Now in its 11th year, Home & Design’s “Hot Talent” feature spotlights local pros who have launched firms of their own. Our mission is not only to cover the region’s top established designers, but also to spotlight the next generation. During our first 10 years, we did a pretty good job predicting future success stories. Among our illustrious “Hot Talent” alumni, we can count designers who have debuted their own fabric collection (Marika Meyer), created home furnishings for national brands (Darlene Molnar) and even landed an HGTV pilot (Lauren Liess).
Now, we are thrilled to reveal our 2018 designers: Romain Baty, Laura Hodges, Jeanne Griffin, Caryn Cramer and Stuart Nordin. Links to their work appear below.
