The inaugural Future of Home conference, September 9-10, will feature in-depth conversations with top design and digital leaders about the forces of change sweeping the home industry. From fast furniture and on-demand design services to the evolving preferences of affluent consumers, the two-day event will address business changes and challenges, spotlight innovation, and lay the course for a promising future.
BOH editor in chief Kaitlin Petersen, managing editor Fred Nicolaus, podcast host and columnist Dennis Scully, and contributor Sophie Donelson will sit down with thought leaders driving these trends to ask what the interior design industry will look like a decade from now and beyond—and what it means for designers and brands looking to future-proof their businesses.
The conference will welcome 300 interior design and home industry professionals to an 18,000-square-foot space in Chelsea’s gallery district, which will feature activations such as an “automagic” interior powered by Google Nest. The experience will include dozens of top names on topics including cloud-based furniture, buying trends, home technology, fast furniture, e-commerce, community commerce, the future of the workspace, lifestyle brands, on-demand design services, how to build a direct-to-consumer brand, how to charge for ideas, retail design and legacy brands.
