Part of being a good designer is knowing what is going on in the world of interior design.  That is a given, hands down.  The biggest show in the country (and I have been told – the world) is the International Furniture and Accessory Market in High Point, North Carolina.  I have gone there since I was a kid…they don’t even let kids in anymore (no, it wasn’t because of me!).  At that age, whether I wanted to be there of not, I absorbed an amazing amount of information.  Watching trends come and go, colors, styles, materials….you can learn a lot in 20 years including the fact that you had better have some seriously comfortable shoes (the ONLY time I will sacrifice style).

The Kansas City Star wanted to know what we found.  I was happy to report to the fabulous Stacy Downs for the Star’s amazing House + Home section…
