Event description

Description

The ASID Texas Chapter Dallas Design Community invites Emerging Interior Designers to join them for the April Emerging Designers Peer Group event: An Evening of Conversation with Mary Anne Smiley, ASID. We will meet with Mary Anne to learn about her design career and philosophy. You will not want to miss the opportunity to ask questions and discuss our profession in her intimate and colorful home.

One of the first designers registered in the State of Texas after passing the NCIDQ exam, Mary Anne Smiley is a member of ASID, and is qualified in AutoCAD. She has been featured in a myriad of publications and is the recipient of numerous awards for excellence in design. Mary Anne has been on the Best Designers in Dallas list since 2007 and was celebrated in 2013 as one of the FAB FIVE TOP DESIGNERS IN DALLAS by Luxe and Roche Bobois.

Mary Anne's love of all things creative and artistic began as a child and included primitive architectural drawings. Upon enrolling in Architecture in the 60’s she was informed by the Dean that “women don’t enroll in architecture.” Undaunted, she enrolled in Fine Art and Interior Design. Her career has taken her coast to coast. She is known for her use of pure color and pearl finish backgrounds, and for her avant-garde use of contemporary art. Her AutoCAD skills have given her the ability to design custom furnishings when unique and creative solutions are required. This often results in recognition for product design, and sometimes in collaboration with various artists.

Organizer Dallas Design Community of the ASID Texas Chapter

Organizer of ASID TX Dallas DC April Emerging Designer Event

The Dallas Design Community is one of six design communities that make up the ASID Texas Chapter, which is part of the larger American Society of Interior Designers [ASID], a community of people – designers, industry representatives, educators and students – committed to interior design. Through education, knowledge sharing and advocacy, the Society strives to advance the interior design profession and, in the process, to demonstrate and celebrate the power of design to positively impact and change people’s lives. Of the Society’s 24,000 Practitioners, 20% practice Residential design, 30% practice Commercial design, and 50% practice both.

The ASID Texas Chapter represents 1,700+ Practitioner, Educator, Student and Industry Representative members throughout the state of Texas excluding the greater Houston area, which is covered by the ASID Texas Gulf Coast Chapter. Since the Texas Chapter is quite large both in membership and in geographic expanse, most of the programming throughout the year takes place in the Design CommunitiesAustin, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, San Antonio and West Texas.

Our members work in both the residential and commercial fields, either as sole proprietors or as part of small or large firms. Within the state and around the world, they provide valuable services and useful products to their clients. Our members strive to improve the quality of life for all of their clients through the creation of aesthetically pleasing, thoughtful design that takes into account the health, safety and welfare of the public.
