Duke Ratliff, the editor-in-chief of HFN, has reported on the home furnishings industry since 1993.

He enjoys traveling to numerous domestic—and occasionally, international—trade shows. He feels that the perfect combination of a great product and a creative, attention-getting marketing plan is a thing of beauty.

She also directs HFN's housewares coverage and covers the cutlery category. An avid reader, Allison is eager to talk to anyone and everyone about the latest book they are reading.
