The Interior Design industry is an endless renaissance of
innovation. There’s a constant reinvention and manipulation of materials that
delight and surprise the senses. So at January 30th’s WINTERMARKET @
DCOTA, it was no surprise that there were 35 programs presented by various
showrooms that left my head happily spinning.

The keynote panel was hosted by Joy Longhino of “Modern

The newest Thomas Pheasant collection for Baker had my heart
Brunschwig & Fils Le Jardin Chinois fulfilled my fascination
of the far east with a collection reflecting its lifestyles, imagery, crafts,

the fabrics, lighting, furniture, and accessories. I found something for every
one of my clients whatever their budget.
I LOVE MY JOB!
