For the Public


Not everything you can learn about interior design comes from inside a classroom, textbook, project or test. If you want to get an insider look at the industry, learn about the top movers and shakers, start building your list of contacts, access job search tips and career postings and network with leaders in the industry - you have come to the right place.
