I know that the thought of sun, cacti, and gems may seem far away right now, but JCK Tucson is right around the corner! As we enter the home stretch of the holiday season, it’s fun to look ahead and anticipate the beauty we will see there. Asbury Adams I have a suggestion: Go follow Asbury Adams on Instagram.

Comments

I had the pleasure of meeting Deeta Thakural at JCK Las Vegas, she was kind, humble and had a strong passion for her craft. Her team embodied the same characteristics and as I listened to the stories behind the designs, it was evident I was surrounded by something special. That feeling is common when walking around the Design Center, chalk board booths filled with inspiration and a community of designers at each phase in their career. The neighborhood is made up of an eclectic and talented roster that I remember anxiously awaiting who the three Editors Choice Award winners would be. The…
