A Busy Week of Work

It's been a crazy busy week, and it isn't even over yet. I was lucky enough to go to NeoCon on Tuesday for work. For those of you who have no idea what NeoCon is, which I am assuming is nearly everyone, this is the best description I have for it; NeoCon is essentially the "fashion week" of the office furniture industry. Top brands set up showrooms to display some of their best products and their brand new lines. Of course, instead of a week, NeoCon lasts for three days, and instead of New York City or Paris, it's hosted in Chicago. 

NeoCon is a huge destination for designers, big name furniture brands like Herman Miller, Steelcase and Knoll, and furniture retailers and buyers. All in all, it was an incredibly cool experience. Some of the designs were simply gorgeous.  

First, the Knoll showroom pictures:

The Knoll Inc. Showroom was one of my favorites, and this is absolutely my favorite picture from the whole conference. The colors highlighted were orange and pink. Peonies were everywhere, and I was in love with all of the design elements.

To be followed by the KI showroom favorites:


Gray was a HUGE color this year, and I am such a fan!

My coworker Nicole (of Brew City Bark) and I even got our caricatures drawn in the KI showroom! It was naturally one of my favorite showrooms at NeoCon.

He asked if we were twins before beginning - definitely not the first time we have been asked!

Herman Miller made for another excellent stop. Here's me testing out one of their amazingly comfy chairs:

Lastly, no trip to NeoCon would have been complete without a stop at the Steelcase showroom:

There swatches and fabric samples were just SO beautiful!
