Meet Roxy with Society Social
It’s time to meet Roxy Te! I met this little, butt kicking, full of energy (y’all thought I had a lot of energy she runs laps around me) amazing woman at an event here in Charleston! She happens to be the brilliant designer behind Society Social. If you haven’t heard of her line before (where have you been!?!), swing by Charleston Revisions where you can see many of their pieces.
Grab a cup or two and find out more about Roxy! Here’s my Q&A with her:
I’m in love with your new arrivals. Do you have a favorite?
It’s always so hard for me to choose! Based on what’s in my apartment, the Quinn sofa and Sedgewick bar cart are currently winning. They’re both classic pieces that go with almost any decorating style.
How does it make you feel when you see your products in clients’ homes? Do you love when they send you pics?
It is my absolute favorite to see notes and pics from my customers! It’s still surreal to think these designs started out as just a thought, and seeing them in real homes – styled by real people – gets me every time.
Finish this sentence… when I saw my products in ________ (magazine, blog, website, etc), I knew I had arrived!!
When Southern Living and the art director gave instructions for me to dance on my SS tables, I knew I had arrived. I mean, they really got my business and me. 😉 And there’s nothing like bringing it home to the South!
What will you be working on next? What can we expect in your summer/fall lineup?
I actually just finalized designs for fall, and you can expect a crop of new sofas featuring designer details which SS customers have so embraced, mirrors, new bar carts, and so much more!! I hope to introduce the new arrivals in August… stay tuned!
I was in NYC for one night and I asked you the must go to place for dinner. Tell my readers where would sent me.
Well, you did ask, and I sent you to Fig & Olive 😉 The hopping ambiance makes it a fun place to start a big night out; not to mention it’s in the heart of the trendy meatpacking district!
You’re originally from NC. What do you miss most about the South?
This may sound simple and silly, but I miss walking around barefoot. If you did that on a NYC side walk, your feet would probably decay and fall off!!
Roxy was kind enough to participate in my now weekly “Guess Who’s Dropping in for Coffee” series. Come back each week for another interview with fantastic designers, trend setters and fashion extroidinars. You can follow the series here.
