The proverbial tug of war designers often have with clients includes how to convince them to buy art for the design masterpiece of a home that you the designer has created for them. Join Thomas Lavin in welcoming gallery owner Peter Blake and designers Sheldon Harte and Ohara Davies-Gaetano in a conversation about helping clients integrate art into their homes, including educating clients about art and how galleries often can help provide the spark for collecting. The conversation will include tricks to making a home feel artful, such as wallpaper applications.

WestWeek 2018 at Pacific Design Center, Suite B310 Design Industry 2020 Wednesday, March 21, 11:00 AM There is a new platform in town​ – E-commerce – and it’s here to stay. Please join us for a panel discussion at the Thomas Lavin showroom moderated by Modern Luxury group publisher Christopher Gialanella with designers Windsor Smith, Ryan Jackson and Janice Barta ​about their thoughts on e-commerce. How do they/will they use it? How does it inform their staff? And will the showroom experience continue to be necessary, especially in light of new practices by some showrooms like Thomas Lavin that offer cash and carry for lighting, small pieces of furniture, textiles and a host of accessories.
