On October 13, 2016, I accepted a First Place Prize at PowerHouse SMART’s industry Stellar Success Story Awards Ceremony for my GOGO Living video series, (formerly Luxe for Less). My video series was selected by the judges in the category, Results Driven Online Marketing Campaign. What an honor to be singled out among all the Stellar Marketers in the Luxury Design/Build Industry.
Living an authentic life, keeping it real and fostering human connection and a sense of design well-being is my MO. So it makes sense that a huge part of WHY at GOGO design group is to improve people’s lives by empowering them to discover what nourishes their soul and make them feel good.
Presenting Winning Entries at PowerHouse SMART’s Industry Stellar Success Story Awards Ceremony
I encourage my clients to embark on their own self-discovery journey when we begin work together, and I can say that producing my GOGO Living video series has been an incredibly enlightening and inspiring journey for me. Writing and creating videos is a wonderful, creative outlet which brings me tremendous joy, while allowing me to connect to my client and trade audiences, of course until we can meet face to face. GOGO Living has become my voice in sharing my passionate WHY!

A good challenge always keeps us on top of our game and Gogo Design Group had the privilege to take on another one recently as part of the Palecek & Kravet Inspiration Chair Contest. We were one of six design firms nominated by CAI Designs to compete.
Setting out to the Kravet Showroom, I had my vision and chomping at the bit dove into the fabrics. Thinking color and texture are what’s going to make my chair sing, I selected a creamy and soft faux fur fabric for the seat and back and a red and yellow Ikat fabric. But to my disappointment, these fabrics were not in stock and this would disqualify me from the contest.
I dove in again and since I wanted a contrast between color and texture – my daily approach to breathing energy and personality into inanimate objects – I found an in-stock Ikat pale turquoise and yellow fabric for the inside back of the chair to coordinate with a silver/taupe metallic and striated fabric for the seat and back. The welting around the seat and inside back was created with velvet muted turquoise, and I selected antique bronze nail-heads to pick up the gray/taupe tones in the fabric. Finally, I selected a distressed yellow chair frame to connect all of the design elements of the chair together. The result – The GoGo Chair!
It’s so great to seize opportunities and squeeze the most out of them. This was one such opportunity. You can go to CAI Designs Facebook page and vote for my chair for the next week. The chair with the most “likes” will be the winner! Winners will be announced on October 8 at the CAI Design showroom at the Merchandise Mart, as part of Design Chicago Week. Gogo Design Group would like to shout out a huge thank you to Kyle Blevins of CAI Designs for nominating us for the Contest. It’s such a blast working with Kyle on our various projects, and this one was especially fun!
