As sad as we are to see summer go, we’re already looking forward to the extensive line-up of fall design events. We’ve compiled a list of can’t-miss events (with some that you’ll find Team Chairish at!), as well as some gorgeous books to flip through, so that you’re set with tons of new inspiration as we usher in fall!
