1/11/2022
I’m Josh Cooperman and this is Convo By Design. This episode features writer, speaker and architect, Peter Pennoyer. We are talking about classic architecture from a French Modern Townhouse to a rural Farm House, a log cabin in the Adirondacks. That is a broad stretch, so much to talk about. We are two weeks into 2022 and dealing with Omicron, the next variant of this seemingly endless pandemic.

Multi-Generational Design and A Focus on Aging in Place – Wellness & Design Thought Leadership Series | 358 | Andrea Hysmith

1/3/2022
I’m Josh Cooperman, this is Convo By Design and just like that it’s 2022. Where did 2021 go? Same place 2020 went, in the annals of history as a year the design industry (or any industry for that matter) will soon forget. We made it through and as this tight knit group of creatives and seekers of creativity did at the end of 2020, we lean into 2022 with high hopes. I wanted to start off the year with a new installment of the Wellness and Design Thought Leadership Series presented by...

Closing out 2021 with An Exploration of Art Through the Eyes of Artist/ Photographer Nicole Landau | 357 | It’s All About the Way You Perceive it to Be

12/21/2021
I’m Josh Cooperman and this is Convo By Design with photographer, artist and sculptor Nicole Landau who describes herself as a “Contemporary multimedia artist working in photography and monumental illuminated sculpture.” Succinct, but incomplete. I think we all work so hard to define ourselves for social media knowing that we have such limited time to try and explain who we are and what we do. This is why I dislike social media as much as I do, but also recognize that it is part of our...

Founder and CEO of his namesake multi-line showroom. This is Anderson Somerselle. As you might imagine, after hosting and producing this show for 8 years soon to be in our 9th, I speak to many creatives who each have their own personal and professional journey and you hear from them once they have arrived....

12/6/2021
This is Convo By Design with a multi-discipline creative who, as an actor worked iconic television shows like Ally McBeal, Nip/ Tuck and Arrested Development. She, as you will hear knows her art. So much so that she recently launched a business designed to bring incredible art to the general public. This is Portia de Rossi. I find myself often telling you, “I know what you’re thinking.” It’s not true, just a bad habit of mine. That said, I think it is relatively safe to say that many might...

Design Destination with Chris Goddard | 351 | Arkansas, Home to Stunning Design Style, Yes Really!

11/2/2021
I’m Josh Cooperman and this is Convo By Design. We are making a virtual stop in another American design destination, Arkansas. I know what you’re thinking, I get it…Keep reading. Sometimes, the heart and mind of a true pioneer allows them to see the opportunity right where they are and eliminate the journey altogether. Chris Goddard is one such design pioneer who happens to be based in Springdale Arkansas. Arkansas is, to many just another southern state they will never visit. If you are one...

The Business of Design, What You Need to Know | 350 | Wellness & Design Thought Leadership with Keith Granet

10/24/2021
This is Convo By Design with a conversation about the business of design. No pretty sofas, rugs or lamps….Just the nuts and bolts. You might say, “hey Josh, you talk about the business of design quite often, what makes this any different?” And you would be right. I try to bring you different perspectives about the business as often as I can from as many different perspectives as possible. It’s critical to both the success of the industry as well as those that make up business of design from...

This One is All Fun & Games | 348 | It’s Game Time and Luxury Design with 11 Ravens

10/12/2021
This is Convo By Design and today, we are talking super luxe gaming tables and changing ideas about residential entertainment. 11 Ravens, the LA based multi-disciplinary studio with a fondness for fun and games and luxury design. So, blending the two to form a collection of gaming tables made perfect sense. Launching the new collection from their brand new showroom in LA’s crown jewel of design, the Pacific Design Center also made sense. I sat down with friend and Director of Business...

No Stress Design? Yes, Please | 347 | Interior Designer Lorna Gross

10/4/2021
This is Convo By Design with interior designer, Lorna Gross, a super-chill creative with a hyper-focused approach to customer service. I think it bears repeating. A super-chill creative with a hyper-focused approach to customer service. Think about that for a minute. Regardless of your job, designer, architect, showroom manager, publicist, fabricator, journalist, the approach to customer service is pretty much the only thing of which you have total and complete control. As Lorna and I talk,...

9/28/2021
This is Convo By Design featuring a conversation with a rising design star from an emerging hotbed of spectacular design, Tulsa, Oklahoma… You heard me! Hear me out. For that past two years or so, I have been talking a lot about the work in what I am calling the design flyover states. That would consist of anything not California, New York and a highly specific group of cites that dapple the country, to include Miami, Atlanta, Boston, Aspen, Hawaii…you get me. There is some incredible work...

Aspirational Architecture with 3 of the Most Creative and Compelling Architects in the Biz Today | 345 | Crafting For What Matters Most

9/21/2021
This is Convo By Design with a conversation about aspirational change in design and architecture and ideas regarding the personal definition of success. We are going for a deep dive with an incredibly well qualified panel. Is it big, ultra-lux or perhaps there is something more? Social issues have caused a global refocus on what “home” means. Safety, security, comfort have become more often discussed topics than in years past. What defines aspirational architecture in a highly fractured,...

A Return to Wonderfully Whimsical Wallpaper | 344 | Area Environments President, Diane Perry

9/14/2021
This is Convo By Design and on the show today you are going to hear about a company that is changing the way you look, design and style the verticals, the upstanding barriers…. Yeah, we’re talking about wallpaper. So much has changed when it comes to design in general over the past 10 years, but dramatic changes in wall coverings have been a major focus for many creatives who were actively seeking new design frontiers to conquer. I would say the last major developments in wallpaper came in...

Remembering 9/11, Healing Through Architecture and Design | 343 | Paul Murdoch and the Flight 93 Memorial

9/9/2021
This is Convo By Design, commemorating the tragic events of September 11th the best way I know how with a conversation about remembering, honoring and healing through architecture. It is hard for me to believe that September 11th happened 20 years ago this week. Time has a funny way of blending and bending that flexes an individual timeline. 9/11 seems like yesterday but January 2020 seems like forever ago. You know what I mean? I spoke to Paul Murdoch, of Paul Murdoch Architects. I’ll keep...
