Alexa Hampton designs for Kravet

Interesting article in the Sun Sentinel about Alexa Hampton, the daughter of a famous designer Mark Hampton.
(She is) a busy designer for discriminating clients, she also designs furniture for Hickory Chair and fabrics for Kravet.
In the interview she was asked, "When do you think a room needs updating?"
A. Rooms that are done in the heat of a trend tend to need redoing five to seven years later. Rooms that are designed with a more personal or timeless approach usually last for a minimum of 12 to 15 years. At that point, I find that fabrics often poop out, depending upon the wear that they receive.
While she designs for the Florida market, she is a trend setter and there are some clues as to what will get picked up nationally.
