Currier & Associates, Inc., a full-service interior design firm specializing in creating enriching environments for living, healing and working, announced it was ranked in the top 25 of the largest interior design firms in Massachusetts.

The listing, which appeared in the February 17-23 issue of The Boston Business Journal, ranked interior design firms according to their billings within Massachusetts last year. Currier's billings for its 2011 Massachusetts projects of $727,200 resulted in this ranking.

Examples of completed projects include the Dudley Square Senior Housing for Central Boston Elder Services, the renovation of Jewish Geriatrics' skilled nursing center in Longmeadow, MA and Healthbridge Management's Essex Park in Beverly, MA.

Currier is one of two free-standing interior design firms on the list, ranked number 22. The competitors, some of which are international companies, are architectural firms which offer interior design capabilities as part of their overall services. Their billings within Massachusetts ranged from $12.0 million to $705,000.
