Thank you DRC for hosting this event especially for those who were not able to attend Market and giving us a peek at what’s trending in our world of design.  Their showroom is always stocked with a large selection showcasing the extensive list of vendors they represent.

Photography credit is due to John Stillman who not only provided photos of the event but became another new member that evening. Welcome John!  Why is it we never seem to have pictures of you? Thanks for being our man behind the camera.
