re the absolute cutest outdoor chairs we’ve ever seen, perfect for a garden party! Campers gawked at gorgeous new collections in Jaipur Rugs, Currey and Company, Emporium Home, Noir, Europe2You, Leftbank Art, and more! We spotted some of our market favorites in Noir, Worlds Away, Fermob, and Jaipur.

Suzanne Kasler mingled with campers at her exclusive Design Camp booksigning in the Jaipur Rugs showroom. Her book Timeless Style features glossy, full-page images that truly transport you into her elegant imagination.

And what would camp be without a couple of cocktails? In typical Design Camp fashion, camp concluded with a cocktail party– We all knew Currey and Company knew how to design top-notch lighting and furniture, but did you know they also know how to go all-out hosting a party?

So here’s some bad news and good news: The bad news is; Atlanta Camp is over. The good news is; Vegas Camp is coming up on January 19th and there is still time to register online!  Stay tuned for more updates about Vegas and other future Camp endeavors. We have LOTS in the works that we cannot wait to share with you guys!

Wecora, The Professional’s Pinterest

Our friends at Wecora took a year’s worth of data and reviewed how designers were working and why their inspiration boards looked the way they did. What they realized was, it was all about decisions. So, they created a digital platform which encourages rapid decision making and saves a ton of time!

id_board_1-86e3c54737205f958511cee807576f20 After assembling a board, your clients can vote and comment directly on what you’re showing them, eliminating any miscommunication.

 Keep in mind that Wecora is not just another presentation tool.  There are tons of competent presentation tools out there but this particular one is focused on time saving and driving projects forward.

Oh and how could we forget to mention…it’s FREE!  There are Pro and Team accounts available, which we absolutely recommend.  But why not start with a free one? For a limited time, you can get a Promo Code just for signing up which can be used for 20% off the regular monthly price forever!

Wecora is also an important marketing tool for you. Wecora’s online platform promotes your brand and custom logo on all points of client interaction, as opposed to a number of other self-promtional tools out there. Wecora saves you time and makes you money faster by making decisions visual – like a Professional Pinterest account that you are in control of!

Neo Noir

It’s no secret that the Noir CFC showroom is always a stunner at market. We LOVE their bold punk-rock pieces. If you’re not already familiar with the LA-based furniture manufacturer, imagine Mick Jagger (in his prime) sprawled across a black leather couch backstage at the Grammy’s — That’s the Noir aesthetic.

You can take a digital tour of the High Point showroom here.

But when it comes to the practical use of Noir furniture in residential interior designs, we are always shocked to see just how bright noir can be!

Screen Shot 2014-12-28 at 2.52.07 PM

 

 

Noir has been featured in all of our favorite design magazines from Traditional Home to Coastal Living, and its almost always in a big bright country kitchen, or boho chic beach house. The versatility of this furniture continues to surprise us!
