With Kelly’s background in Interior Design, Design/Renovation business ownership, strategic planning, leadership, and event planning, she sought and created mutually beneficial sponsorship with three of the design industry’s most notable businesses, whose vision and spirit of community are in alignment with that of Ethos. One whom has fourteen brands under it’s umbrella. The collective reach of our first three sponsors (National and International):
Lighting One– A coop of more than 320 Lighting Showrooms across the US and annual convention that Kelly, and Leslie attended, with the VP of ALA (American Lighting Association of America), the head of the Dallas Market Center, and the Marketing Division of Parent company, CCA Global Partners, an international company with 14+ brands, in over 3000 showrooms across the world.
ProSource has an estimated 17,000 designer members and close to 2 million visitors to their website annually. ProSource will feature Ethos Design Collective members, as well as back link the Ethos Design Collective Designer Directory on their website.
Lighting One and ProSource will be developing and marketing programs geared towards designers with input from Ethos Founders and Collective Associates, ongoing, in forums designed just for this purpose, including co-creating and launching pilot programs across the country exclusively for Ethos’ membership. The first two originated in St. Louis, MO.
Design and Detail is a to-the-trade designer showroom with multiple US locations, representing the top vendors and offering the best design resources in the industry. They offer fresh, distinctive lines of furniture, fabric, wall coverings, lighting, carpeting and so much more.
