It's a new season where new design concepts shake up our traditional sense of harmony and what "should" go together! Come and explore the new possibilities with me, as we continue to push our products into the modern world and ever-changing universe around us.

You'll see the new color, textile, detail, and layering mixes, the new harmonies and new proportions.

Join me on Thursday, Aug. 21, or Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 1:00 p.m. CDT!
