Ever notice how some people have oodles of really cool stuff on their desk? Katie Clements, a Materials Specialist Designer, is one of those people. Here’s a snapshot and a few words from our “material girl.”
1. I meet with vendors frequently to stay updated on the latest and greatest materials, so my old-school rolodex is literally bursting at the seams. I have a one-in, one-out policy to keep it manageable.
2. My sister lives in Miami, FL, and the Clevelander at South Beach is always our first stop when I visit. I try to make the trip at least twice a year, and this Clevelander coaster is always a great reminder of our time together.
4. OMG, I love everything Kate Spade, and this advertisement makes me feel like taking a fantastic road trip. I also proudly display Kate Spade’s Live Colorfully campaign, which introduces a different color theme, with merchandise to match, each month.
5. I work closely with great vendors and sometimes they surprise me with fun gifts: a brush man to clean my keyboard, a vintage cage lamp and cork puzzle pieces!
