Selling rugs, particularly higher-end, hand-knotted qualities, to a client can be intimidating to the uninitiated but typically proves to be the most cherished and celebrated element of an interior. This CEU presentation looks to instill the confidence needed to sell high-end by teaching the basic knowledge needed to identify “quality” and then technique to navigate this more sophisticated level of rug. What’s the difference between machine-made and hand-knotted? How do I tell the difference in person? What are rugs made from? How are they made? And how does all this affect the price? Finally, we look at techniques to strengthen a Designer’s ability to lead a client on this journey and perhaps take them to the ultimate rug destination.

How Nightmare Projects Test Your Limits—and Help You Grow

No matter how hard you try, some projects go sideways.

Products arrive late, damaged, or not at all. When a nightmare scenario arises, there's only one thing to do: pivot. Business of Home's editor-in-chief Kaitlin Petersen sits down with designers Cate Dunning, Lathem Gordon, and Hema Persad to discuss recent jobs that hit a roadblock—sharing what went wrong, how they found a new path forward, and how they've evolved their businesses to protect themselves in the future now that the dust has settled.
