The blog took a back seat to all things Mod Mom expansion...but I'm back!  I'll be sharing the behind the scenes stuff as usual.  It's mind blowing to think this blog started in 2007.  So much has changed since then but at the same time, so much has remained the same.  We are still here!  That's amazing considering so many of my counterparts back in the early days folded due to the market turn down. I'm so grateful to still be here not to mention expanding!

Let me catch you up a bit....
  1. Mod Mom has a new President!  Robert Petril is his name and he's an industry veteran.  If you haven't met him, check this out:  http://www.furnituretoday.com/article/488609-mod-mom-furniture-names-petril-president
  2. We are in Vegas right now meeting with retailers and industry folks about what's coming for Mod Mom!  The pics above are from our time here.  What a great show!!  http://www.lasvegasmarket.com/
  3. Which brings me to.....what's coming for Mod Mom?? Well, I am so excited to share we will be producing upholstered goods as well as wood products for kids/families (chairs, storage, modular seating with storage).  We're in the process of getting that side of Mod Mom up and running and are hearing from buyers/retailers/families that cool, mod upholstered items are desperately needed in the kids market.  So we're here to deliver! Look for more on this side of things as we get into the fall. 
As always, I can't thank you enough for all of your support --Mod Mom would not be possible without the support and love of all of you!  Look for more updates and more blog posts about the adventure of expansion.  I'm sure it will be just as interesting as reading about me cutting my finger in the garage with a biscuit joiner but just less messy!
