“This is such an exciting time for Blu Dot and Colle McVoy,” said Steve Knapp, Managing Director, Media & Data Science, Colle McVoy. “The home furnishings category has experienced explosive growth over the last two years with modern design leading the way.

About Blu Dot
Blu Dot was founded in 1997 by three designers: John Christakos, Maurice Blanks and Charlie Lazor. As they were furnishing their first homes, they found that the things they liked they couldn’t afford and the things they could afford they didn’t like — and so Blu Dot was born. Blu Dot’s collection spans multiple categories of home and office furnishings and is sold online and through Blu Dot stores in the U.S. and internationally. Their work has won numerous design awards and has been exhibited in prominent museums such as the Centre Pompidou, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, the Walker Art Center and MoMA. The company is privately held and headquartered in Minneapolis. For more information, visit BluDot.com or follow us on Pinterest and Instagram.
