James D'Auria Associates P.C. (JDA), is an architecture and interior design firm offering a wide range of design, planning, budgeting and construction supervision services for commercial and residential projects. Founded in 1974, by James D'Auria the firm has strong ties to the worlds of fashion design and retailing, having designed showrooms and stores for some of the most prestigious international fashion companies. With a staff of some 18 employees, JDA has earned a reputation as a boutique design firm, catering to the needs of design-oriented companies and individuals.

JDA works closely with each client to interpret their own aesthetic sensibility. Rather than imposing a signature style, Mr. D'Auria's team takes into account the style and personality of the client. Projects vary in style from traditional to contemporary, all the while maintaining a consistent level of sophistication. In the design of fashion showrooms, JDA strives to create a background to showcase the work of the designer.

The firm prides itself on maintaining long term relationships and a majority of their projects are for repeat customers. They have worked for Hot Sox for 23 years, Ellen Tracy for ten and Joseph Abboud and Guess for five. Other clients include Movado, Judith Ripka Jewelry, Portico Bed & Bath, Brioni and Wolford.

JDA's work has been published in Interior Design, Restaurant Design and VM+SD magazines and has won awards from the American Institute of Architects, The Institute of Store Planners, Interiors magazine, and the Institute of Business Planners.
