When the COVID-19 pandemic started, no one knew what to expect. No matter the industry, every business was scared and confused by this unprecedented situation.
The home décor industry was no exception, with everything from manufacturers and distributors to designers and contractors being impacted by the global health crisis. While the industry was first impacted negatively by the cultural shift, recently, there has been a shift towards the positive.
“At the beginning of the pandemic, people didn’t know what to expect. Almost every hospitality or residential project was put immediately on hold. There was not that much interest or traction to buy any products for the home or the hospitality projects,” explained Luis Ruesga, co-founder of Zuo Modern, a wholesale contemporary furniture company.
Jennifer Farrell, of Jennifer Farrell Designs, has been creating showcase homes for years, but she has never been able to achieve her vineyard dreams. That is, until now.
“Each time I’ve [created a showcase home], I have had this romantic notion of building a vineyard,” she said. “I’ve always been a Francophile and I’ve always loved wine and the South of France and the vineyard lifestyle.”
While she has considered implementing a vineyard into past projects, it had never been practical, but with her newest project, Calibu, her vineyard dreams are coming true.
