Interior designers Jennifer Moore and Sandi Rudy from CTA Austin, partnering with two members from local firm NoackLittle, recently participated in the second annual “rEvolution reDesign Gala.” The event, put on by the Texas/Oklahoma chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), invites interior design and architecture firms to create room vignettes that are then donated to a local charity. This year’s recipient was the Social Design Alliance, an organization that provides design services and furniture to Austin families in need.
Guests in attendance were provided with cocktails, gourmet food, raffle prizes, and the opportunity to vote on their favorite designs throughout the evening.
CTA and NoackLittle’s entry competed in the “Child Bedroom” category. Teams were provided an 8-by-8-foot space and a bed frame to refinish, and were allowed to select fabric for a bedspread and carpet tiles from which to create a custom rug. All other room items were refurbished from existing pieces or constructed by the team.
“It was great to compete with other firms but ultimately come together as one collective contribution for such a wonderful initiative,” Moore said. “Everyone took the task very seriously and created some amazing spaces.”
On Thursday, Oct. 2, the CTA/NoackLittle room was delivered to its recipient, a 12-year-old girl from a family of six Iraqi refugees.
“By far my favorite aspect was helping to install the room we designed, and meeting the amazing young lady who will get to call it home,” Moore added.
