Roll up the Shades....Here comes Hunter Douglas
Well I seem to be going to and writing about many Design Events these days. It is one of the nicest parts of my job. You get to see all your colleagues which is important for those of us who work alone in our own business. You really need that time to network and see what's happening out there and just talk!
There is usually some great refreshments offered at these events which may be just why my clothes are a little snug this spring! I have no willpower when faced with great hors d'oeuvres and sweets. Oh well I will just have to do more exercise.
It has been joked that we just love to go to these events to eat, drink and have fun. Well we do that, but it really is educational - what better way to keep up with with trends and find out what is "new" out there so we can pass on this information to our clients.
Last week I attended a wonderful event hosted by Hunter Douglas and co-ordinated by The Decorating Centre at the Casablanca Inn in Grimsby. We were treated to dinner and as well as great desserts. The presentation put on by Hunter Douglas was very informative and well done. I believe we all walked away from this event with much more knowledge on window coverings and all the new enhancements made to the Hunter Douglas product lines.
