Kick Start the New Year

VMSD offers you the tools to go from ordinary to extraordinary in 2013



Everyone has a story to tell. Whether it’s about your brand’s reputation as best-in-class, the latest products or your longstanding commitment to sustainability, you’ve got stories to share with consumers.

To help you translate that message from idea to reality, VMSD presents its second annual Look Book. We know you scrutinize every detail that goes into creating a brand-perfect space – from the right lighting and surface materials to flooring, fixtures, mannequins and more. So we offer a curated collection of new products organized by category with inspiring photos, product details and company information. Consider it your go-to source for ideas all year long!

Don’t forget that you can also check out our online Buyers’ Guide with an easy-to-use search tool for locating the companies and products you need for your next design project. (Add to your list of favorite sites.)

In early 2013, VMSD will also unveil a redesigned website at This upgraded site will deliver expanded photo galleries to delight your creative senses. A rebooted blog page will welcome more guest writers weighing in on the ideas and topics that are shaping our industry. And a new “From Our Readers” section will enable you to share your company news in a personal and timely format.

Lastly, mark your calendars for SPACE New York, May 18-20, at Javits Center North in New York. VMSD, in partnership with George Little Management, is elevating the tradeshow in 2013 to a more curated and design-focused experience with an edited mix of innovative products and services in a richer show environment. (Think on-site cafe for mingling, trend-focused educational seminars and customized display zones.) For more details, visit

It’s all part of VMSD’s mission to arm you with the best, most relevant tools to help you achieve success. What will your story be in 2013?

Hear from Bevan Bloemendaal, former VP, Global Environments & Creative Services at Timberland, how to connect the dots between disciplines, claiming and creating a clear differentiation for the brand and ensuring that any asset (experience, product, ad, store, office, home, video, game) is created with intention.
