This year, our friends at Michealian & Kohlberg helped kick off The Pacific Design Center's Annual "West Week" by inviting Mark to be a special guest speaker! Mark gave a great talk (to a packed house) and shared his tips on "How to Build a Room From the Ground Up". Using many of Michaelian & Kohlbergs beautiful carpets as examples; he showed how he often uses an area rug as inspiration for a whole room.. Or, sometimes the rug is simply a serene backdrop to the rest of the space... Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we want to thank Michaelian & Kohlberg for the opportunity. It was inspiring to see all of the great design elements that West Week had to offer this year!
