SEATTLE, Wash., Oct. 14, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Seattle Design Center, the Pacific Northwest’s only designer showroom, will host “Design Week” – a virtual celebration of design, bringing together designers across the PNW, running from October 26 – 29, 2020. For the first time in SDC’s history, the fall market moves from a one-day in-person experience to a full-week. Twenty-eight virtual sessions and events have been carefully curated to ignite creativity and unveil the latest product lines and design trends.
This unique, and first-of-its-kind, virtual fall market invites industry professionals and the design curious to attend and enjoy interactive presentations. Sessions will include the traditional new fall designer lines, products trends, and announcements, as well as expanded sessions from local and national experts focused on business, health and wellness, the art of flower arranging, photography, and designs.
In addition, during Design Week, Seattle Design Center is thrilled to announce their new philanthropic partnership with Humble Design Seattle, whose main goal is to stop the cycle of homelessness in the Puget Sound region. Humble Design supports people emerging from homelessness by transforming empty houses into welcoming and personalized homes using donated furniture and household goods.
“We are so thrilled to partner with the Seattle Design Center. As we help families move gracefully from homelessness to an individually designed, stable home, we could not dream of a more perfect partnership. It is a natural alignment and we are excited to explore all the ways Humble Design can collaborate with the design community to make an impact together in Seattle,” said Humble Design Seattle Executive Director, Kelley Moore.
Design Week will provide highly anticipated presentations highlighting new luxury collections and lines that can only be sourced at the Seattle Design Center’s showrooms as well as interactive discussions, giveaways and vendor appearances including:
- Keynote presentation by Stacey Brown Randall, entrepreneur, and nationally renowned author of “Referrals Without Asking.”

- Webinars from Keri Petersen, owner of KP Spaces, Nisha Kelen, owner of FLEURISH – Floral Design Workshop and a health and wellness workshop by Joshua Hunter, owner of Treat Yo Morning Routine and Molly Kieland, owner of FuelHouse Gym).
- To further increase the appreciation of design, and welcome new talent to a wide array of design aspects, a dynamic panel of local trade experts and designers will share their secret design weapons.
“This is an exciting time for the design community, and we are grateful we have the resources to virtually bring everyone together to celebrate all that is happening in the industry. This year’s Design Week, even in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, offers something for everyone. We are thrilled to provide a welcoming environment for designers and the design curious with a wide-range of diverse and accessible programming options,” says Gina Colucci, Marketing Director for the Seattle Design Center.
