The History of IDS
Founded in 1973 by the National Home Furnishings Association (NHFA) to support interior designers based within furniture stores, the Interior Design Society has long since expanded its focus. All qualified residential design professionals, including those who work in a retail environment, are welcome and encouraged to join IDS as an adjunct to their classroom education. The IDS National headquarters is located in High Point, NC, the world’s home furnishings capital.
The history of IDS Charlotte is one of remarkable progress. Over thirty years ago the IDS Carolinas Chapter was formed and include design members from North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. In 1984 this chapter reorganized into the Greater Charlotte IDS Chapter, which was more demographically located to serve residential interior designers located in the Charlotte-Metro area. About twenty professionals attended the first meeting at Ethan Allen on Independence Boulevard. Today the quality and caliber of our chapter members is proof of the continued growth of our organization in education, networking, and charitable fund-raising events.
