Tradeshow Booth Inspiration: Parrott Design Studio



Parrott Design's booth consisted of an 80sq ft in-line booth under the low ceilings at Javits. Sarah and her team designed and built the booth in Rhode Island than drove into NY via a U-haul van, saving significantly on shipping costs . The hard walls were built from 1/4" plywood with 2x3s for the frame. She has used the same 6 clip on lights from Ikea for two years, and did not use a parcan. The jute rug was literally pulled up from a room at her house (easy, convenient and free!). The rug was durable and a neutral shade that hid dirt well yet cleaned easily. Her signs and booth numbers were made from wood and cut with a CNC Router at a local shop. They sanded and spray painted the sign and hung with small nails and glue dots. Shelves were made out of wood and L-brackets purchased at Home Depot. She reused them the following year and spray painted them for a different look. Sarah purchased a vintage credenza from Craigslist and 2 chairs from - both pieces are now being used at her studio everyday. This was Sarah's second year exhibiting at the National Stationery Show. I love that blue accent wall!
