2021 Cleveland Akron Design Awards Recap

Updated: Oct 12, 2021

On the evening of September 9th, Cleveland Akron gathered together in celebration of the incredible design work created in our community. We recognized a record breaking number of submissions and nominations in a virtual awards show, broadcasted to three IIDA premier party locations around town!

We want to extend a huge thank you to all of our Ohio Kentucky Benefactors, and especially to the Benefactors that hosted premier parties: Mohawk & Hamilton Parker (at the Hamilton Parker showroom), HDA/KI (at the Twisted Olive), and Kimball (at the Inspire Workplace Interiors showroom)! Also, a huge shout out goes to our special events planning committee and day-of volunteers!

If you weren't able to enjoy the show with us, you can still catch up by watching the full video at the link below, and checking out the winning project photos on this page!

The success of the evening has already got us excited to start planning again for next year!!!
