About Annie Since founding her eponymous design firm in 2011, Annie Downing Interiors has completed projects in Austin, San Antonio, Laredo, Houston, Washington, D.C. & Arkansas. She has developed a reputation for creating sophisticated, unique and bespoke interiors that focus on details. ADI is a full-service firm that specializes in all aspects of interior design from the initial conceptual phase through the construction process. Over the past five years, Downing has expanded Annie Downing Interiors to include a design showroom with a personally-curated inventory of vintage furniture, many of which have designer provenance, accessories, and newly upholstered pieces. Her showroom is located in downtown Austin near the growing "design district." It is a destination for the design trade and the consumer with an eye for the sophisticated and fresh. When not focusing on design Annie spends time with her husband and three children. About Marie Marie Richards provides project and office management support for Annie Downing Interiors. Originally from Buffalo, New York, Marie is an Austin transplant since 2005. Marie received an Associate’s degree of Applied Science with a focus in Interior Architecture and Design from Villa Maria College in Buffalo NY. For the past 14 years she has received a wealth of experience in the design industry in all capacities. From a design assistant, to a designer for a model home merchandising company, to sales on the wholesale side of interior design, she has become well rounded not only in the interior design field but, also within the design community. Her love for the outdoors and a healthy lifestyle has made Austin a great fit for her family. She loves to unwind with her husband Jonathan and two fur babies Pebbles and Beau.
