Design Connecticut

Marianne Howaston, CEO Letter SFCandGOur state is fairly bursting with design buildings and design communities these days, which means that you, dear readers, and your designers and architects need not venture beyond our borders for the best in furniture, fabrics, tile or stone.

Last year, CTC&G was the presenting partner for the debut of the Stamford Waterside Design District (SWDD), an enclave of fabulous Stamford showrooms, for its first annual Market Day. Some 600 designers were wined and dined, and signed up for panels, seminars and high profile speakers throughout the day. This year’s Market Day takes place on March 23. For more information, go to

Over at the Wakefield Design Center, also in Stamford, a cornucopia of manufacturers are represented under one roof. The more than 10,000-square-foot showroom that spans two full floors mounts continuous high profile events throughout the year.

Elsewhere in Fairfield County, brand-new communities of design are springing up in Westport’s Sconset Square area and Railroad Place, while the already-established Greenwich design district on Putnam and Greenwich Avenues has some exciting new additions. All this recent activity reflects Connecticut’s long-standing demand for great design and assures that we have a plethora of resources at our own doorstep. I look forward to exploring them all!marianne-signatureCEO-Composite
