Beth is truly amazing. She formed BDE in 1996 after her role as Executive Publisher of Metropolis Magazine.
For over 20 years, Beth consulted for ICFF® on identifying new talent and securing the participation of industry giants. In 2012 she co-founded Be Original Americas, a non-profit organisation to inform, influence and educate on the value of original design. The organisation has developed CEU accredited courses for design & architecture, works with U.S. Customs & Border Protection to identify copies and invests in a new generation of designers with an annual 5-week Student Fellowship.
She is a frequent speaker on design, authenticity and marketing.
Together, we formed a strategic partnership back in 2018. BDE works with leading companies in the field of design, travel and food such as Alessi, FLOS, Homo Faber, Iittala, Ligne Roset, Lissoni NY, Maison & Objet, nowboat, Sirha, etc.
Full of recommendations from design aficionados, native Italians, and more, BDE’s Milan Restaurant Guide is packed with the city’s best places to eat - organized by neighborhood, with custom google map. Enjoy!
