Say Hello, Gracie: ASID Annual Meeting

The annual meeting of the American Society of Interior Deigners, New York Metro Chapter, was held at Gracie Mansion on Thursday, Sept. 22. Several members of Designers Collaborative–Carl D’Aquino, Ron Bricke, Glenn Gissler–attended, and Susan Huckvale Arann gave a terrific presentation on the important work of IDLNY (Interior Designers for Legislation in New York), a coalition dedicated to advance, promote, and protect the right to practice interior design in this state. The event took place in the elegant ballroom, but Jamie Drake, one of the evening’s honorees, gave us a guided tour of the whole house. It was a thrill to get an insider look at the bold and stylish work Jamie has done on refurbishing the historic mansion. A great evening!
