Last week, I spent a few days in Austin, Texas at SUPPLY showroom for "SUPPLY School", an event which allowed vendors to speak with interior designers about their products and process. SUPPLY also hosted the kick-off party for the Tribeza Interiors Tour. The vendors attending "SUPPLY School" included Twenty2, Ellisha Alexina, Flat Vernacular, Avo, Brook Perdigon, Caroline Cecil, Elworthy, Fayce Textiles, The Foundation Shop, Kari Fisher Design, Kufri, Maresca Textiles, Steve McKenzie, Stone Textile, Ambriel Floyd, Matthew Fairbank Design, Abnormal Anonymous, Krane, and Relativity Textiles.
Interior designers are impressed by SUPPLY's choice of displaying their textiles and wallpaper. Tall ceilings, white walls, and pale pink ceilings - that match the color of the front door - showcase all of the textiles, wallpaper, lighting, and furniture in the 1930s bungalow. Being able to touch, feel, and carry a fabric into the next room - mixing and matching until your heart's content is truly an experience.

Needless to say, I was impressed with the work from this dynamic trio - Kim West, Callie Jenschke, and Kristen Gish, the owners of SUPPLY. Meeting the vendors in person was truly amazing. This "makers movement" that is currently underway is huge and being able to hear how each artisan creates their textiles and wallpaper was very exciting.
If you are in Austin, or near, don't walk - run!
