Co-founders Fiona Duke and Karen Knox been putting in the hours for the last few months and the day has finally arrived! Yes, today our brilliant new website goes live and we are BUZZING over at IDC HQ.
WHY THE INTERIOR DESIGN COLLECTIVE IS SO IMPORTANT
Whilst struggling to keep up with the growing demands of new clients, Fiona and Karen both identified a huge gap in the market for professional, creative and accessible interior design across the whole of the UK - their response to this was simple; The Interior Design Collective.
Accessible, client-led interior design has never been in greater demand and yet finding the right person for the job is not easy. The IDC celebrates and connects like minded designers so we, as a collective can offer great design services across the UK. We showcase talented designers who offer professional, inspirational and flexible interior design services. We shout about how wonderful they are on our website which in turn makes it easier for a potential client to connect with someone closer to home - simple!
We are so proud to showcase our wonderful designers that we've found as they are the some of the UK's most creative designers, whose own work and ethos echo our own. Independent designers working in real homes, with realistic budgets, creating unique interiors nationwide.
WHY THE IDC COMMUNITY IS ALREADY A SUCCESS
The IDC not only helps you wonderful clients find truly brilliant designers, but we are also really passionate about making sure we offer a positive and effective form of communication for our freelance community too via our private online platform.
This has already proved to be an ENORMOUS success proving that several minds are better than one..... sharing knowledge on new suppliers, new products, what's been really successful in a project, some things maybe more challenging..... learning from each other so that our experience as a designer is growing in loads of different ways and our knowledge for design being constantly enhanced. Daily shout outs, contributions and discussions between our designers, checking, querying, questioning....ensuring we have come up with the best design concept for our clients, helping to improve the way we work and approach every new project.
“Becoming part of a like minded group of professionals- all of whom share a similar outlook i.e. With an ethos that good design should be accessible to everyone and that creating spaces that have personality and flair is high up on the agenda, has been fantastic. We are a supportive group and together we are stronger. I look forward to where we are going!”

We've worked our socks off this year building the concept, the brand, the community and the website and we think it's totally AWESOME. But we realise it's not all about what we think. Now that we're all up and running we would LOVE to hear what you think of the Interior Design Collective's new website. So don't be shy.......let us know.
