Trip to DCOTA, Winter Market 2015

Last week our design team took a little road trip to Dania Beach for project sourcing and Winter Market 2015 at the Design Center of the Americas. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, DCOTA is one of the world’s largest design campuses, offering hundreds of thousands of square feet of furniture, fabric, kitchen, plumbing, and lighting showrooms to the interior design trade. During this week Winter Market was held, showcasing new product introductions, speakers, and other events. We had a successful (and exhausting!) couple of days sourcing products for current clients, updating our studio library for future projects, discovering new sources and opening new accounts, and gathering creative inspiration.

Cheers! Angela, Pablo, and Katie enjoying the keynote lunch reception at Donghia showroom on Day 1
