A couple of months ago I had the great pleasure of heading out to Indy with Delta Faucet. While you may not instantly think a trip about faucets would be a great pleasure, I can tell you wholeheartedly it was. I have been on a many, many trips with brands in the past, but this particular event was extra special, not only because of the brand but certainly because of the small but amazing group of bloggers and designers I had the good fortune to be surrounded by.
You see, something you may not know is that this group of us who are bloggers would probably never know each other in real life, if it weren’t for this common bond we have through what we do. Over the years, after many conferences and brand specific events we are regularly brought together from all over the world and many of us have come to know and adore each other. We don’t always have the time to chat or get together in our everyday lives, and we don’t even live close enough for that to be a reality. But… a few times a year we get to soak each other in and have the greatest time ever, thanks to some really special and amazing brands and events.
This was precisely one of those times. I had a chance to learn about a brand that has a wonderful ethos and a fantastic eye toward design and the future. The employee moral and loyalty is off the charts, which is apparent when you hear how long many of their people have been with the company. It’s astonishing and a rare thing in today’s world. They are innovators at Delta and Brizzo, with a sincere focus on the ABC’s of a consumer driven line of products, and I tip my design hat to that. There are many amazing brands and products in this world, but it is a rare thing indeed to see the passion and devotion, literally from top to bottom, within their companies. Truly something you can stand behind and feel good about choosing for your home or your clients.
I absolutely adored having the chance to spend time learning about an amazing brand and visiting with some of my faves… I also truly adored the chance to meet new faces and make new friends and this trip was filled with a wonderful amount of both. In fact out of the relatively small number of us attending this event, I actually only knew this pretty girl, prior to heading out here to Indy for this event. But I walked away knowing all of these amazing folks and adored each and every single one of them, so very much.
Our fabulous bunch included: jojotastic, Rachel Teodoro, Making it Lovely, House of Hipsters, Beginning in the Middle, Room for Tuesday, Sincerely Sara D, Centered by Design, and Bria Hammel Interiors
I’m terribly grateful for this experience and I loved hearing about all the tech they are focusing on for their upcoming product launches and existing lines. You all know I love my home tech… The day my faucets and other water related hardware are on the cutting edge of innovation, is a happy day indeed! I have some amazing things planned with precisely this in the next few weeks, and I can’t wait to show you!
