Design Today Winter 2014 is here!
December 18, 2014,
In the second issue of Design Today, a quarterly B2B digital magazine for interior designers produced by Progressive Business Media, designers, as well as furniture industry retailers and manufacturers, are talking about many of the subjects that impact your business. (Click to read.)
On the product side, The Essentials—also known as a variety of home furnishings products in the Oh So Good, Betters Box and Quest for Best categories—gives you a look at some of the recent market introductions suppliers are offering, underscoring how the lines between price points can be blurred through design.
In The Mix, designers and manufacturers Baker and Bassett Furniture talk about what works well and what doesn’t in a sometimes difficult professional relationship. Retail Showcase adds another voice to the discussion, underscoring the awareness that every stage of the product-to-home process benefits from a designer’s input.
Industry veteran Mary Knackstedt talks about the importance of recognizing and celebrating genius. At the other end of the career spectrum, Rachael Bozsik, who describes herself as an entrepreneurship major, shares her experience of visiting High Point Market as a college design student and highlights some of the products that she, part of the sought-after Millennial demographic, found appealing.
Mary Knackstedt writes, “Clients today are buying the stories behind the product.” The winter issue of Design Today includes quite a few of those stories—take a look here.
