California Market Center becomes ASID industry partner
Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, November 5, 2012
Los Angeles - The California Market Center has become an industry partner of the American Society of Interior Designers, the country's oldest and largest professional organization for interior designers.
The move reinforces the CMC's mission to further expand design center and position the CMC as a premier West Coast destination for interior designers, architects and hospitality specifiers.
"As the core of the interior design profession, ASID is eager to welcome the prestigious California Market Center as a key participant," said Katherine Fern, president of ASID Los Angeles. "It has been long been known that Los Angeles leads design, interiors, architecture, graphics, and fashion. As a new industry partner, The CMC Design Center will synergistically extend our mutual leadership in the eyes of the public, as well throughout the design community."
"ASID is the gold standard for interior design professional designations" said Penny Haptor, of Haptor Barrett. "Haptor Barrett, as an industry partner, has always placed great value in our alliance and support of this organization. The benefits of ASID not only apply to the designers who affiliate themselves with this society but also to trade showrooms and other businesses in the design community. Ultimately this all benefits the consumer who, when looking for the professional services of an interior designer, can have the confidence that his or her designer has met the educational and professional standards of ASID.
