A blank canvas comprised of brilliant white brick walls, 17-ft. ceilings and a dramatic custom glass staircase, Chez Chicago presents the perfect backdrop for designers to visualize the future of design and celebrate the many ways in which design transforms lives. The evening will also honor the chapter’s 40th anniversary and recognize the top leaders who have paved the way in the local design industry.

The soiree will begin on the mezzanine level with cocktails and networking followed by a casual, theatre-style awards presentation, during which ASID-IL members, International Interior Design Association – Illinois chapter members and registered interior designers in the state of Illinois who have excelled in their fields will be recognized in the Contract, Residential, Historic Restoration and Product Design categories. Hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and dancing will follow the awards presentation to unite audiences in a truly memorable and intimate fashion.
