ACCESS TO DESIGN – bringing design to you

The New York Design Center’s Access to Design™ program offers exclusive services to consumers, providing access to the design process, while honoring the trade.

This comprehensive resource acts as a concierge for navigating the 500,000 square feet of showrooms, and provides consumers with
information and insight into the design process. Through Access to Design™, trade-only tools are made available, and consumers are able to hire a designer for any interior design project—regardless of size.

How We Work:
Take advantage of the professional resources at the New York Design Center. Visit Suite 424 to browse some of the industry’s best designer’s portfolios, meet a design professional, and work with the Design Services Manager, dedicated to assessing your needs
and assisting on the next steps.

Discover how to navigate the building, hire a designer for one room, receive advice on NYDC showroom purchases, and allow the Design Services Manager to coordinate an introduction with a designer who can offer targeted solutions and access endless inspiration.

Want to browse the showrooms on your own?

Create an edited list of showrooms for you to visit based on your needs. Should you find just what you are looking for, a designer in Access to Design™ will be able to facilitate purchases in the trade-only showrooms.

Want to purchase a product?

Contact the Access to Design™ office to request a quote on an item in any of the NYDC’s trade-only showrooms. An Access to Design™ designer will facilitate purchases in NYDC showrooms for a purchasing fee.

Interested in working with a designer?
