Why Furniture: Newsletter Oct 2012

October at IMI Design

In addition to our always busy and exciting schedule of client projects, we continued our work with the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS on their Tour for Life event and had the pleasure of putting together a unique table top display at Nieman Marcus!

The Tour for Life event, which took place this past Saturday and Sunday, showcased eight magnificent homes in Paradise Valley and Silverleaf North Scottsdale for a cause.  All proceeds from this year’s home tour locally supports the fight against HIV/AIDS while celebrating the work of the Valley’s most notable architects, home builders and interior designers. We are so grateful to have been a part of the planning process!

Through our partnership with LUXE Magazine, we became involved with a special week-long installment at Nieman Marcus in Scottsdale.  The tabletop display showcased a new line of Juliska products and we had a blast putting it all together!

We’re also excited to have been featured recently amongst many of Arizona’s best designers in an article in Scottsdale Living that highlighted all of the 2012 ASID Design Excellence Award winners! You can view the article here.

What Made Anita Design Furniture


A designer, like an artist, sees everything – line, silhouette, color, texture, material and more.  In engaging her artistic senses with the beauty of the world around her, Anita has chosen to channel her experiences into a creative outlet to be shared.  That outlet consists of creating beautiful spaces for others that are filled with inspired furniture designs.  Anita firmly believes that good design evokes a positive emotional response and thus, the Anita Lang Signature furniture line is the next step in her evolution of sharing that positive experience with the world.


From the selection of environmentally responsible materials to the collaboration with morally aligned artisans, the Anita Lang Signature furniture line, under Interior Motives, Inc. is produced with a consciousness of truth, authenticity and the highest caliber of design.

Inspire Foundation: Inception and Purpose

Inspire Foundation Logo

Passionate interior design uplifts the human spirit.  In 2006, IMI Design, LLC and Interior Motives, Inc. established its nonprofit corporation, The Inspire Foundation, Inc., to share this powerful aspect of design with the local community.

The mission of the Inspire Foundation is twofold; in that it provides an annual contest opportunity for local young interior design talent to be showcased and assists with a need in the community.

First, our team selects a community organization or family that could benefit from complementary design work that they would not otherwise be able to afford.

Then, we partner with interior design schools at local higher education venues and universities as well as the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) to ultimately sponsor a scholarship and award internships for students who show the most passion and talent for the profession.

There’s still a few days left to nominate!  Please submit your nominations via email to now through October 31st.


Next month…

We’ll be finishing up an exciting project up in Prescott, continuing work on a project at our second home base in Tahoe and choosing beneficiary finalists for the 2013 Inspire Foundation project!
We’ll also give you a peek at another collection from Anita’s furniture line and recap the Tour for Life!
Here’s to another successful month,
The Team at IMI Design

 Great Room
This remodel updated the home with new finishes and unified the large open areas of the residence.
 Previously, the Great Room, Dining Room, Kitchen and Bar areas were separated by various flooring materials; the remodel achieved a unified aesthetic by running limestone flooring throughout the space.
Master Bedroom
The client’s love for entertaining required large sitting areas, including a built in banco under the window.
The fireplace was completely redone and the TV was hidden by sliding art panels. The art panels were created by a close friend of the client who was inspired by the beautiful mountain views seen when looking out the Great Room window.
