Norwalk is running a very interesting contest open to all sales/designers who sell their furniture in all the Norwalk Galleries across the country. There are many national stores and galleries like the one at our store in Keene. I thought it sounded fun and right up my alley as a designer, SO I ENTERED!! If you were chosen as a finalist you go to Norwalk, Ohio to attend their pre-market showing for their reps and dealers letting folks know what will be presented at the upcoming furniture market in High Point. The five finalists attend this October's pre-market, October 6th, and enjoy a full day of events which include a tour of the factory the Parade of Chairs, and where our sofa style Inspiration Boards will be on display for all in attendance to look at, including Candice Olson. Candice - also of HGTV's Devine Design (one of my favorite design shows) - also designs a line of furniture for Norwalk, will be be presenting the winner!
OK how much cooler can this contest get? WAY! So the prize? The winner has their entry in the running line of styles for the next year, and over the next 5 months or so, work hand-in-hand with Norwalk's product development and marketing teams to bring the new style to April 2012's market. The winner goes to HighPoint 2012 to present their style.
Can this get more exciting? YES! I AM ONE OF THE FIVE FINALISTS!!!
Wish me luck! - Nicole
