What Good Design is Made of…

Interiors & Sources is teaming up with furniture industry veteran Kenn Busch to bring readers “Material Innovations”—a special section of in-depth coverage on the latest finishes and surface innovations materials for furniture and interiors, as well as the performance panels that carry them. Material Innovations will explain materials in practical terms relevant to retail, hospitality, healthcare and other commercial design sectors, showing readers what good surface design is made of.

Launching in January 2009, Material Innovations will be an informative resource for designers, as well as a great opportunity to advertise products and services related to surface materials. If your products and services help create good design, you belong in Interiors & Sources.
