Connected Virtual Webinar Series
This July, we bring Connected webinar series to the home furnishings industry.

In a new series of virtual panels starting next Tuesday, Furniture, Lighting & Decor shares insights from retailers and interior designers on the state of the industry and the current furniture, lighting and decor challenges and trends across the home furnishings industry in this new series of seminars. First, retailers and designers share their insights in these categories, and then home furnishings suppliers have an opportunity to share how they are addressing these topics as well. Stay tuned for more details and sign up at the registration links below. Tuesdays in July at 2:00 PM ET. In conjunction with Las Vegas Market Center and International Market Centers. 

Furniture: How Might COVID change sourcing for designers and retailers?

Furniture, Lighting & Decor asks home furnishings retailers and designers how they anticipate sourcing furniture in the coming months, following a global pandemic and other unrest. Will Made in America become even more important and why? Will quick-turnaround from stocked warehouses matter more? What do retailers/designers anticipate their customers will be looking for? And how can their furniture suppliers — domestic and imports — assure them that stock will be ready when they are.

Panelists: Shayla Copas, Shayla Copas Interiors; Michael Baty, Chestnut Hall; Tanna Edler, Tanna by Design; Lisa McDennon; Nuance Home

Moderated by Diane Falvey, Editor-in-Chief, Furniture, Lighting & Decor 

Sponsored by Currey & Company, and Universal Furniture

Decor: The Power of Pop

Consumers may tend toward the neutrals in big home design purchases. But the pillows, a wallpaper pattern as an accent, beautiful area rugs, mirrors, artwork and more. That’s where personalities and design can shine. How do designers and retailers choose the accessories that elevate their merchandising and client’s homes? What do they look for? How do you know a piece will have staying power? And where do you suggest clients/customers make the spendy choices?

Panelists: Kristi Hopper, Kristi Hopper Designs; Teddie and Courtney Garrigan, Coco and Dash; Patti Allen and Stephanie James, Allen & James. Moderator: Diane Falvey, EIC, Furniture, Lighting & Decor

Lighting: It’s Technical

Lighting decisions are about more than just design. Lighting can impact consumer health and well being; it can make or break a home environment; and it paves the way in smart home technology. It can also be pretty permanent. What do consumers, designers and builders need to know before installing those fixed fixtures?

Retailers share their strategies for educating their customers on the nuance of lighting technology — from LED to dimming technologies to Smart Home and more. What do consumers need to know, how do retailers educate their staffs, and how can suppliers support these efforts?
