Design Exchange, Inc., an award-winning full-service interior design firm founded in 1981, creates beautifully individualized environments for commercial and residential clients. Each project begins with an attentive evaluation of the client needs, desires and preferences. Concepts are then developed to provide unique and innovative solutions to enhance the homes and workplaces of each client.
The design team is highly educated, each designer having studied interior design and earned or is working towards NCIDQ certification as Certified Interior Designer, the foremost certification in the industry. The designers’ skills encompass all phases of the design process, including planning, purchasing, custom treatments, and project management from inception to installation.
Respect for the natural environment is a part of all design decisions. The company’s work exhibits a sophisticated use of color, texture, and fine furnishings. Design Exchange provides concept drawings, elevation drawings, sketches, and specifications for client review. Purchasing services are available for all interior furnishings, including fixtures, appliances, lighting, upholstered furniture, case pieces, custom furniture, custom window treatments, rugs and carpeting, decorative painting, art, and accessories. The professional design team prides itself on integrity, service, and project management and always strive to exceed client expectations. Additionally, wherever possible, designers reduce the environmental impact both in the firm’s own office, as well as client projects.
Design Exchange has many industry affiliations, including American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). The designers are very active in the ASID Washington Metro region chapter.
It takes more than talent to create unique, well-designed, livable homes and effective, inspiring commercial environments. It requires good business practices, project management, quality resources, and a dedicated team that hears, visualizes, and accomplishes the client’s goals. After 34 years, that continues to be the Design Exchange mission.
