Design Studio

Who we are


M Gooden Design is a boutique design studio based in Dallas, TX, primarily focusing on residential construction. Placing its inspiration comfortably between the worlds of mid-century and international modern style, M Gooden Design is quickly carving a niche and becoming recognized in this market.

We tackle projects fearlessly yet delicately.
Our design approach seeks to discover the unknown
while remembering and re-imagining what has come before.
