IMC/Juniper Hosts “OUT OF THE BOX DESIGN OPPORTUNITIES” on Wednesday, August 24

ATLANTA, August 16, 2022 – Juniper is set to host an “Out of the Box Design Opportunities” webinar, addressing the benefits, challenges and revenue potential of year-round design opportunities – such as holiday and seasonal, vacation rentals and staging – on Wednesday, August 24 at 2:00 p.m. ET.

“JuniperMarket is a valuable 24/7 sourcing tool for interior designers aiming to capitalize on the red-hot housing market by adding or expanding year-round design and home staging services,” said Bill Furlong, Juniper CEO. “JuniperMarket’s depth and breadth of home décor, furniture and seasonal SKUs provide designers with a unique opportunity to source and shop from trusted brands between in-person markets.”

“Out of the Box” Design webinar panelists include Christopher Todd, whose background in special events, floral design and interior design led to his current ownership of both Christopher Todd Design and Christopher Todd, a retail store in Henderson, NV; and Annette Grant and Sara Karakain, co-founders of Thanks for Visiting, a company devoted to educating the future of short-term rental owners on proper design and hospitality practices.

Speakers will address topics such as current design trends, challenges in staging and how client and designer roles have shifted in the past two years. Also discussed will be the differences in larger and smaller home design projects and managing project time frames and deadlines. Diane Falvey, Editor-in-Chief of Furniture, Lighting & Décor will moderate. Participation in this 60-minute session is free, and pre-registration is required. To register, visit
