What Happens In the Lounge...

We're giving virtual kisses & hugs to everyone who visited the Steelyard Designer's Lounge at High Point Market!  So many great conversations and experiences, so little time...not to mention the dogs & the swag & the nail polish... oh my!

The Designer's Lounge officially opened on Friday at noon. In anticipation of the hundreds of interior designers who registered for the Steelyard Designer’s Lounge at Universal, the Steelyard/Universal team quickly got busy assembling swag bags. Giant Thank Yous to Emily Morrow Home for the wood coasters, Chandi for keychains, Tartan+Twine for cosmetics case, Sunbrella for bright orange journals, Crypton for sticky notes, and Design Manager for pop-sockets (what we've since learned are incredibly hip & trendy).  Also much gratitude to the amazing Universal interns who helped out in the Lounge and behind the scenes.

The Lounge, tucked inside of Universal's To the Trade showroom, is open daily throughout Market as a convenient, comfortable, and most hospitable space for designers and media to meet, chill and refuel. With it's beautiful vignettes and ample square footage, it also makes a prime space for dedicated events.  This year we greeted attendees of the Fashion Snoops Culture to Product seminar for happy hour, designers and business coaches from the Interior Design Summit, and various boutique tour groups, as well as the crowds who came to Crypton's Pooch Pop Up fundraiser and the various educational seminars in Universal's Learning Center. Whether you're simply hungry or hunger for knowledge, good company and a phone charger, the Designer's Lounge satisfies.

And FYI, we are already planning for next High Point Market. We have some stellar ideas up our sleeves!
