Recently, Laguna Design Center hosted the annual Orange County Fall Market event and each season, someone from the Burgin team attends. It is always a great place to connect with the industry movers and shakers and see new products and trend directions.

This year, designer Tamara Stratton attended and shared her thoughts:

I found this year’s theme “Design Influencers” to be especially inspiring. Keynote speakers and influencers Justine Blakeney, Kirk Nix, Cecil Adams, Anne Sage and Patti Carpenter all informed us with their unique perspectives in the world of design which spans lifestyle branding, high end residential and commercial design, global trend forecasting, home retail product development, and digital marketing.

The speakers answered questions about their path to success, inspiration and insights into the current design market in an interview panel format sharing their tips and personal experiences. On the “design” side the questions remain the same: what is new, what is effective, and what do people want? How can we integrate these in our client’s designs? How can we educate?

The day explored many different views on new products, processes, and trends but in the end, my big take-away was the strength of common thread between us. Designers share an incredible passion for what we do. Regardless of our distinctive niches, designers collectively express the ultimate motive to enrich the lives of our clients by elevating their space!

Our shared goal is to listen to our clients and translate their personal needs and desires into a more effective and beautiful version of their home. It sounds so simple, but It is anything but! It is a craft and a calling!

Events like these remind me of the great joy and privilege I have as a designer to make personal connections and to make a positive difference in lives and homes. it is  about being “TRUE TO YOU” which has always been our mantra at Burgin. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be “invited in” when our clients are ready to begin their project.
