We have some designers we’d like you to meet – Introducing Wescover’s Interior Design Ambassadors
Just recently, our team launched the Wescover Design Program inviting interior design professionals to join the platform and receive access to benefits specifically designed to help their businesses thrive. Since then, members have enjoyed Design Ambassador-exclusive pricing, personalized support, VIP sourcing assistance, and priority on items with limited availability.
Wescover is a tight-knit community of artisans and design professionals alike. With this in mind, we wanted to extend that “family” element over to respected members of the interior design community. So, we invited a select group of interior designers to become Wescover Design Ambassadors!
What is a Wescover Design Ambassador you ask?
Our Ambassadors are respected members of the interior design community who have become an extension of the Wescover team. With their valued time and input, they are helping us raise awareness of Wescover. Not to mention all the benefits of being a part of our unique Design Program.
The relationship our team has with the Design Ambassadors is highly collaborative; we encourage each and every one of them to give us feedback on our platform and products. Since the Wescover Design Ambassadors have tastes and styles across the board, we’ve been able to gather individual recommendations for artists and creators they’re most fond of. Their suggestions have led us to discover new artisans to join the Wescover team – more fabulous, handmade design finds for us all to enjoy.

Our Ambassadors recently shared some of their favorite gift picks for the holidays. In the coming months, we look forward to introducing you to each of our Design Ambassadors so you can get to know them better. They will be curating special collections of their favorite Wescover pieces and sharing some behind the scenes sneak peaks of their upcoming projects.
Last but not least, they will also be sharing some tips on how working with Wescover has helped them source unique, high-quality pieces for their clients.

Sergio’s firm specializes in creating brands, interiors, retail stores, and furniture. In a world where everything is changing all the time, we need to develop design solutions that are sustainable, materially diverse, ethical, and politically informed.
We also need to make sure that they will last both functionally and aesthetically. You can do so by making sure its design is a metaphor for the world at this precise moment.
“The pandemic has condensed 5 or more years of technological progress into just 18 months. We used to go to Design shows, especially in Europe, to find new designs and products to use in our projects. In the last 2 years, we haven’t really been able to travel much and Wescover has helped us find new exciting products and new talent.”
