Technology and Interior Design Really Do Mix
I thought I would submit this to BlackBerry success story. While I was on vacation travelling in the Black Sea last month I received an unexpected email from Spark Awards that I am now a finalist for a custom piece of furniture- the “Beach End Table,” I had designed for a client. The date of the email is August 24th and I my interior design table must be in San Francisco by Sept 5th! I was in Bulgaria when I received the email! I immediately texted my assistant in San Diego and told her we needed the size of the table and the weight so we Know if it should be sent Ups, Fed Ex or other means.
I am wondering how I am going to do this? I was going to arrive from Istanbul on August 31st into San Diego and Sept 1st is Labor Day. So texted me back all the information I needed and made it happen. She and I ware able to ship my table to the Autodesk corporate headquarters in San Fransisco, for its arrival on September 5th. I flew up to San Francisco from San Diego (on Sept 7th) and here I am on Sept 8th and the “Beach End Table” is here and I will find out if I win on October 3.
So without email, text, phone, airplanes and the help of a lot of people behind the scenes, this would never have happened! This is to show how technology and interior design really work!
