First Half Recap of the Monogram Modern Home Tour

We recently interviewed Alex Skobel, Monogram Designer Development Manager and lead for this year’s Monogram Modern Home tour, to find out her thoughts on the first half of the tour. The Monogram Modern Home tour will resume next month (September 9 and 10) in Houston, Texas.

SRFD: What have you learned from the first three tour stops?

Alex: The first three stops have been a huge success for the Monogram brand. I would say the biggest thing we learned is that it is key to tie the Monogram Modern Home to an event that is going on in the local market to help drive traffic.

SRFD: What do you think you will do differently in the next three tour stops?

Alex: We have done a great job connecting with the designer community, but we are going to really amplify the communication through the local NKBA and ASID chapters for the rest of the stops.

SRFD: Favorite experience so far?

Alex: My favorite experience so far was the panel discussion we had at the DODLA show. The panel consisted of Michela O’Connor-Abrams, CEO of Dwell; Lou Lenzi, Director of Industrial Design for GE Appliances; Jamie Derringer, founder of Design Milk; Gretchen Hansen, founder and CEO of Decorist; and Lisa Blecker, Director of Marketing at Resource Furniture. What a great group of smart, creative and experienced people. The audience was so engaged with them and I loved it!

SRFD: The city you’re most looking forward to?

Alex: I’m really looking forward to the Miami stop, since we are tying that event to Design Miami which happens November 30 – December 4.   Should be a fabulous couple of days in Miami with the designer community.

SRFD: A city you would love for the tour to visit?

Alex: I would love for the tour to visit Denver because it’s an up and coming city with lots of culture to it.

We’re hitting the road again!

Method Homes and the Monogram Modern Home

Written by Brian Abramson, co-founder of Method Homes

Method Homes is a modern prefab builder based out of Seattle that focuses on well-designed, sustainable homes that are built offsite with a high level of craftsmanship and architectural detailing.

We were thrilled to receive a call from Dwell discussing the possibility of building the Modern Monogram Home. As these things tend to materialize quickly, the timeline for design and construction was extremely tight. The Method, Dwell and Monogram teams worked in conjunction with the architects at Chris Pardo Design: Elemental Architecture to turn around a a fully engineered design and specifications over the course of several weeks instead of the months it would normally take. This is a testimony to the shared vision for the home and the design sensibility of the whole team.

It is important for Method Homes to remain innovative in the home-building space. The collaboration with Monogram enabled us to focus on innovation by using state of the art appliances, a commercial double wall siding system, accordion doors and expansive window and door packages, and by designing a home that could withstand travel and multiple installations.

Method Homes learned a lot about the logistics of a multi-city tour through the Monogram Modern Home experience and it was gratifying to see the reactions of all that visited in every city. The feedback we received is that visitors were impressed with the quality and materials in the home. We were pleased to see the home looking none the worse for all the travel when it got to it’s final tour stop in Boston. The home held up remarkably well and looked as new as when it left our plant months earlier.
