Episode 534: ART Membership Drive


The Creative Home Furnishings Network (known today as ART, Accessories Resource Team) is the only trade association for the home accessories industry, encompassing all segments, from interior designers to retailers to manufacturers to sales representatives to publications and trade shows. The group is perhaps best known for its annual ART Awards, the “Oscars” of the home accessories industry held each January in Dallas and honoring many of these same facets. ART’s annual Conferences are also buzzworthy events with a unique atmosphere that sends attendees home inspired and encouraged.
