Houston Design Center Celebrates 30 Years of Fine Design

Wednesday September 23, 2015 – The Houston Design Center (7026 Old Katy Rd.) will celebrate its 30th Anniversary on Tuesday October 13th at 5PM as part of the Annual Fall Market event. The evening will be presented by Hines master-planned community, Somerset Green.

Originally named the International Design Resource Center and later shortened to the Resource Center, but by its sheer existence, this facility validated the significance and importance of Houston’s design services industry by allowing these businesses to gather under one moniker for the first time in the city’s history.

In the early 2000s, under the skillful management of new owners, the 15 acre design campus with its sprawling and inviting green spaces, transformed into the new and vibrant identity that we know today, the Houston Design Center.

Now 30 years later, the Houston Design Center houses more than 40 luxury design showrooms, offices and service providers and boasts the most extensive marketing and design professional continuing education programming in the region. With this history and its continued commitment to the industry, it is clear why the Houston Design Center is the city’s preferred destination for the best in luxury residential and commercial furnishings and products.

Honoring the Mile-Marker with the Neighbors

On the evening of October 13th the Houston Design Center will hold a Center-wide soiree to commemorate it’s anniversary that will be presented by new neighbor, Somerset Green.
