Promoting the recognition of interior design’s influence.

The Lester Dundes Memorial Fund established in 2004 serves to gain wider recognition for interior design’s influence and importance on quality of life. The fund honors industry leader and longtime publisher of Interior Design magazine, Lester Dundes. Dundes was a tireless advocate for the design industry, and supporter of interior designers, architects and manufacturers. He established the prestigious and legendary “Hall of Fame” to honor top designers in the industry, and created the highly successful “Corporate Interiors” books.

The Lester Dundes Memorial Fund does not accept unsolicited requests for financial support and will determine and announce program opportunities as they are available.
