Dallas Market Center’s April 2017 Dine + Design Channels Purple Rain


DALLAS – March 13, 2017– Channeling the power and pop of iconic artist Prince’s Purple Rain, Dallas Market Center hosts the semi-annual education and networking luncheon, Dine + Design – this time diving into an exploration of the history, psychology, and power of the color purple. This event for the design community, to be held on April 4 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., is the largest gathering of interior designers in North Texas.

Dine + Design will bring together more than 400 designers and their guests for a networking luncheon and educational opportunity to gain insightful knowledge about upcoming trends and to serve as an opportunity to earn a CEU. The CEU, “No Shrinking Violets,” presented by Ashlynn Barton Bourque of Sherwin Williams, will explore design trends and themes with the color purple.

“Our Dine + Design program is an incredible resource for interior designers not only to keep up with trends and earn CEUs, but to mingle and network with hundreds of other individuals in the industry. Continuing education is a vital part of being a successful interior designer, and this event, in partnership with Dallas Market Center, is critical for designers,” said Ashlynn Barton Bourque, Designer Account Executive for Sherwin Williams. 

Along with networking opportunities and a CEU credit, guests will view design vignettes sponsored by Dallas Market Center exhibitors including: Ambella Home Collection, Bella Rustica, Contempo Designs, Cyan Design, Design Directions, Designer’s Patio, Global Views & Studio A Home, Nakasa by IMAX, Revelation by Uttermost, R.D. Bozeman & Associates, Surya, and Taylors.
