Robert Ledingham Legacy Fund

  bob-ledingham_photo.bmpThe Robert Ledingham Legacy Foundation was established in 2013 by IDC and IDIBC to honour the memory of Robert (Bob) Ledingham, one of Canada’s most celebrated interior designers.

Robert Ledingham’s contribution to the interior design profession was immeasurable. He was instrumental in advancing the profession locally, nationally, and internationally, and was a leader in the development of the interior design educational accreditation process in North America.

Bob was widely recognized throughout his distinguished career. He is the recipient of more than 30 awards for his designs, and was inducted into Western Living magazine's Hall of Fame. In 2011, Bob was awarded the prestigious Leadership Award of Excellence by the Interior Design Institute of British Columbia (IDIBC), Interior Designers of Canada (IDC), and the International Interior Design Association (IIDA). His alma mater, the University of Manitoba, awarded him a Honourary Doctorate in 2006. Bob was elected to the College of Fellows of IDIBC, IDC and IIDA.

Colleagues praised him as a dedicated, committed supporter, a voice of reason for the interior design profession and respective business communities and a dedicated mentor for future generations of interior designers.

In keeping with the spirit of Bob’s passion for education, his legacy foundation scholarship program will support interior design post-graduate study.
