I recently stumbled upon a great resource for all things Industrial Chic.  Hudson Goods was started by Karl Miller who left his high-powered Wall Street job in Nov 2008, decided to follow his passion and create a company focused on making and selling Industrial-style furniture, lighting and home furnishings.

I found an interesting interview about Miller and how he made the leap from the corporate world to designing and manufacturing furniture.  Below is just an excerpt that pertains to blogging – both the significance blogs have in the new marketplace, and also a mention of Hudson's blog.  Read more of the interview here.

We talked at length about your successful marketing strategies.  Give our readers some specifics about which of these has been the most useful in managing to stay competitive with places like Pottery Barn.

"Although on a smaller scale, I advertise in some of the same places as Pottery Barn on BizRate, Shopzilla, etc. and undercut them on price.  I also utilize Google Ads but I have also put myself and my face out there to make my product more personal than the generic Pottery Barn by using youtube videos, facebook, and more importantly the bloggers world.  I started a blog at HudsonGoodsblog.com on home design which I love and run frequent giveaway contests on fellow blog sites which has proven to be very successful."

I just thought I would include a photo of Hudson Goods owner, Karl Miller, who is mentioned in several articles as being recently single…  Ladies in the New York area…just saying.
