Sometimes last minute is the best way to plan. With all of the usual demands plus the Holiday ones, December is a difficult month to get out for lunch. But I was so glad to accept an invitation from Tui Lifestyle to meet industry others while dining on fine fare and learning more about what Tui can offer to our firm and our clients. How nice is that? I was impressed by their mostly 'in stock' approach to very stylish interiors and what is not in stock, the Tui team can quickly accommodate. So style, talented and friendly staff, innovative products -- and an attractive price point! Quelle surprise! I loved much of what I saw but really connected with the likes of their bubble chandelier. Check in with Erik and his team for fabulous and fashionable furnishings, without the sticker shock. Thanks to Sharon and the Luxe + Interiors team for co-sponsoring such a lovely event.

Split Rock attended a wonderfully hosted event by Luxe Interiors + Design. The event was held at the Material ConneXion Library which is the world's largest resource for advanced, innovative and sustainable materials and processes. The Library serves industries and disciplines including architecture, fashion, interior design, manufacturing and packaging, just to name a few. Who knew this resource was available right here in New York? Absolutely fascinating and a really fun time. http://www.materialconnexion.com/
Every year, we rarely miss the International Builders’ Show (IBS) which is held in either Orlando or Las Vegas, alternating each year. Either location is fine for us during the cold month of February in the northeast! It is the housing industry’s largest annual trade show and exhibition where the most cutting-edge designs, technologies, and products can be seen, touched and demonstrated. We are always excited to see what our favorite vendors such as Duravit, Thermador and Kohler are introducing. We got to spend time with our friends at Advantage Lumber and Knauf and catch up on the latest evolutions in solar power products. Soon we will be able to include solar solutions that are cost effective and productive as a general offering to our clients. A new vendor we were particularly happy to meet is Vintage Specialies Inc. For a reasonable price, they can produce highly custom doors that look vintage but well preserved in any species with endless design possibilities.
