CEO, December 5

On the December episode of CEO, host Lee Cullum talks with Emily Summers, president & CEO of Emily Summers Design Associates, who shares her approach to award-winning interior design. “I think people can enjoy things more if there are not too many of them, so each piece has a place and a balance,” she said. “I think there’s a serenity that comes in spare-ness.” Learn how Summers is teaming up with HKS on Hall Arts, a new high-rise residence coming to the Dallas Arts District. Summers says opening her Dallas gallery, Studio 54, gives her a venue to showcase her favorite designers and artists.
