It all started with a simple question we posed to the design community via our @crossvilleinc Twitter account.
“What word comes to mind when you think American Design?”
The outpouring of response was phenomenal. Interior designers, architects and media types from far and wide chimed in, tweeting their often impassioned replies and taking off on conversational tangents that were exciting and intriguing. Clearly, we struck a chord!
As a matter of fact, the conversation grew so much that we’re now hosting a live Twitter Chat on the topic: #AmericanDesign. Mark your calendar now to follow our hour-long bantering on this topic that resonates with so many: July 5th at 6 p.m. Eastern.
It’s going to be a great exchange, especially thanks to the unique collection of folks who’ve stepped up to lead the chatter.
