Soo excited for this next podcast episode with special guests from Art of Floors, Tom Ethridge and Katie Stewart, we'll be discussing what it means to design for the Hospitality industry and how creativity plays a role.
In this episode, we discuss the following questions:

2.) [Tom] How did the idea for Art of Floors get started? What role does creativity play at Art of Floors?
3.) [Katie] What are some design styles that Hospitality clients are drawn towards and why?
4.) [Tom & Katie] If a designer would like to work in the Hospitality industry, what are some essential things you’d look for in a portfolio?
5.) [Tom] How do you see the Hospitality industry changing in the next 5-10 years? How does Art of Floors plan to evolve and “future-proof” its business?
6.) [Katie] What are some up & coming trends you see coming specifically into the Hospitality segment? How do you do your trend research?
7.) [Katie] What types of software do designers need to know to work in Hospitality? Or is it different for every company?
8.) [Tom] How do handmade goods play a role in Hospitality? Do you see a rise in demand for handmade products or only in certain niches?
9.) [Tom] Do you see Art of Floors expanding into other categories? Would you ever offer pillows, upholstery fabrics, or other types of products?
10.) [Katie] Walk us through your career as a designer. You have an interesting story and made some major sacrifices being long distance with your (now) husband. What advice would you give entry level designers who are looking for a new opportunity?
