Inspiration comes in many forms. For Curate To The Trade, Utah’s interior design showroom, it comes from community. “We support designers wherever and whenever we can,” says owner Allison Parkinson.
As a champion of the design community, Curate To The Trade offers an abundance of curated resources designers can access for inspiration including finish samples, fabric swatches, one-of-a kind accessories and more. “And it’s all here exclusively for designers,” Parkinson says.
“A designer’s time is valuable, so we try to be as helpful as possible,” says Hannah Olague, showroom director. “We’re invested in supporting their creativity. Our showroom has space for designers to set up and work or to bring their clients in; we also offer many online resources available 24/7.”
Curate To The Trade has been committed to raising the bar for local trade showrooms. “Our long-standing relationships with our vendors help us offer better discounts and to be client advocates,” Parkinson explains.
“We do a lot of research into new products and lines that we bring into the showroom. We are interested in how our products tell a story, because that story creates a connection we pass to designers and they pass on to their clients.” —Allison parkinson, owner

Watch for all the exciting new lines we’re adding to our showroom in 2021.
Gathering safely again with the design community. We hope to collaborate with a few of our lines to host in-person events focused on connection and learning.
We partner with a local non-profit organization to upcycle our endless amount of discontinued fabric samples. Instead of throwing them away, we donate these fabrics to local artists and schools.
