featured Dallas Interior Designer
|Writing about interior design can be like singing about sculpture; it’s hard to capture
the essence. But looking at the designs of David Cadwallader makes you want to try.
Since 1983, Cadwallader has been turning his keen attention for interior designs for
residential and contract clients with his practice Cadwallader Design.
|He pauses when asked the hallmarks of his style. “I think clarity and simplicity;
harmonious sensibility. I try to stay away from things that are trendy or would date,
so most of my interiors hold up for quite a while.” He offers the full range of design
services and is located in the Dallas Design District. He reflects on one of his favorite
projects to date, the renovation and redesign of the ED Stone house near
Park Lane and Meadowbrook Drive.
|“It’s an incredible architectural house built in 1958, very iconic, and the clients were
totally dedicated to doing it right-- it was a true design partnership and that is always
the best,” he said. “It’s daring and very modern...very crisp and almost stark because
of its strong lines, but the sense of warmth and human scale of it is amazing.”
|One secret to working with clients and their budgets he shared is going commercial.
“I use a lot of contract fabrics because they hold up well and a lot of times you get
much better value for the dollar because you can spend a lot less per yard to get a
durable, handsome textile.”
