The Best Things That Happened in Interior Design in 2017

Pulp Design Studios Traditional Home Dallas Showhouse Entry Design

What a year it’s been… Wrapping up 2017 has been a bittersweet affair. We’re reluctantly waving goodbye to one of our best years yet, but eagerly looking forward to all the design goodness that 2018 will bring Pulp’s way. Time seems to only go faster as we add more projects to our boards and watch our schedules fill with travel, events and installs that we cannot wait to share with the world. We’re kicking off the year strong and booking clients for 2018 projects. Before we dive head first into another highly anticipated year, let’s recap the highlights of 2017…


Pulp Design Studios at KBIS 2017

We kicked off the year by heading to Florida to attend The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show with DXV!  We scoped out up-and-coming design trends to inspire a year full of projects for our interior design clients and wooed Howie Mandel with our Design Panel space.


Seeing our design for the DXV 2016 Design Panel in some of our all-time favorite publications, like Vanity Fair (gasp!!) and Architectural Digest was definitely a career highlight. Working with DXV on this project was an all-around amazing experience and seeing it published was the sweetest of cherries on top.

We headed to Palm Springs after being invited by DXV to attend and speak at Modernism Week! It was a great opportunity to network, learn and soak in all the beauty of one of our favorite areas.

Not only was this one of our busiest years yet, but we celebrated our 10 year business anniversary on March 15! We couldn’t have asked for a better tenth year and love looking back on our milestones over the years.

We brought our collection to the ultra-sleek Thompson Hotel in downtown Seattle for an afternoon of sipping and shopping with some of Seattle’s finest.
