Chapter Launch

It’s official. Last week at Madison Furniture’s Design Side we started a local Portland, Oregon chapter of the Interior Design Society (IDS).

Over 35 independent interior designers were in attendance at the event. Attendees also included several trade vendors who work with the interior design community including Area Floors, Gallerie Nouveau, DSC Window Fashions, Norwalk Furniture, Eastbank Interiors, and Architectural Elegance. Other national members of the IDS joining the local chapter to date include Sherwin Williams and Lamps Plus.

The IDS is an independent national organization founded in 1973. One of the country’s largest design organizations, it is dedicated to serving the residential interior design industry. The IDS offers members community, education and business support. The IDS National headquarters is located in High Point, NC, the world’s home furnishings capital.

Our goal in starting a local Portland design chapter is to provide resource information, networking, ongoing training, and building a supportive environment to grow all our businesses.
