Welcome to the Portland Interior Design Society. We know you have a lot of options when it comes to joining a trade organization but we’re pretty proud of our group. We think when you visit you’ll discover the magic of our approach, our enthusiasm and our camaraderie. We consistently hear from visiting designers and vendors that our organization is a breath of fresh air. We invite you to come see it firsthand.
We share a belief in working with both trade partners AND other design professionals. This makes the Portland IDS a place to collaborate, to grow, to learn and to have fun while doing so. The board and I are working hard on behalf of the membership to ensure that our:
- Designers receive access to quality resources, ongoing education and opportunities to share their passion with the community.
- Partners in Design (Vendors) have lots of opportunities to communicate first hand with designers and receive solid support within the organization.
We started our chapter in September of 2008 after seeing the need for an organization that embraces all aspects of the design community – a place for the professional designer, decorator, stager, re-designer and industry design partner to meet and learn from one another.
We know that whether this is your first career or your last, you have skills and experiences to bring to the table. Our philosophy and one shared, we hope with all our members is that we’re not competition…we’re colleagues.
