BROWARD MASTER BROKERS FORUM EXPLORES HOTTEST TRENDS AT THE DESIGN CENTER OF THE AMERICAS WITH SPECIAL LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN MAGAZINE RECEPTION AND PRESENTATION
Elite Real Estate Professionals Enjoy Personal Tours of Showrooms
and Presentation from LUXE Editor Pamela Jaccarino
The Broward Master Brokers Forum (MBF), an organization comprised of South Florida’s top residential real estate agents, recently explored the hottest interior design trends at the acclaimed Design Center of the Americas (DCOTA) in Dania Beach. This special event was sponsored by LUXE Interiors + Design magazine, and its publisher Sandow Media Corporation.
Upon entering the 775,000 square-foot DCOTA campus, more than 70 Master Brokers were greeted by some of South Florida’s most talented interior designers, and taken in groups to visit several extraordinary showrooms. Members were welcomed at the Designer’s Plumbing Studio, Eggersmann Kitchens, Inside Out Outdoor Furniture, the Nessen Showroom, Perczek Furniture Design, and the PPM Collections, and enjoyed personal guided tours of these unique showrooms, as well as light refreshments.
After reconvening in DCOTA’s “C” atrium, members enjoyed a fast-paced, cutting-edge seminar on the latest national interior design trends from Pamela Jaccarino, editor-in-chief of LUXE Interiors + Design. Ms. Jaccarino, who has been with the magazine since 2005, outlined a fascinating series of modern style and design developments, influenced by regional tastes, cultures, and the economy. Following this presentation, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
“As Master Brokers, our clients look to us for sophisticated guidance and advice, beyond the basics of just buying and selling homes. This level of cutting-edge, progressive information on interior design trends truly distinguishes members of this organization,” said Carolyn Block Ellert, chair of the Broward MBF. “We thank everyone at LUXE for this wonderful presentation, as well as the amazing designers and showrooms for welcoming us so graciously at DCOTA.”
