Interior Design Society & Sustainable Furnishings Council collaborate

The Interior Design Society and Sustainable Furnishings Council have partnered for the Sustainable Design Designer of the Year award.

After working together for several years, IDS and SFC are expanding on their collaboration to include other initiatives to educate the home furnishings industry on how to use and feature sustainable products in their businesses.

The Sustainable Design award was established to recognize designers who create high quality, environmentally conscious spaces, and encourages designers to #getyourgreenon. Winning designs take into consideration the principles of social, economic and ecological sustainability.

There will be a Sustainability Essentials webinar offered before the award submissions period to interested interior designers and industry professionals. The CEU course, “What is Sustainable Furniture Anyway,” will cover what sustainability issues are impacted as choices are made in our furnishings.

Members of IDS and SFC are eligible to enter their projects beginning on Wednesday, February 3, 2021, and there will be a 20{911ea05452e114f1778c76ca86733b6032c246f8f651bb1f01d12abf04b54efb} discount offered on all submissions through March 3rd.
