DDB Market Week - NIEDERMAIER Men at Work Event

Friday, October 11, 2013

Beer, Bourbon and BBQ, plus a group of handsome artisan, what could possibly go wrong ? Well, is nothing! On October 1st, 2013 NIEDERMAIER showroom from Decoration & Design Building hosted their first "Men at Work" Event in their modern showroom. The panel discussion was led by NBC LXTV Host - George Oplihant with a group of talented artisan Denis Colluro, Seamus Fairtlough, Travis James and John Eric Byers. The men told us about the stories on how they get started in the American Handmade Furniture Business and the process to complete a project. John Eric Byers said: " I used to stayed up 3 nights in a row to complete a single artwork." Inspiring, isn't it?

It was a great party  to meet all the designer experts and I was glad to be a part of it. Nothing is more inspiring than to hearing a successful person talk about his/her own journey to success. Nevertheless, most importantly they all cause us to look at who we are, and what we are doing for others and ourselves. Just like Henry Ford once said: "Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right!"
