Design Chicago, 2017; KBDC Staff in that Toddlin' Town
Design Chicago, 2017, the Midwest’s largest residential design conference, was held on October 3rd and 4th at The Merchandise Mart located in the heart of Chicago. Facing the Chicago River, TheMART, as it’s known to locals, houses some of the top showrooms featuring luxury kitchen, bath, and home décor along with indoor and outdoor furnishings. Spanning two city blocks, TheMart welcomes an average of 25,000 visitors each business day.
Building on the success of last year’s Design Chicago event which had been held in September, our design staff Kate Yurgelun and Paulina Drozdzowski, along with owner Lorey Cavanaugh, attended the new expanded two day venue, which featured 50 showroom open houses and 39 presentations on design, technology and the latest trends.
Back from their whirlwind excursion, they are looking forward to putting some of what they learned and saw into practice.
