"Every new beginning comes from another beginning's end"
The origins of this quote are attributed to the first-century Roman philosopher, Lusius Annaeus Seneca. You may also recognize this quote as a lyric in the popular 1990's hit, "Closing Time" by Semisonic (click the video to listen!). This quote and song came to mind when I was turning in the last patterns for December 2017 Showtime. With the design, marketing, merchandising and sales teams currently working together to finalize the line presentation for Showtime, it marks the end of this furniture line in terms of design; however, it’s just the beginning for a new line! Artwork vendors are presenting their new collections, while we are also researching new trends and analyzing previous successes. In a philosophical sense, it is the end and the beginning of the circular nature of our business.
