2020 is a pivotal year for interior designers. When showrooms shut down we were forced to find creative ways to access via Zoom calls and virtual appointments. With projects around the country And limited travel we had to get creative w course, which meant relying heavily on our contacts and networks both near and far. Circaphiles came to the rescue with multiple missions via vendor presentations and the official launch of the vendor contacts around the world, I can continue working on projects outside of San Francisco without having to travel as much as I am use to. 

Margaret Ash

I believe so much in your mission. I think it would be so awesome for designers to be able to find things like specialty custom gates, or cafe curtain rods, or tumbled stone tile, etc and not have to call a 50 people before they can even start the search. And to be able to have an idea of price points, lead times and communication before even reaching out to a vendor… it will be a game changer.

To have a resource like this created by an industry insider makes this a key resource for designers!

about our founder

Genevieve Trousdale,
CircaGenevieve.com

Leveraging 15 years of experience, successful collaborations with prestigious industry-leading designers and vendors, and an impressive list of international connections, Genevieve Trousdale shares what she’s been privileged to gain.  Ms. Trousdale’s business acumen, passion for design rooted in history, and desire to improve professionally has inspired the development of Circaphiles.

This environment of positivity and valuable alliances offers designers the opportunity to share insights not learned inside a classroom.

“This platform is meant to teach designers how to run projects: the logistics and day-to-day work, how to make a construction timeline, what to specify for a custom sofa—[these things are] so important, and the younger generation of designers needs a leg up before they start working for big firms. We’re working for the future.”
