A Day at DCOTA

There’s a good feeling when likeminded individuals come together while nibbling on tasty bites, learning and seeing tricks of the trade, networking, and lastly sipping on crafted cocktails. The Crafted Chen traveled to Miami to attend DCOTA Fall market 2018.

For 30 years, Design Center of the Americas (DCOTA) has served the design community with the finest campus amenities and showrooms in the industry attracting world-class designers, architects, decorators, dealers and their clients.

At DCOTA Fall Market 2018, we were able to refresh our client-ready arsenal while industry professionals like Jane Dagmi, Editor in Chief from Designers Today, Shyrod Williams, Interior and Furniture Designer Shyrod Williams from @Majesticinteriorsco , and many more design innovators. Each person shared insight on achieving success in a design world that is ever changing.


We shared this experience with mom and she was spot on with networking and meeting everyone. She’s such an amazing support to The Crafted Chen business. Everyone we connected with loved her and she had a great time being in the room with wonderful creators.


So many takeaways of learning how to effectively share agreements with clients, perfect our pitch to press and our favorite seeing all the trendiest prints, furnishings, and the latest trendiest products. Attending allowed our culture to better serve our clients which is exactly what we wish to do for each one of you!

See you next year DCOTA and thank you for having us!
