Industry: Launching a Furniture Brand
Today in The Lounge, I am joined by two great friends: Phyllis Harbinger and Bruce Macdonald. Because this is our monthly talk with Phyllis, you know we have a specific topic to discus, and today we talk about what to do when you are asked: “Can I pick your brain?” As experts, people will always want free information, but as interior designers, what should you do?
Then I talk to my friend Bruce Macdonald. I met Bruce earlier this year at the Design Bloggers Conference, and we just keep meeting up at different interior design events across the country. Bruce has an extensive history in marketing, retail, and building brands, and has decided that it is time to build his own: Bruce Andrews Designs, a bespoke furniture company focused on American made, had crafted, artisinal furniture.
