With the summer 2021 markets just weeks away, International Market Centers (IMC) is providing a unique preview of what’s trending in design and product – both regionally and nationally – in its next monthly Market Insights webinar, “Designing & Sourcing What’s Next in 2021,” on July 7. The CEU-accredited session is presented in partnership with Black Interior Designers Network (BIDN).
“Coming to market with an awareness of key trends saves buyers valuable time and helps to focus purchasing decisions,” said Dorothy Belshaw, IMC executive vice president, chief marketing, and customer officer. “IMC’s July Market Insights webinar previews key gift, home and furniture trends showcased at IMC’s Summer Markets in Atlanta and Las Vegas.”
In “Designing & Sourcing What’s Next in 2021,” four designers from across the United States will explore regional design trends and offer predictions about how these trends will impact the industry in the year ahead. Panelists are: Arianne Bellizaire, award-winning, Baton Rouge-based interior designer and founder of Arianne Bellizaire Interiors; Breegan Jane, a designer, entrepreneur, lifestyle expert and philanthropist in Los Angeles and founder of Breegan Jane Interior Design; André Jordan Hilton, principal designer and founder of Atlanta-based JORDANHILTON Interiors, known for his tailored, curated style; and DuVäl Reynolds, owner and principal designer of DuVäl Design, LLC, based in Fairfax, Virginia, honored by magazines as “The One to Watch.” Krissa Rossbund, senior style & design editor for Traditional Home Magazine, is the panel moderator.
The one-hour webinar is Wednesday, July 7, at 10 am PDT/1 pm EDT, and will be followed by a question-and-answer segment. Free registration is available online here. Attendees will earn 1.0 CEU credit.
