October 11th Vendor Fair!

Life Designs Rep Amy Lynn held a vendor show for us at the Marriott Courtyard in Shelton where she showed us her many lines available to designers only.  With so many wonderful resources to choose from it can be overwhelming even to designers!

Amy brought us some unexpected lines to us with great reputations and quick turnaround time.  Her lines are definitely among the top and Amy is easy to work with.

For all who joined us on Tuesday, thank you for supporting your IDS Chapter!




Our September 20th meeting….

…was a lively discussion among designers, Industry Partners, and vendors. Once a year we have a “round table discussion” where we voice our successes and concerns, usually following a specific topic.
Our topic was, “Why Hire a Designer”?

Sharing advice about our businesses and practices is a natural part of the Connecticut Chapter of IDS. We are a community. We’re here to help you succeed!



CHAIR-ity Event June 9, 2016

IDS CHAIR-ity emailThank you to all who supported our charity event and helped make it a success!  We sold 9 out of 13 chairs!!! Amazing. Of course, every single chair was truly unique and amazing.

Thank you Thank you Thank you!


13 designers and artists custom designed their chairs and they were  presented in a silent auction and all proceeds will benefit the Center for Family Justice in Bridgeport, CT.


The Family Justice Center approach is based on the San Diego Family Justice Center model that opened in 2002. The model has been defined as a best practice in the field of domestic violence intervention and prevention services by the United States Department of Justice. The Center would like to create a community where there is zero tolerance of domestic abuse and sexual assault. The Family Justice Center can help make this vision a reality.
