Monogram is a long time partner and go to for us at DesignDash, as well as our design firm, Laura U Design Collective. We love them because they believe in three main pillars that we, as creatives, can easily get behind: sourcing superior Materials, offering high-quality Performance, and taking Ownership. Each of these upholds their commitment to high quality, innovation, and their ongoing relationships with designers and homeowners. 


  1. If you love travel, the design industry is perfect. There are so many travel opportunities all around the world.
  2. Business trips don’t always have to be about business 24/7. You can easily create a balance between work and leisure on each trip.
  3. Major exhibitions, like Maison et Objet, are perfect opportunities for networking. There is so much to gain from experiences like this.


We believe that all creatives must pursue their curiosity, wherever it takes them. Satisfy your wanderlust with a curated journal of the beauty that surrounds us in art, travel, wellness, and design.
