Networking opportunities were amazing...met Gary Inman of Glave and Holmes who is creating some beautiful furniture designs and has become a "style spotter" extraordinaire. Visited with Jamie Schactel who created COUEF. They had a divine space at Inter Hall and a new globally-sourced line of ottomans, tables and chairs that are chic and modern. Met Sarah Stroh, editor of Rug News and Design, who organized a lovely breakfast billed as the Women's Rug Roundtable...I was with my "tribe" as we chatted about global issues surrounding the rug industry. Most of my time was spent "manning" the booth and meeting interior designers who were on the hunt for the latest and greatest resources for their projects.
It was so exciting and fun to be at the center of the home furnishings industry. I can't thank my husband, Thom, enough for all of his support and hard work in making this happen. I couldn't have done it without him! xxxoooo
