Description


FASHION x FUNCTION
Designing for Real Life & Today’s Clientele

The rule says that form should always follow function. Today, incorporating designs and products that are purposeful, flexible, versatile & durable enough to cope with life’s messes & rollercoasters doesn’t mean you have to simultaneously compromise exquisite style & taste.

Design’s most trusted brands, manufacturers, and their collaborators have recognized the demand for inspired, visually stimulating spaces that keep the realities of clients’ lifestyles, and, their expectations, top of mind.

At DCOTA Fall Market 2018, refresh your client-ready arsenal of applicable answers & solutions with an up-close look at the latest scope of dynamic products & resources available this season. Hear from industry leaders & innovators for their insights on achieving success in our ever-evolving design world, and take advantage of this chance to attend 3 CEU classes, explore 5 new showrooms, and grow your industry network.
