Globalization has not only affected the global economy with its free trade, free flowing capital, and the low cost foreign labor markets; it has influenced the way designers create. Whether taking inspiration from their own cultures or being influenced by other parts of the world, designers are developing products imbued with international aesthetics. In this episode of Trendease DesignVision our hostess, Jennifer Castoldi, takes us on a virtual journey around the world to soak up a variety of products that represent the melting pot in which we live. In New York, London, Milan, or a small private island off the coast of Africa, interiors are experiencing many grand voyages from one room to the next.

Each year the Trendease Team travels to over 100 international design events to bring our readers cutting-edge design information straight to their computer screens via www.Trendease.com.

Your narrative skills are getting quite good. The content of this episode was "à mon goût" as well. Great episode!
