IFDAlogoCANTON, Ga.-Joseph Danielsen, a junior at Iowa State University of Science and Technology, has won this year’s Raymond Waites Design Competition with his design of a traditional/eclectic indoor gourmet kitchen with attached outdoor entertainment area and pool. He will receive $5,000 as well as a trip to next month’s High Point Market, where he will be the guest of honor at a reception hosted by Waites and co-sponsored by the Educational Foundation of the International Furnishings and Design Association.

The reception will take place on Monday, Oct. 19, at the 200 Steele building and will display Danielsen’s entry, as well as others. Danielsen will also be treated to exclusive tours of showrooms and other events during market.

Danielsen’s entry included doric columns, Palladian windows and doors, a relaxing pool and spa area, beautiful eating areas and practical but stylish furniture, the IFDA said. He included architectural details in both the exterior and interior spaces, symmetrical balance and modern conveniences combined with classic elegance.

The competition is the third and final Raymond Waites Design Competition to be sponsored by the Educational Foundation of IFDA.

Danielsen said he will use the money when he studies in Paris for the spring semester. He plans to pursue a career in high-end residential interior design.
