Text by Lynda Simonton

Wakefield Design Center’s To The Trade Only Day is well known for bringing design stars to Fairfield County, but their upcoming To The Trade Only Day may be their most star-studded yet. The afternoon event gives designers a chance to learn about the latest trends in home furnishings, enjoy talks by leading national designers, get some of the hottest interior design books signed by their authors, and earn CEUs. There is even an opportunity to have your design portfolio reviewed by the editorial staff at New England Home.

The event will take place on November 5 and kicks-off at noon with a talk by stylist, and style maker, Eddie Ross. Ross will talk about his book Modern Mix and share insider secrets for discovering chic finds for the home.
