Susan Kostelnecky's Latest and Greatest Things - Design and Trend Showcase

Susan started today's last seminar with a bang, showing us beautiful and functional drapery hardware from a wide variety of manufacturers. I was really impressed with Iron Art's Clip-A-Crown and want to get a close look at it in their booth

Some of the supplies featured: Somfy's motorized shade is a show special - I want to get my hands on that one! Wavy Drape is a two part tape which creates perfect spacing. Ialso want a Tape Measure Grip and Grid Line Tape supplied by Rowley, (Booth 1539).

Jackie Von Tobel's new fabric line is stunning ! Carlette Cormier, Savannah Fabrics, has a line of fabrics and products with historical motifs. Creative Fabrics has plenty of interesting buttons. Decorative onlays which can be painted or stained are provided by Decorator's Supply Company. Diamond Head Upholstery Tacks are interchangeable decorative tacks in a wide variety of colors. Joanna Braxton's pelmet, covered with embroidery and trim, is gorgeous! English Home has pretty ready-made embroidery panels and sheers.

When I walk the show floor, I'm going to have a closer look at Stewart Filmscreen's acoustic motorized blackout (soundproof) shades (Booth 1416) and the Camily Wand, handy for getting rid of bugs in Silhouette type shades.

Lots of great products to explore once I get out on the show floor tomorrow! Thanks, Susan, for the great introduction to these innovative items!
