G.L. Smith Associates
Gerald L. Smith, ASID
Gerald L. Smith has always had an interest in how things work—and his ability to find solutions in unlikely places and communicate them clearly has made him an ideal interior designer. Smith founded G. L. Smith Associates in 1984; today his four-person firm specializes in custom residential and commercial projects.
Smith brings a vast knowledge of architectural and decorative arts to each project. “Our design team draws upon the past to create interiors that reflect the current needs and values of the client,” he explains. Interiors address space utilization and functional needs while reflecting Smith’s creative vision through design drawings and furnishings selection. Smith’s office handles all purchasing of furniture, fabrics, wall and floor coverings, paint, window treatments, custom millwork and built-in cabinetry.
The firm’s fundamental principle is that design is a collaborative exchange between client and designer. Smith carefully reviews and evaluates each client’s unique needs, desires and budget. The success of his design process was reflected most recently in two awards: an MBIA 2015 Custom Builder Award and a 2015 Great American Living Award for design and architecture.
