Newest feature as seen in the May issue of BizNow Magazine. They shared our viewpoint about our learning design process at IDTSD of collaboration, in combining the “form” of chairs with the “fashion” of apparel. BizNow magazine articulated our design philosophies and concept so well, their visually presented it with style in the page layout and photo selections.

January was a great time to take a break to attend a major design marker in a warmer climate, while our state was experiencing record below zero temperatures. Along with experiencing cutting edge interior furnishings at the World Market Center, we had the opportunity to many attend seminars & presentations from leading designers, staging stylists and trend forecasters.
Among some those design leaders and Icons we met were Alexa Hampton, President & Designer of Mark Hampton; and Christina Lemieux, DwellStudio Founder & Creative Director (as seen in photo with our group).
