“The AATOP20 acknowledges those, who over the course of his or her interior design career, have established a body of superior work demonstrating creativity, skill and innovation. This group of professionals is recognized for their individual achievements and social consciousness in the interior design field.”
The African American Top 20 Interior Designers list would be nothing without the efforts put forth by those that help to comprise it. Each of these designers, with their distinctive styles and relentless work ethics, are nothing short of commendable. They take on projects in some of the most luxurious places and are bringing personalities to life with every sketch and concept. But a job well done is a job done with gratitude, humility and appreciation. It is the generous referrals and support from colleagues and clients that contributed to the nominations for the Top 20 List since its beginning.
We aim to continue to provide this list as a community resource that can be accessed by others who aim to carve out their own space in the design community. These designers stand ready and proud to represent the mission of BIDN and be exemplars in their own right. The designers are at the forefront, in support of each other and the movement.
