This time of year for interior designers is like tax season for accountants. I have several homes that need to be ready for Thanksgiving and even more clients that have installations and furniture deliveries before Christmas and Hanukkah. Although crazy busy, it is crazy fun and with the holidays just a few weeks away its time to take stock of what I need for entertaining, lets get started.
One of the best parts about my job as a professional designer is that I get to shop for my clients everyday. Before I had my kids I taught Interior Design at the college level for a brief period and would joke with students that you have to love shopping to be successful at this career but it is actually true. You need to be able to seek out and find that latest trend or discover that tried and true classic piece of furniture that suits your clients needs perfectly. This means constant research and constant shopping, love it! Today I am sharing a fabulous find that I stumbled upon working on a recent project where I needed to specify fabric for pillows that would pull the entire room together. This fabric had to be unique in material, design and origin because it would not only complete the design but it would become a conversational piece for my clients to share with their guests.
