March at IMI Design


It’s been an incredibly busy first quarter and the momentum just keeps building here at IMI Design. We are truly fortunate to have clients and trade partners who allow us the chance to express our passion for uplifting design in each and every project. Below are just a few of the things going on at the moment.

Inspire Foundation Selects Beneficiary! 

IMI and FBC Staff
The  Inspire Design Foundation selected the Foundation for Blind Children as the 2013 Beneficiary!   The beneficiary was announced at our February 28th “Through the Looking Glass” event.  The Foundation for Blind Children will receive an interior design “make-over” of its East Valley Campus.


“This unique project provides an incredible opportunity for interior design professionals to show the world how interior design can be felt through all the senses, not just sight.” said Anita Lang.  “The unique challenges of this project will create a new paradigm for us to work in, to bring a powerful transformation that is functional and enjoyable to the children, their parents, teachers and visitors alike.”


“We look forward to working with Anita Lang and the Inspire Design Foundation and raising the awareness about this undertaking,” said Marc Ashton, CEO of the Foundation for Blind Children. “With research showing that the first five years as the most critical developmental period, having our East Valley campus be transformed both aesthetically and functionally enhances our students’ learning environment tremendously. We’re so grateful on having been selected and we’re looking forward to Anita’s magic.”


The Foundation for Blind Children provides resources and assistance to anyone with vision loss.  Please visit the Foundation online to learn more.

IMI Studio’s recent project lands cover story! 

We are so pleased to announce that a recent project for which IMI Design was the interior designer, was selected by Tahoe Quarterly Magazine for the 10th Annual Mountain Home Awards!    Not only was our project selected for this prestigious award, it was also chosen as the cover of the magazine!

We are honored and grateful to have been a part of the team creating the beautiful space that was awarded this distinction.  Our team worked diligently with meticulous attention to detail during every step of the project – from planning to implementation.  However, this project would never have been possible without the amazing clients who had faith in us and the project team as a whole to see this project through. The builder, Dianda Construction, as well as a multitude of vendors such as Woodesign, John Brooks, Inc., Heather and Fred Studios, Slater Sculpture and so many more. The beautiful photography for this ad was provided by Dino Tonn Photography. Please stop by our office to pick up a copy of the magazine, or if you are in the Tahoe area, you can find a copy in a local bookstore.

In other news…

While we are incredibly passionate about the work that we do here, we could never do it alone. We recently finished a project here in Scottsdale in which we were so fortunate to work with Allan  Rosenthal of Linear Fine Wood Working. The level of craftsmanship and professionalism Allan and his team brought to the table was a delight and the finished product was absolutely amazing. We will be posting photos on our Facebook page soon.


If you are flying a private jetliner anytime soon, take time to read the recent issue of JetSet Magazine.  You’ll find us featured in article topics ranging from projects to design philosophy.   We’re also going to be featured in the Arizona Republic this April so look for us there!

With many new projects recently completed, our team has finalized entries for the annual ASID Design Excellence Awards.  Reviewing the work completed last year is a great point to reflect in gratitude for the amazing projects that we are a part of.
