Each year, IIDA recognizes a group of members for their exceptional contributions to the interior design industry and community, and who demonstrate outstanding professional achievements, impact, and contributions to the interior design profession and industry. These members are mentors, educators, and leaders, and are bestowed the highest honor that IIDA awards, the honor of being named to the IIDA College of Fellows.

Our 2021 College of Fellows is IIDA’s first-ever group of all women. Through a three-part series of one-on-one conversations with these remarkable women we share their important work and achievements as they discuss design, life, leadership and beyond.
