Interior Design Billings and Inquiries Indexes
Starting the Year on a Positive Note
Both the billings and inquiries indices improved at firms in January (billings score by 5.5 points, to a score of 57.8; inquiries index by 3.4 points, to a score of 60.2). Business conditions continue to grow at firms in the Midwest and Southern regions of the U.S. Firms in the Western region of the country are still experiencing growth in January but at a slower rate than the uptick seen in the last few months of 2014. The Northeast region has continued to see backsliding since October, most certainly as a reflection of severe weather. The positive conditions are evident across all size firms (scores above 50). Except for the entertainment sector, business conditions continued to progress across all specializations in January. The outlook for the next six months remains very positive.
