Robinson Home Trade Program
As we entered the design field we realized designing was the easy part — navigating the ordering and logistics was a different story. It can be a challenge to showcase your design talent without having access to the products you need, but gaining access to the vendors supplying those pieces can take years of vendor development and a substantial buy-in.
We developed our trade program to give fellow designers a helping hand and bridge the gap between designers and quality vendors. Our years of experience in logistics and vendor relationships allows us to simplify the order process for you. It is our priority to provide members with direct access to our service representatives, competitive pricing, and logistic management so you can focus on designing for your clients.
When we designed this program we weren't only thinking of interior designers! Architects, decorators, home stagers, real estate developers, and professionals in the restaurant and hospitality industry can all benefit as members of the trade program. Membership is free and it's easy to apply.
