With its inaugural appearance at High Point Market, Hunter Douglas, leading manufacturer of custom window treatments in North America, hosted interior designers at The Point to discuss integrating smart home automation into design aesthetics. Business of Home editor in chief Kaitlin Petersen moderated the conversation among top interior designers Christopher Kennedy, DuVäl Reynolds and Lori Paranjape before opening it up to the audience for questions.
Expertly demystifying home tech, Kennedy, Reynolds and Paranjape addressed the challenges of incorporating motorized window treatments and other automative innovations without compromising on style. The engaged audience furthered the discussion by asking about practical yet elegant answers to their smart home dilemmas.
“DuVäl, Lori and Christopher shared not only what smart home features they use the most in their work but also how they talk to clients about the transformative impact of automation,” said Petersen. “Whether it’s a shade that rises with the push of a button to help you start the day, a window treatment for a hard-to-reach skylight or an integrated whole-home system, they shared how to incorporate smart home solutions that are easy to use and improve daily life. High Point Market is the epicenter of great ideas and innovations for the home, and I’m so glad the Hunter Douglas team brought us together to have this conversation at The Point.”
