First off, Happy New Year! Welcome to 2015! We wish you and yours a blessed new year full of good health, peace, and friendship.
While we are happily settling into 2015 and looking forward to a wonderful new year, we are also reflecting on the past. Here are just a few highlights from 2014 and what excites us about the coming year:
2014 brought great new staff to INTERSOURCE:
Peggy joins us as an Account Manager, Krista as the Director of First Impressions, and Erin is our new Project Coordinator/Expeditor. Please visit the Our People page to read more about each of these stellar additions and while you’re tooling around, check out our new staff images and the subtle but refreshing changes to our site. We sure hope you like it!
Soon there will be another new face added to the Our People page. Come February, INTERSOURCE will be welcoming Sue Kimal as an Account Manager for Commercial Sales. Sue is a motivated people-person with a great sense of humor and a vast knowledge of the industry including a great understanding of the technical side of commercial floor covering from her 20 + years of Commercial Interior Design experience. We think she’s going to be a great fit and a wonderful resource for our clients.
DESIGN FOR A DIFFERENCE
The end of summer brought some happy news!
First, our efforts to promote Design for a Difference, a national interior design contest that gives the winning charity a space makeover worth $25,000 in retail goods and services, and four regional winners $2,000 in goods and services towards their makeovers, proved to be fruitful for our community. Local designer and our treasured client, Lucy Penfield of Lucy Interiors, won the Midwest Region with her thoughtful makeover design for Free Arts Minnesota. We were honored to promote the contest and collaborate on the project. Thanks to many generous donations, Lucy was able to complete her full vision for the space. Check out the before and after shots below and stay-tuned for a video highlighting the project:

RANDOM FUN STUFF
The other happy news we received a few months back was wonderful recognition by the University of Minnesota which we are proud to share:
Riding the good vibes wave, we quickly landed into December where we hosted the ASID Holiday Party for its members. It was a jolly event, with live holiday music, scrumptious vittles, gorgeous flowers donated by Wisteria, and most importantly, an eclectic bunch of talented design professionals brimming with holiday cheer.
GOOD STUFF, NEW STUFF
Eric and Nancy spent last week in Las Vegas discovering great new product for the coming year, which also marks the start of INTERSOURCE’s 20th year in business!
Eric and Nancy and all of INTERSOURCE are grateful for your support over the years and look forward to the next 20 years of serving you! INTERSOURCE aspires to be your first and best floor covering source. We know we can’t do that without your valued input, so please do not hesitate to share ways our showroom and services can better fit your needs.
Best to all in 2015!
