Event Description:


What can this local furniture darling tell us about consumer trends and preferences? As it turns out, quite a lot. Since its establishment in 2013, Article has grown to now employ over 1,000 people and has recently marked its one millionth order!

Please join us for an intimate conversation with Article’s Vice President of Marketing, Duncan Blair, as he tells us about how Article has managed to set itself apart in a very competitive and saturated furniture market. We’ll talk about how tech has transformed a traditional brick-and-mortar industry, where consumer trends are leading, and what the future looks like for Article.
