Building on the success of its three prior events, national trade show organizer Design Edge Co. will host its next exhibition March 15-16 at the Mana Wynwood Convention Center in Miami. The event, organizers say, is expected to attract more than 500 interior designers.
The two-day, in-person Design Edge Miami show is open to professional interior designers throughout Florida. The roving trade show will present more 50 designer-friendly brands from the home furnishings and kitchen and bath sectors, doubling the number of manufacturers since its inaugural event in 2021.
New exhibitor brands for Miami include Currey & Company, Eichholtz, Fine Art Handcrafted Lighting, Jamie Young Co., and Sherrill Furniture, as well as Artistica and Tommy Bahama, two divisions of Lexington Home Brands. Among the returning manufacturers are Eastern Accents, Global Views, Made Goods, Palecek and Vanguard. The Design Edge Kitchen and Bath Experience will give the Florida design community the chance to see products in these categories. Featured brands include Cosentino, Monogram, Brizo, Azzurri Luxury Kitchens and Sherwin-Williams.
Programming for the Miami event will include a special guest appearance by celebrated designer Celerie Kemble of Kemble Interiors, as well as a Luxe Interiors + Design magazine-sponsored panel discussion, “Building Your Brand,” with design industry pros Thom Filicia of Thom Filicia, Inc.; Netflix series star Eilyn Jimenez, also principal of Sire Design; Dwayne Bergmann, Dwayne Bergmann Interiors; Marissa Cornejo, Design Marketing Collective; and David Beld, Palecek. Gail Doby of Pearl Collective will moderate the discussion.
Additional event partners and sponsors for the Miami event include the Florida chapters of the American Society of Interior Designers, the High Point Market Authority and the South Florida chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association.
