Houzz is the leading platform for home renovation and design and its mission from day one has been to create the best experience for home design by delivering the best technology and products. Last year Houzz won "Best App" at the inaugural Google Play Awards, and this year it was included in CNBC's Disruptor 50 list, at number 6.
40 million users visit Houzz every month, connecting with over 1.5 million home improvement professionals, across more than 60 trade categories. This community is collaborating together using technology to make the home renovation and design process better for everyone.
In this session, UK Brand Ambassador, Melissa McCafferty will share how Houzz is constantly innovating and developing tools to help designers work smarter. Melissa will also share examples how technology is changing the way designers and homeowners are working together – you no longer need to rely on your local networks to secure projects. Houzz will also reveal the 4 finalists of the #SketchChallenge, a competition where the Houzz professional community were invited to solve a Houzz user's design dilemma using tools powered by technology. Voting will take place during the show with the winner announced on the last day of Decorex.
Cushion-fluffing? Housewives passing the time? Or creative entrepreneurs often managing multi million pound budgets and working at a global scale... This panel discussion will look at how the profession of Interior Design is perceived, ask why so many common misconceptions persist in this industry and how this effects the role of the Interior Designer and commercial viability of the profession. Crucially it will also address the question of what can be done by Interior Designers themselves, as well as industry bodies to change this.
