Design & More Design
I have just returned from the Design Leadership Summit in Los Angeles where the crème de la crème of the design industry met to share ideas, learn and network. Designers in attendance came from across the country—from New York’s Ken Gemes, whose room at the Designer Showhouse on the Green in Fairfield graced the cover of CTC&G October, to San Francisco’s fabulous Suzanne Tucker, who was presented with the Design Leadership Award. Peter Sallick, founder of the Design Leadership Network, fulfilled his promise to include an educational component by theming the conference the “Master Class” and providing illuminating speeches and breakout sessions. The wow factor was satisfied by the keynote from Frank Gehry, delivered in one of his great architectural triumphs—the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Also present were John Edelman and John McPhee of Design Within Reach, and I am delighted to announce that we have added DWR to our C&G Shop the Look™ program. As we looked back through our coverage of homes in all of our areas, we were struck by the huge amount of DWR pieces represented. Now you can buy them from our pages with a click!
