Hello from Brooklyn!
At the beginning of February, I attended the NYNow trade show to view new product in furnishings and accessories. Next month, I'll attend the Architectural Digest Show for new concepts in kitchens and baths, followed by the High Point Furniture Market in April. Whew! Lots to see and process.
I recently read that most consumers hate furniture shopping. Walking into a furniture store raises your stress level. Shoppers said there was too much selection and too many decisions to make. Which size? This color? While most stores now offer 'free' interior design services, their main job is to sell you more furniture. Nothing is 'free' and conformity is the prevailing standard. Internet shopping? Even more confusing. Scale and proportion are impossible to predict. The colors look perfect on your screen and arrive looking completely different. Returns are both a hassle and expensive. Have you ever had to carry a rug to UPS for a return?
If you want a different experience, I will customize a design concept specific to you and your lifestyle. Stress free, fun and no overwhelm. Another great experience ... this chair! It's on display at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum. Called the Heart Cone chair it was designed in 1959 by Vernon Panton and manufactured by Vitra AG. An amazing red. Isn't it fun?
