Testimonials

A local customer used the RNDD website to map out a day’s shopping trip, visiting us and Studio 41 due to our close proximity. Another customer visiting from Michigan entered our showroom with the RNDD map printed directly from the website. RNDD provides a local attraction as well as reach that goes beyond the Chicagoland area.

Mike Cao, Casa Spazio and President of RNDD

RNDD is a wonderful Chicago organization. Our participation as a design firm keeps us connected to fellow interior designers and upscale vendors with whom we share industry insights and challenges. This is such a supportive membership which contributes to our growth and success.

Michael Del Piero, Michael Del Piero Good Design

I remember when RNDD was brand new and there were only 4-5 of us sitting around a table planning how to grow the group. Fast forward 9 years later, watching RNDD grow into what it is today has really been amazing. We have loved being able to connect with so many different types of people within the design community and collaborate on some of River North’s most fabulous events. We would never have met a lot of these industry professionals, had it not been for RNDD.

Emily Roberts, Studio 41

We have been members of the River North Design District since its founding and highly recommend it! The member meetings are an excellent opportunity to network with neighboring showrooms and the designers who frequent them. The events, which include a variety of educational panels and design industry social gatherings, increase showroom traffic and interior designer exposure to the high-end consumers in the River North area. RNDD referrals have definitely grown our business. We love being a member!
