    Josh Marten - Stål Timber Design and Build

    Started by Josh and Sinikka Marten in 2012, Stål Timber means metal and wood in Norwegian, and they bring the beauty of both to your project and your client’s home or commercial space.

    With both woodworking and steel fabrication in house, Stål Timber specializes in bringing their client’s vision of what a project should be to a reality through collaborative design, CAD drawings for engineering and approval, and the understanding that designers are placing their trust in them to make their projects special.  

     

    Melanie Rosenburg - MASH habitat

    We are so excited to share this month’s IDS DFW May Member Spotlight: Melanie Rosenburg, Owner of MASH Habitat!

    Here is a little bit more about Melanie… 

    "I started MASH habitat with a desire to provide a full range of design services to clients who may think they don’t necessarily have the budget that generally comes with the stigma of hiring an interior designer. Memorable, Affordable, Stylish, Harmonious...that’s what MASH stands for. It’s always been important to me to be able to show people that interior design doesn’t mean they have to start completely over or that they will need to get rid of some of the things they still love...or even the things they may not love, but just can’t replace at the moment. It makes me so sad when I hear that people have been scared away from using a designer and have ended up doing it on their own just to end up frustrated and unhappy with the end result. I commonly hear, “I have some pieces I really love, but I just can’t seem to figure out how to make everything feel finished.”

    That’s where MASH habitat comes in! I love that I have been able to provide my clients with a personalized, cohesive, and planned out design process that gives them the help they need at a price point they are comfortable with.

    Very early on, I discovered IDS through one of my favorite new Industry Partners, Ashlynn Bourque!! She encouraged me to attend a meeting. I was so new and intimidated, but I truly wanted to learn from and collaborate with others in the industry. Interior Design, as an independent, can be very isolating at times and I craved collaboration. It has become so much more than just a networking group. I love the welcoming community feel that our IDS chapter has and I have loved being involved with the community outreach programs, events, and the amazing monthly meetings! Everyone around me inspires me and I appreciate all of the knowledge they share! MASH habitat has grown so much over the years in so many ways, 2020 has already proved to be an unforgettable year, I can’t wait to see what the rest of 2020 brings!"

    Thank you for all you do Melanie!

    IDS DFW President's Letter

    Hello Members of IDS DFW,
    As we approach the month of May, I find myself wondering how so much time could pass so quickly since I stepped into my role as President. Our monthly events have been at beautiful showrooms with incredibly gracious hosts. We have been inspired by leaders in the industry who gave of their time and talent to share their insights, knowledge and in many cases stunning new product lines which will inevitably become additional “go to sources” to support the work we do. With a record number of members in attendance, I see no slowdown in sight for the continued growth of the Dallas Chapter.
    There is much buzz and a great source of excitement surrounding the upcoming ART + IDS National Conference taking place in Palm Springs, CA. These four days at the luxurious Riviera Palm Springs Resort are filled with educational programs, guest speakers, round tables and networking opportunities. The final evening culminates with the IDS DotY Awards Gala (Designer of the Year) and undoubtedly, many in our chapter will be the recipients of this great honor.
     
    We have so much still to look forward to right here in Dallas with our upcoming events to include the 7th Annual Design Mix, 2nd Annual Salute to the Stars and our remaining monthly events. We will be finalizing our Community Service Project and will reach out soon to let you know how you may get involved.
     
    In closing, I would be remiss if I did not share my thoughts on the excellence of the 2019 Board of Directors. I am often asked how things are going and my response is always the same. It is going very well because of the efforts of the 2019 Board. Each member has stepped up beyond what I would have expected for the continued growth, organization, education and opportunities to be together to socialize and have fun. I could not be more grateful for their support and dedication.
     
    I look forward to seeing you soon.
