What’s New What’s Next with Barclay Butera

By danielle


It’s 5:14pm and Barclay Butera’s session just wrapped up. What a great talk with a showroom full of architects and designers. In between tweeting for Kravet and posting on typepad, I managed to snap a few photos and listen in on what he had to say about this work and his design career. He’s got it all – retail, great clients and amazing manufacturing partners. ¬†You know why? He cares! One thing that I loved was when he encouraged the crowd to “remember your client’s children’s birthdays and to send the family holiday cards.” It’s those little extras that go a long way and what has made him so successful. He mentioned that he is working on some new color books for Kravet. And his next book is about entertaining – indoor/outdoor design!

Now it’s off to see what What’s New, What’s Next throughout the building!
