Today in The Lounge we continue our coverage of High Point Spring Market 2018, kicking-off the episode with highlights from The Nick May Morning Show co-hosted by Dixie Willard and Rachel Moriarty of Design+Style Podcast to interview Lindsay Paoli of Design Manager, Shayla Copas of Shayla Copas Interiors, and Holly Hollingswoth Phillips, Florence Broadhurst Brand Ambassador/owner of The English Room and Florence. Find the live video on our Facebook Page.
Next, Nick facilitates a panel called “Navigating the Turmoil of Industry Consolidation” — inspired in part by the controversial acquisition of IvyMark by Houzz — but the panel becomes a broader discussion about what’s going on in the industry and how some designers are adapting their business models. Panelists are Cheryl Kees Clendenon of In Detail Designers; Laura Thurman of Thurman Design Studio; Neil Mackenzie from Universal Furniture; Rebecca Gins of Perigold; and Shawn Hughes of Steelyard.
Enjoy, and stay tuned this week for the rest of our HPMKT coverage!
