DESIGN ADAC | WHERE DESIGN IS PERSONAL
Co-Sponsored by VERANDA

At DESIGN ADAC 2016, consumers and trade professionals are invited to join an incredible roster of designers and industry elite who will educate and inspire about how to customize any and every aspect of your environment. From personal stories about creative influences and product creation, to practical ideas for tailoring color, fabric, and furniture to suit your life and needs, experts will reveal a world of personalization and an imaginative counterpoint to the neutral landscape of mass-marketed interiors.
