In the Field: Reports from the World's Design Events

In the Field: Reports from the World's Design Events

Dec 30, 2011

Every year, Apartment Therapy editors and contributors attend events around the globe to keep an eye on the trends, products and designers that are helping to define interior style at that precise moment in time. The things we see and people we meet on these outings help us to understand, write about and source great design year-round; it's the ultimate "continuing education" on what's coming next. We hit the road or the friendly skies, we walk the aisles of the shows, we talk to the creators, we take a gazillion photos and then, share highlights with all of you...
