We have all felt the pain of the last year in the design industry. While the furniture manufacturers are having record sales, they have also been faced with a multitude of challenges that have resulted in backorder after backorder and lead-times up to 4 times as long as their standard timeframe. These issues have been a trickle effect that have resulted in a disappointing game of telephone from the manufacturers having to tell showrooms, showrooms having to tell designers and designers having to tell their clients. We are pleased to have Tim Dahlberg of Rowe and Robin Bruce Furniture present a talk on what happened behind the scenes over the past year and what we can expect moving forward over the year to come. Though he cannot speak for every manufacturer and does not possess a crystal ball, he will share insights from the manufacturing side to help us all gain a little clarity into the murky waters we have been navigating.
