“We love to shake things up, for our retailers and designers,” says Alden Parkes CEO, Lynne McArdle. “We wanted to showcase how our products and designs can work in many different rooms and styles, so we created a unique and exclusive event that will highlight each designer’s individual style. We’re big fans of the many stunning showhouses that are produced in the design community, and we thought this would be a fun and exciting way to transform our showroom for the fall market.”

Showhouse in a Showroom kicks off on Thursday Oct. 11 and runs till Wednesday, October 17. On Saturday, October 13th at 2 PM, I will be moderating a panel at Alden Parkes with these 8 designers, and the topic is niching your design biz.  Following the conversation, there will be a reception from 3 - 5 pm with all of  the designers will be on hand to guide us through their rooms.
