    Why Join?

    The Interior Design Society brings together designers from all facets of interiors who desire to sharpen their competitive edge, build their business sense, advance their career, and serve their community through charitable projects.

    If this sounds like something that interests you, then we would love for you to attend a meeting to see our Chapter in action.

    Whether you are new to residential interior design or someone who has been in the field forever, the Interior Design Society has much to offer.

    IDS members work in many settings and come to the organization with a variety of experience and educational backgrounds.

    What we all have in common is a passion for beautiful design, a thirst for knowledge and a resolute commitment to help clients create the home of their dreams.
