A few weeks ago, we launched an exciting two-part series on our social platforms called “Process to Product” and “On Display” featuring fabulous products from 200 Lex showrooms. We have enjoyed learning about the creative process behind the design of specific products and lines from the showrooms of 200 Lex. We are inspired by the skilled craftsmanship and details process it takes to create such beautiful products.
Seeing these products in various design projects exemplifies the rich relationship between designers and showrooms of 200 Lex. The story behind each product is as fascinating as the design process is crucial when completing a project.
The following showrooms, have an eclectic range of products and lines. Through highlighting each piece, we are able to get more in-depth understanding of the inspiration behind products.
