Connect!: “INSIDE OUT –
Bring Interior Design Elements Outside”

Spring has sprung in The Ghiordes Knot showroom! Trade members are invited to come see their new vendors and designs that work well in both indoor and outdoor spaces as well as areas where clean-ability is important. Are you looking for options that work well in high-traffic zones such as kitchens or areas where red wine may be an issue? These new designs solve many “inside” problems with “outside” products. See new products from Sunbrella and Harcourt and learn their best applications for use in your upcoming projects. This event will be held virtually only.


Connect! is a series of informal product presentations for trade members hosted by our showrooms. Each 30-minute event is complimentary and will focus on a specific design-related topic.
