Haute Design Network Partners Talk Interior Design During Quarantine - May 1, 2020

WEBINAR HIGHLIGHTS _____ CHRIS GODDARD: "When I started my company (in Arkansas) 30 years ago, there was not much out there as far as design. We were removed from everything. I saw a need and a demand for luxury and more high-end items. I found that the more you talk people and educate items, the more perceptive they were to them." _____ CARI GIANNOULIA: "(On advice to young designers coming up) You can't keep looking at Instagram and think you're going to learn about design. Soak it in by learning from a professional... Work has picked up a little bit. I think it's because people are sitting at home now and thinking of projects that they hadn't gotten to yet. Our furniture makers and vendors are pretty much shut down, so that has been a challenge, but we are in the planning phases, and then we will get to the actual work once we can get back to factories and on sites." _____ ODALYS HERNANDEZ: "Vendors are still sending out samples, so I have sent these to clients. Since everything may be lifted a little bit this (coming) week in South Florida, we can start doing certain things. I'm going to go to a client's house with mask and gloves to take photos to start selecting her accessories. We have to get back to it somehow, little by little." _____ GISELLE LOOR-SUGERMAN: "We moved our offices (recently) which was challenging. We tried to take as many precautions as possible, wearing our masks. We also didn't have a lot of people helping us. It was us doing it because we didn't want to put our staff through that... Zooming with our staff and seeing their faces, that interaction is really important."
