Sessions Descriptions


The Mind of the Consumer
Friday, September 13th at 10:00am – 11:00am
Susan Inglis, Sustainable Furnishings Council

Based on SFC's own research among consumers who have purchased home furnishings recently, content provides insight into their current thinking - including preferred terminology, hot button issues, level of concerns, purchase interest, price sensitivity, and perceived obstacles. Learn why consumers do what they do, and what you need to know to be effective with your marketing and sales efforts.


See Jane Go!
Friday, September 13th at 11:15am – 12:15pm
Jane Dagmi, Designers Today

Jane Dagmi, Editor in Chief of Designers Today, shares her personal journey from Philadelphia to High Point and maps out how a lanky late bloomer full of ideas but low on self-esteem found her path on the trade show circuit, detoured unwillingly, and eventually reclaimed her groove sharing stories about interior designers.



Sherwin Williams Color Mix 2020 Forecast​
Friday, September 13th at 1:30pm – 2:30pm
Michael Plank, The Sherwin-Williams Company

The 2019 Sherwin-Williams Colormix Color Forecast starts here. As the Director of Color Marketing and Design (CM&D), Michael will introduce 42 trend colors specially curated to work together easily, in any room. 

Artist Gallery

Join us during the afternoon reception on Friday, September 13th at 3:30pm – 5:00pm, for interactive art presentations. The unique gallery features live art demonstrations on textiles and the opportunity to network with designers. 

Windy O’Connor
Abstract Painter, Windy O’Connor Art and Home

Windy O’Connor is a Charlotte-based artist who has turned her passion for painting into a venture into pillows, wallpaper, textiles, and so much more. She is inspired by abstract expressionism, beach days, and color and has made it her mission to make fine art a part of every living environment. Her work brings excitement and joy into the home, whether it be in the form of a Chica painting or a throw pillow designed from one of her abstracts. Windy’s work truly reflects her lifelong mission statement that “life is a journey and pursuit of creating something that brings others joy”. Windy will showcase some of her newest textiles and wallpaper designs along with some one-of-a-kind pillows. A small collection of original works and prints will be for sale.
