    The Next Generation of Showrooms is Shaking Up the Multiline Model

    For all the expanding digital capabilities of these new showrooms, a physical space to go, see, touch and feel is still an enticing proposition—one that Nancy Evars is investing in. A designer for 15 years, Evars has a firm based far enough south of San Francisco that weeknight showroom events in the city are unrealistic to drive to. That fact combined with her own line of upholstered furniture and an itch for a local design hub led her to launch Evars Collective on the San Francisco Peninsula. The brick-and-mortar, to-the-trade showroom will not only serve as a destination for sourcing and inspiration, but will focus on community, incorporating a membership component with social and professional networking opportunities.
