Anthropologies Store Designer



Who is the antiques buyer and gallery director for a store like Anthropologie? Well I ran across  interview with Keith Johnson, who holds this amazing position. Johnson's creative eye landed him a job that sends him on around the world on  flea market expeditions where he shops for the store, brings back one-of-a-kind items, and chooses the pieces that will inspire Anthropologie's new home decor lines...
He's done an amazing job!
