How to Master the Next Age of Design On Thursday, September 24th, ELLE DECOR Articles Editor Charles Curkin and renowned designers Alexa Hampton, Keita Turner, and Jamie Drake joined the New York Design Center’s twelfth annual What’s New, What’s Next event for a virtual discussion about the current state of the interior design industry. Hampton, Turner and Drake agree, the business of creating interiors was once heavily dependent on personal, face-to-face meetings, but now, with self-quarantine mandates and travel restrictions, designers are having to find new ways to conduct business. In this conversation, the designers discussed the challenges of navigating the new digital landscape, and offered tips on how to master the “new normal.” This conversation was produced and hosted by Theodore Alexander, located at Suite #515 in the New York Design Center.
