AmericasMart is strategically staging showrooms to generate energy and attract more buyers with enhanced cross-merchandising opportunities, and continuing to develop the area into a designer-driven center.

Ireland—presents “Creating a Home,” a special discussion on her design philosophy, aesthetic inspirations and unique sources from around the world, sharing her process of combining pattern, texture and color to create the feelings of a well-lived life.
