Washington, D.C. (Sept. 30, 2013) | The American Society of Interior Designers today announced its successful work with the Massachusetts Interior Design Coalition as well as with the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) to express the importance of the interior design profession at the Massachusetts State House in Boston last week.

On Wednesday, Sept. 25, more than 150 Massachusetts-based interior designers rallied to inform State Legislators about the practice of interior design, the positive impact of interior design, and how the future of the profession will boost the economy of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

As a result from the incredible efforts of design professionals educating their legislators, Governor Deval Patrick (D) declared Interior Design Day for the state of Massachusetts and made it the first state to proclaim a designated day for the interior design industry. Numerous interior design professionals, students, and industry partners were thrilled to celebrate Interior Design Day.
