RING IN THE NEW
As is custom, the design industry kicked off the year with major
trade shows in both the United States and Canada, where
i+D found the aisles packed with positive energy. At both
the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in Orlando, Florida, and the
Interior Design Show in Toronto, energy was up, manufacturers
pulled out all the stops with new product development, and
designers were eagerly sourcing for current and future projects.
This positivity was reflected in recent figures that affect the
majority of businesses. As this issue of i+D went to press,
the Dow Jones Industrial Average had hit an all-time high and,
despite a slight dip back down in December, The Conference
Board Consumer Confidence Index registered a 17-year high
in November. While some headlines today are not quite so
encouraging, financial prospects for the year look good.
To kick off our own year at i+D, we turn our lens to the ways
in which we see design influencing our lives at every turn-from
our cities to our purchasing power to our lives at home. In this
issue, i+D explores the positive ways design professionals are
influencing cities across North America ("A Tale of Four Cities,"
p. 30) and the tactics they are employing to keep knockoff goods

out of our countries and the marketplace altogether ("One of
a Kind," p. 36). On the residential side, we investigate the way
people utilize their living/dining spaces today and the moves
designers have made to accommodate those preferences ("The
Demise of the Dining Room," p. 42). And, to help inform your
daily business, we take a look at design industry statistics on
time management ("Design by the Numbers," p. 26) and running
a design business in the disruptive digital era ("See, Like, Buy:
Design in the Digital Age," p. 22).
The year may have just begun, but the industry is on track to
make it a great one. And, i+D will be here to highlight the many
ways design professionals play a major role in effecting positive
change in every aspect of our lives.
