2016 Distinguished Leadership Awarded to Chambers


Baltimore, MD | September 19, 2016

Chambers, a Baltimore-based 360° club planning, architecture, and interior design firm specializing in private clubs, was recently honored with the 2016 Distinguished Leadership Award by ASID’s Maryland Chapter.

The Distinguished Leadership Award recognizes a company, organization, or individual for providing exceptional service to the Maryland interior design community. It is typically awarded to an entity that has shown dedication to furthering the interior design profession through various initiatives and contributions.

Chambers has worked closely with ASID’s Maryland and Washington Metro Chapters over the past year, hosting a guided tour of the Montgomery Park Building and our Baltimore design studio. Chambers’ Megan Koets, Senior Interior Designer, currently serves as President of the Washington Metro Chapter.

“With roots to AID/ASID back to the 1930s with Mr. J. H. Leroy Chambers, this award becomes especially meaningful to the company,” notes Bob Hickman, Chairman of the Board and past Director of Interior Design. The award will be presented to Chambers at the Annual Gala on October 5th, which will take place on a stunning cruise on the Spirit Yacht through Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Hickman will be in attendance, as well as other members of the company’s Baltimore interior design studio. Those wishing to attend the event can purchase a ticket online through ASID.

Chambers was established in 1899 as a painting and wallpaper company in Baltimore and has been working in the private club industry since their first engagement with Baltimore Country Club in the mid 1940’s. Today they are the largest hospitality design firm in the nation with a singular purpose of working with private clubs. Chambers is also a Corporate Alliance Partner of the Club Managers Association of America, providing significant support to the continuing education and advancement of the private club industry. Chambers takes a 360⁰ approach to club planning and design because they know that everything is connected. Everything matters.
