We are thrilled to share that the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) has selected Dani Sheley as its 2023 Member of the Year. IIDA shared the news on their website earlier this month.

Each year, IIDA recognizes members demonstrating outstanding commitment, passion, professionalism and dedication to the IIDA and the design community through its 'Of the Year Awards.'

Based in our St. Louis office, Dani is a proven interior designer regularly working with clients to shape functional, healthy, collaborative and impactful interior spaces. Since 2019, she has served on the IIDA Gateway Chapter Board of Directors, and is currently serving as the immediate past president through June 2023.


  • Dani is a leader in every sense of the word…she has been an invaluable team member at CannonDesign for both her intellectual and cultural contributions. She collaborates with other design disciplines with ease, elevating our interior design brand both internally and externally. She creates positive impacts around her before you ever knew they were needed.

As part of the Gateway Chapter Board of Directors, Dani values her time mentoring students and the next generation of interior designers. When not creating dynamic interior spaces and/or helping advance the design profession, Dani enjoys attending musicals, hiking, playing board games, and spending time with family, friends, and her Goldendoodle Magnolia.

Dani will be officially recognized at the upcoming NeoCon conference in Chicago this June 12-14.
