Designers and Manufacturers Gather in Sunny Santa Barbara for Interior Design’s re:Source

It’s hard not to have a great time in a location as stunning as the Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara in California. Just ask the more than 100 designers and manufacturers who recently spent a a few days there, talking about the future of design at Interior Design‘s latest re:Source event. From a kick-off dinner at the hotel’s Ocean Terrace to an action-packed day of meetings—more than 1,300 during the three-day event to be exact!—every minute left a lasting impression.

But the event was far from all business all the time. For a dose of early morning inspiration, EVP of SANDOW Design Group and Design Futurist, AJ Paron, presented on the role design plays in building empathy and how built environments can improve human interactions—and wellbeing. Several rounds of morning meetings followed Paron’s talk before an afternoon of R&R. Activities ranged from a wine tasting and tour at Stolpman Vineyards to yoga on site as well as an eco hike. Day 2 closed with cocktails and dinner at the hotel’s Ocean Bluff before a final day of meetings commenced.

As re:Source came to close, attendees had an opportunity to take home an array of door prizes thanks to Interior Design‘s partners, from a custom 3form table to a Delta faucet of the winner’s choice, to the Emily stool from Nightingale Chairs, and more.
