The Home Depot’s design team is dedicated to bringing you the patterns and colors that will make your home beautiful and comfortable. You can see their expertise and designer’s eye in all of The Home Depot’s home decor products, including our new 2012 patio furniture collection.
We sat down with Sarah Fishburne, our Director of Trends & Design and lead designer for our 2012 patio furniture collections, to discuss how The Home Depot patio furniture collections are conceived, created and sold online and in Home Depot stores across the country. Here’s what she has to say about designing for The Home Depot:
Most people don’t realize this, but we begin planning each year’s patio collections 18 months before they even hit stores. There is a lot of attention to detail that goes into each design, and by the time a collection hits the stores, we have hand-selected every aspect of the final design.
The design process always begins with inspiration! We gather inspiration from around the globe, but most of our patio collections are inspired by COLOR!
