poster for "In Stock: Why is American Design Such a Hard Sell?" Talk

This event has ended.

Leading retailers on the front lines of contemporary furniture discuss with Surface Editor-in-Chief Dan Rubinstein the seller's perspective on American design. How can designers get noticed by these career-making venues? What are they looking for, and what mistakes can local talent avoid? From the nuts and bolts of cost, quality, and manufacturing to the tastes and tendencies of the U.S. public, these tastemakers will reveal their often under-appreciated opinions in a roundtable format followed by an open Q&A. Panelists include: New York's Jamie Gray (Matter), Siamak Hakakian (DDC), and LA's Stefan Lawrence (Twentieth, LA). www.surfacemag.com

"In Stock: Why is American design such a hard sell?" is part of the series, "The Home Front: American Furniture Now."
