Workroom Central Zone

Participate in IWCE’s interactive, hands-on demonstrations and presentations given by expert individuals in the industry.

WFCP Workroom Central Zone is the place that brings the industry full circle. Annually, designers, fabricators, installers and upholsterers gravitate toward the booth to be inspired by the creative aspects of the vignettes, gain valuable information from the instructional presentations and learn new skills during the hands-on demonstrations.

This is also a place where the beautiful fabrics, trims, hardware and supplies that are so generously donated by our vendors are brought to life by the artisans and showcased in their final form.

Over the years, due to the visual and interactive aspects of the booth, it has become a gathering place to meet new friends, reminisce with the old, and share our knowledge and vision of what’s to come.

With industry leaders Ken and Sandra VanSickle, IWCE is excited to announce several new elements for 2020!

—Three Artisan Vignettes

—One Design to Installation Vignette

—Pillow Contest (details below)

—Cash Prizes Awarded to the 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-Place Winners in the Artisan and Pillow Contests
