Introducing Alena Capra, Coverings Industry Ambassador. She couldn’t help but be drawn to this eye-popping tile design featuring the designs of artist Keith Haring.
We are thrilled to announce that we have enlisted Alena Capra to be the Coverings 2015 Industry Ambassador. In this newly created position, Alena will serve a critical role as a liaison between the Show and the design community. She will be sharing her tile and stone trend insights, reporting from industry events around the world, and meeting with trade associations and A+D firms leading up to the Show.
Alena brings more than 12 years of experience as a residential designer to the role, and is accredited through the National Kitchen and Bath Association as a Certified Kitchen Designer and Certified Bath Designer. Capra has shared her expertise as a speaker at various design shows around the country and as been published in media including USA Weekend, Florida Decor and more.
Alena also has a long history with Coverings and its exhibitors, education and special programs. The last time that the Show was in Orlando, she was enlisted as a designer for the inaugural Installation Design Showcase, and she has continued to expand her role with the conference since.
Alena recently spotted tiles in a range of creative new styles at Cersaie 2014, where she joined Coverings Show owners Tile of Spain and Ceramics of Italy to see the latest industry trends.
We look forward to sharing her insights here on the Coverings Blog. Stay tuned here for the latest (including highlights from her recent design-spotting trips in Spain and Italy), and follow #Coverings2015 across her Twitter (@AlenaCapra), Instagram (@AlenaCapraDesign), Facebook and Pinterest.
