Wellness and Window Coverings

Thursday, October 8, 2020   11 AM EST/ 10 AM CST/ 8 AM PST

A well-designed life includes designing the home into a place for fostering health and happiness.  But why and how are wellness and window coverings interrelated? One of the most important building blocks for well-being is window coverings- offering protection, light and environment control. We’ll examine window coverings’ role in wellness, comfort, safety, circadian lighting and even air quality and present an outlook on the future of wellness and window treatments complete with success strategies.  Plus, provide a detailed road map that can help clear up confusion as new products and services battle over the health and wellness lifestyle.

The Future of Sleep

Thursday, October 15, 2020  11 AM EST/ 10 AM CST/ 8 AM PST

A well-designed life includes designing the home into a place for fostering health and happiness.  One of the most important building blocks for well-being is constantly neglected- restful sleep; even though we will spend approximately 25 years of our life in bed. This seminar examines the latest scientific and research findings; our relationship with sleep and the consequences of sleep deprivation, along with an outlook on the future of sleep and the role it plays as the home evolves into a healthy haven.  We’ll provide a detailed road map to the sleep revolution that can help clear up confusion as new products and services battle over the health and wellness lifestyle; hoping to help you design your best life.

It’s a Material Design World

Thursday, October 2020  11 AM EST/ 10 AM CST/ 8 AM PST

Experts have suggested that we are currently in the Age of Materials. At the very least, new materials are entering the market at a phenomenal rate while innovations in material sciences promise to dramatically change design. Additive manufacturing, Ai and biomimicry- to name a few -are creating new disciplines and specialties.  Fascinating scientifically tailored products and materials such as transparent wood, acoustic wallpaper, lab leather, graphene and emotionally-reactive fabrics can give design professionals an edge when dealing with internet-search savvy clients and aggressive competition. This seminar explores the link between materials, wellness and sustainability in interior environments and surveys high impact materials by category. You will leave with the resources needed.

Hi Deb-

I found your presentation one of the most interesting I have attended in a long time. All this technology is so impressive …I wonder where you find the time to keep on top of it all. I have started “dabbling” and love Evernote.  Thanks.       Gordon,  Gordon’s Window Decor
