MinneCon 2011

By Emily Anderson, Allied Member ASID
Last week we spent Thursday afternoon at MinneCon, Minnesota's version of Chicago's NeoCon. It was a fun afternoon learning about the latest offerings from the contract world. We test drove desk chairs, oohed over fabrics and ahhed over flooring.
One trend we saw over and over was gray and yellow. It's a favorite color combination of our principal designer Lisa Peck. However, it is not new to her, she designed her own home in yellow and gray over ten years ago! We feel it is a great classic color combo, that stands the test of time. Both energetic and restful, these colors create balance.
