IIDA Texas Oklahoma Chapter

Each year the IIDA selects one firm in three size categories to receive a Pinnacle Award. This award represents the highest honor the IIDA Texas Oklahoma Chapter can bestow upon a design firm. It is granted only to firms that have consistently contributed to the highest aspirations of the profession of interior design, to the community and to IIDA. REES won the 2016 Pinnacle award in the medium firm category.

REES also won the 2017 IIDA’s Best in City Center award for Oklahoma City. The Best in City Center award recognized the Mercy Coletta Building project for excellence in interior design and architecture.

The 2017 Solomon Andrew Layton Firm of the Year Award was presented to REES for distinguishing itself over the past five years, to the betterment of the profession and community, through leadership, vision and design. This is the second time REES has won the Solomon Andrew Layton Award.
