Hello Everyone!

Yesterday our CEO, Michael Umansky, was invited to speak on a panel at Houston Design Center’s Fall Market. Hosted by Heritage Texas Properties and Luxe Magazine, the panel focused on “Discovering the Millennial Generations Perspective on Real Estate and Design”. The discussion was held at the beautiful Fabric House Showroom.

Moderating the event was Kirsten Abney, VP of Corporate Services @ Heritage Texas Properties. Joining Michael on the panel were Houston interior designer, Marie Flanigan, her Millennial client Cindy Koester, Heritage Texas Properties real estate agent Bridget Martin and her client Sara Kaiser.

The discussion began with a few key statistics and facts about the Millennial’s and how their communication preferences are vastly different than that of the Baby Boomers and Generation X.
It was a great conversation focused on how Millennials utilize disruptive technology that is changing the world of interior design and real estate. They are expecting that their service providers, regardless of generational gaps, leverage the same collaborative tools that they do. Michael discussed how, at both Ohorona24.in.ua and Studio U, we embrace many different technologies such as Houzz and Pinterest to streamline our design process and collaborate more efficiently with our Millennial clients and our clients from all generations. It was a lively conversation and Michael had a great time participating!


Fabric House was a gracious host and the discussion was followed with delicious sprits and desserts!

Improving the way we collaborate with clients of every generation is a topic that Michael and the entire Ohorona24.in.ua team are passionate about. We appreciate being invited by Luxe Magazine, Heritage Texas and Design Center Houston to participate in such a great event.
