We were thrilled to welcome Annie Nozawa and Doug Durando into our Rockville Showroom for our first Open Houzz event! Annie kicked off the night with an introduction to the Houzz platform, followed by a panel discussion featuring local design experts Ernesto Santalla of Studio Santalla, Nicole Lanteri of On My Agenda, and Daniel Steinkoler of Superior Home Services. Following the panel discussion, we broke for networking and refreshments.


The night wound down with a presentation by Annie geared towards how professionals benefit from using the Houzz platform. Throughout the night, attendees completed drawing cards to win a gorgeous Theodore Alexander box. At the end of the night, a name was drawn and the lucky winner was announced: Arlene from Gaithersburg, Maryland.


We thank Annie, Doug, Ernesto, Nicole, Daniel, Tim Baldwin from Theodore Alexander, the staff at Rockville Sheffield Furniture and all of our lovely attendees for making the night a great success!


All the best,
Sheffield Furniture & Interiors
