I just got back from Napa Valley, California where I spent four days with architects and interior designers from all over the country who specialize in interiors for education, both K-12 and university level. Tandus Flooring hosted the event and the purpose was to get feedback directly from the specifiers. We all had a blast pouring over the potential designs. Although our job was fun, the interior designers did not have it easy – after viewing dozens of options, they had to narrow the final selection to 5. I am proud to say that my newest carpet designs made the cut. I’m now working on coloring these today. Coming up with enough good colorways for a single carpet design can take more time than creating the pattern!
When we weren’t deliberating and selecting new patterns, Tandus organized tours of two wineries. What a treat! Here are some photos of the wineries, and the beautiful land surrounding them. Hey… and the wine was great too. I ordered a case of Chardonnay from Nicholson Ranch in Sonoma. I couldn’t resist!
