POGGENPOHL & COSENTINO HOST IIDF MEETING
June 27, 2012
On June 12th, Silestone by Cosentino (www.silestoneusa.com), a family-owned company and world leader in natural quartz surfacing, hosted the Independent Interior Designers’ Forum (IIDF) monthly meeting at the downtown Poggenpohl showroom. The sleek space was the perfect setting for an intimate conversation with the group who discussed a bevy of industry topics, including color options, pricing, distribution, and how to best work with fabricators. IIDF was founded to create discussion, share mutually beneficial information, strengthen business skills, and generally further the aims of independent interior designers based in New York City. Co-founder of IIDF Kent Brasloff (Ask Kent and Co.), welcomed the group and introduced Lorenzo Marquez, VP of Marketing for Cosentino North America who shared an overview of the Silestone brand and its expansion plans in the U.S. market. Attendees enjoyed a delicious spread of Mediterranean food and wine while networking with Cosentino and Poggenpohl team members, before settling into their “hot topic” discussion for the meeting.
