We have gone back to basics – to shelter, to nourish, to gather. If this period of change has taught us anything as humans, it’s to disconnect and to reconnect. What’s become important is who we connect with, where we gather and how we bring this togetherness into our homes. It’s all about being present and celebrating the moment. It’s about authenticity, truth, compassion, and humanity. This is our vision at POP Design Studio for the 2022 East Coast Radio House + Garden Show. Let’s gather.
If it’s household appliances and technology you’re interested in, Hirsch’s will be on-hand with the latest and best for you to test out.
