Rachel Cannon highlights Louisiana artisans in her Suites at Market Square tour
“I use Market as my sit-test, touch-test and close-up inspection test for the pieces I think will work for my clients. I like to tell them I’ve sat on every cushion a supplier offers and am confident I’ve made the right choice,” says Rachel Cannon, owner of Rachel Cannon Limited Interiors in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. During her Fall 2016 Market Suite Spot Tour, Cannon gave an engaged group of designers an up-close experience of unique suppliers who exceed her high standards for creativity, product quality and impeccable customer service.
“I wanted to showcase vendors who aren't necessarily major industry players with huge, elaborate showrooms or ad campaigns. These companies are relatively small, or are just starting out. I have worked with most of them, and in all cases, I have admired their products from Market to Market. Meeting the owners and learning their stories is a great way to determine whether to partner with them on client projects,” said Cannon, who also explained why the selected exhibitors appealed to her.
