About Us

designTEN1, LLC (DT1) is an interior design company started in 2010 by Jennifer Akerman.  Jennifer brought a style of mixing classic, timeless accessories with current modern lines and colors to create a fresh, elegant style; a style she coined "Modassic".  Modassic is about using existing, timeless pieces in a fresh new manner.


DT1 opened designTEN1 Interiors in historic Downtown McKinney Square in McKinney, TX in 2011 and recently closed it in 2015 due to the overwhelming interior design business.  DT1 Interiors was an extension of our Modassic point of view.  DT1 Interiors consisted of classic accessories with a fresh new appeal, custom upholstery and design services.  In addition, DT1 is a boutique that has gifts for your four legged friends, babies or grandchildren, wedding gifts, fun unique gifts and jewelry for yourself.  designTEN1 still does all the above today through design consultations.
