2023 & 2024 Regional Liaisons


Omar Zaater, Allied ASID, joins the ASID as a Liason after building an impressive resume of residential interior design projects, many of which have earned ASID Interior Design Awards over the years - most recently earning the “Best of” for the Residential category in 2023.

In his current position as Designer / Project Director at architecture + interiors firm k YODER design, Omar spearheads luxury renovation projects offering creativity, depth of experience with cabinetry construction and materials, patience, and high-level client service. Working alongside architect Kevin Yoder, Omar has the opportunity to flex his creativity beyond interiors to architectural design and preservation, working on historically significant modern homes by Louis Kahn, I.M. Pei, Vincent Kling and Mitchell/Giurgola and more.

In his early career, Omar worked with leading regional kitchen and bath design/build firms conducting consultations, leading the design process, budgeting, and managing construction. He continued his career as a project manager and the sales rep face of a remodeling firm where he broadened his expertise in labor and construction estimating and material costs and earned National Association of the Remodeling Industry Contractor of the Year Awards for Best Residential Kitchen and Best Bathroom.

An intuitive designer, Omar’s design interest traces back to his early years where he was always rearranging the furniture of his childhood bedroom. A home renovation project enabled the 16-year-old Omar to work directly with a contractor to realize his creative vision for the first time. The early exposure led him toward interior design, and he’s been confidently expanding his skills ever since.

Omar holds a Bachelor of Science from the Art Institute of Philadelphia’s CIDA-accredited interior design program, where his student work earned recognition in the National Kitchen and Bath Association student design program and was awarded the Academic Achievement Awards upon graduating.

Omar enjoys making music with friends, playing tennis and bike riding, and spending quality time with his daughter Kiera and wife Katie where they reside in Fishtown, Philadelphia.
