In our most recent issue of inspired.news, we shared several of our designer “musts” which highlighted things to see and do. As we reflect on what we’ve accomplished this year and what we’re looking forward to in 2015, we wanted to spotlight Meg Roberts from Echo Design, who shares her “musts” below. The Echo Design for Kravet fabric collections are immensely popular, both for their of-the-moment color palettes and timeless, versatile prints and patterns. In 2015 Echo Design will introduce a highly anticipated wallpaper collection, which coordinates with its recent Heirloom India fabric collection.
