For design professionals, there’s really something special about the in-person experience of visiting and sourcing from shops and showrooms and establishing unique relationships with each. That said, as we’ve learned all too well from the past year, sometimes, life happens and it’s just not possible to do so. Which is just one of many reasons why we’re so stoked about our partnership with My Showroom Software. As a result of this relationship, participating designers are given access to participating showrooms anytime, anywhere, from wherever they may be. What could possibly be more convenient?
The ability to seamlessly source from and communicate with any participating showroom’s staff 24-hours a day, 7-days a week is monumental for the design industry and can truly elevate the design experience. This is why instituting a partnership with My Showroom Software was an easy decision to make. The platform was developed to allow showrooms and design centers across the country to service interior designers where they spend a tremendous amount of time — online. Thus, the vision of a digital design center came to life.
Overall, the software focuses on pairing designers who’d like to source items online with relevant participating Dallas Design District showrooms. When designers use the platform, they can expect an easy and efficient digital experience and can count on the showroom staff to be there for them in real-time, thanks to features such as chat. In addition, participants are granted access to designer net pricing, tear-sheets, and will also have the ability to seamlessly contact showrooms for quotes, if needed. Wondering how it works if you're not a design industry pro? While the platform is currently only marketed to designers in the Dallas area, anyone in the general public is still able to go to the site and see available products, then have the option to contact showrooms to request pricing or next steps for purchasing. It really covers all bases of things anyone could potentially need if and when they cannot physically get to the DDD.
Currently, there’s quite a handful of Dallas Design District showrooms shoppable in the DDD Digital Showroom. You can find all your favorites from Ambella Home Collection, Arteriors, Baker Dallas, Bright Group Dallas, Brown Jordan, Bungalow 5, Codarus Showroom, Currey & Company, Dedon, Ebanista, EC Dicken, Ferrel Mittman, Hickory Chair, ID Collection, McGannon Showroom, Made Goods, and Marge Carson. And, aside from our Design District, My Showroom Software also partners with other Design Districts, such as our sister property, the Laguna Design Center, as well as the Denver Design District, and the Seattle Design Center, to name a few. Each design center is specific to its territory so that designers have direct access to their preferred showrooms and sales staff.
