Carly Hepler

Showroom Manager
Forward Space


If you asked Carly two years ago if she would be advocating for the contract furniture industry, she would have told you there was no chance… but here we are!  After a few years of exploration in and out of the industry, she’s back, she loves her job – and the industry.


Like many others who ‘’end up’’ in the industry, Carly was introduced to the business because of her father, who is a CEO in the industry.  Besides contract furniture, Carly has also worked in hospitality, and that took her to Bangkok where she lived for four months.


Outside of work, Carly is a Mom, a runner, and a writer.  She’s passionate about sharing her experiences, and advice on breaking into – and being successful in the industry.
