Inspiration in the Studio

What a Summer! The SSID Team Finds Inspiration in NYC!

How can it be Labor Day? This was supposed to be the summer to enjoy lazy days and sunshine. Well, we got plenty of beautiful sunshine, but not too many lazy days! There’s been a lot happening at the studio over the past several weeks, but a highlight for all of us was our recent trip to New York City.

We were invited by our friends at Kravet to tour their studios and explore the design process that brings our favorite collections of fabrics and trims to life. The artistry and technical detail required for each new fabric is impressive. Now that we received a sneak peak of the pipeline of new products currently being created, it’s going to be great fun seeing them introduced into the line over the next year or so. We send a very special thanks to Steve Prada for the personal tour (gotta love the elevator selfie)!


We took advantage of all the big city has to offer the design world, including the showrooms of the D&D Building and The New York Design Center. So much to do, so much to see…


We  also spent some time seeking out the latest, most beautiful inspiration at the NY NOW show at the Javits Center.

And, of course, we found plenty of inspiration in the amazing food and fantastic restaurants.


I’m fortunate to work with some of the hardest working, most dedicated women around…who truly care about our clients and creating top-notch design. It was great to step away from the studio for a few days to nourish our creative souls.


So, bring on the fall! We’re refreshed and ready to make beautiful things happen!
