Allison Paladino at the Inside Out Showroom with Florida Design

I recently kicked off summer in the best possible way – alongside colleagues that have become my great friends. On June 9, Florida Design and the Inside Out showroom hosted me for a presentation to discuss the “Ins & Outs of Developing a Product Line”. I love developing product, so it was pure fun to share my tips, tricks, and slight mishaps along the way – it is all part of the journey!

Founder of Inside Out Joy Eber and Florida Design have both been a part of my own journey. I’ve known Joy for nearly 25 years. She has always been very supportive of my career, and we have a special connection that I value. When I released my first collection with Century in Chicago, she congratulated me and sent me flowers to the show. She is a star and she surrounds herself with a team that matches her enthusiasm and can-do attitude.

Florida Design has celebrated key moments and milestones with us. When Zita Rudd was promoted to partner, who better to sponsor the event? That was where we had the pleasure to meet Florida Design editor-in-chief Luis Rigual, who introduced me to the Inside Out audience. Just like creating a collection, it all comes full circle!

Thank you to everyone that joined us, to Inside Out, to Florida Design, and of course – to my wonderful product collaborators: Perennials, Fine Art, EJ Victor, and Century! To learn more about my collections, click the link HERE.
