I recently joined a Chicago-based online design network, Refined Haystack. This new site is a hyper-local online resource where designers, showrooms and stores come together to connect, share feedback and information, inspire ideas and facilitate the design process. I highly recommend checking it out, and be sure to stop by my profile while you’re there: CLICK HERE .
Refined Haystack is a home interiors network, where local stores and designers connect and collaborate. Using the power of technology, Refined Haystack showcases local resources via an easy-to-navigate functionality, presenting the city's vast design offerings and providing simple tools to help manage and promote design businesses. In an effort to streamline communication within Chicagoland’s design industry, the site was designed to serve as a resource connection point for sharing local home interior sources. Refined Haystack is a marketplace of local design – from top design professionals to the best in design and décor sources. The website also acts as a tool for the design professional and showrooms/stores to utilize as they work together and support each other. The goal for Refined Haystack is to act as a one-stop-site where designers, showrooms/stores and homeowners can communicate and explore; it is a place that thoughtfully supports everyone’s interests.
