The COVID-2019 pandemic has changed our views on many aspects of our life. It gave us a chance to pause and think about what we really want out of our lives.
Whether it was pursuing a different career path, moving to a different city or starting a new business venture, things have changed a great deal in the last few years
Since then, the traditional office 9-5 desk job has transitioned for most to a fully remote position. This has given people the ability to spend more time with their family, save money on fuel cost to the office (and the headache of traffic) and even allowed people the opportunity to travel.
As the standard workplace continues to evolve, why not allow designers the freedom to do the same?
We work with designers every day and understand these pain points.
How am I able to work from home when I have to get samples from the showroom for my customer?
That’s why we moved our showroom into an online platform. By creating our online showroom, we finally gave designers the opportunity to ditch the typical 9-5 workday. Sleep in a bit, you don't have to worry about the showroom hours – it's online!
