First Annual Market Day, Washington Design Center

by Lisa, March 4, 2016

We do love our design field trips.  This week we visited the Washington Design Center for their first annual Market Day.   Speakers, book signings, design celebrities and of course, free food and drinks!  So much to get our design juices flowing.  It was like a mini version of High Point — showrooms full of design inspiration but no need to pack up the pickup and head south (and significantly less walking).
