Day three and the last day of Kravet’s Blogfest 2011. I’m feeling it and by now I am learning to call a cab with more confidence, use the subway (THANK YOU HOP STOP) and I’m ready to take on the last day of Blogfest. This was my favorite day of the three…but meeting Barbara Barry was actually the best moment!
We were able to visit Kravet & Lee Jofa’s design studio and it was ahhhhmazing. The walls were lined with the latest fabrics and stopping by each area of the studio to see how the world of Kravet/Lee Jofa worked was beyond informative. With at least 18 months as the standard time frame to develop and launch new products, there were tons of sneak peeks around the studio. Sorry, no pics because everything has to be kept under wraps for now. Color design, pattern development, designer collaborations, new rugs, showroom design and sampling were just a few of the everyday events that we were able to get a closer look at.
My favorite part of the tour was being able to see the latest introductions from Kelly Wearstler. Tons of updates to her current best sellers and a few new additions too!
We capped off the day and the week with a Sweet Endings party at 1st dibs showroom located in the NYC Design Center after touring a few of our favorite showrooms!
I loved the view of this rooftop garden from the 1st dibs showroom too, very New York!
Sweet Treats at the 1st dibs party!!!
And finally, the special guest of the evening Thom Filicia started making the rounds. I was so excited to meet him after being a fan of his for so long. What a chatter he is, such a pleasure to meet him in person! THANK YOU BLOGFEST 2011!
