On September 18th, I will be joining fellow design community friends for a day of panel conversations and product launches at 200 Lex's What's New What's Next event. I am moderating a panel of rising interior design talent at Lexington Home Brands, discussing the business of design. What it is really like to start your own firm? Sharing practical advice and know-how, young traditional interior designers Lindsey Lane and Eddie Lee will share their experiences and insights. Be sure to come by the New York Design Center's 2nd floor showroom, suite 212 at 3:15pm to join us for the conversation, vote for your favorite designer-created vignette, enter for a chance to win a $500 gift card to Bergdorf Goodman and stay for enticing bites from Artisan Restaurant. If you are thinking about going out on your own and launching a design business, you won't want to miss what these one's to watch have to say.
