Business conditions at interior design firms remain consistent as February’s Interior Design Billings Index was below 50 for the third straight month (any score above 50 indicates an increase in billings, a score below 50 indicates a decrease in billings). The index score of 46.0 in February was essentially unchanged from January’s score of 45.4. The three-month moving average also remains in contractionary territory at 46.6 compared to January’s 48.7. The new project inquiry category was also unchanged in February at 54.6 but in positive territory. Index values in the new project category have been above 50 for five of the last six months, allowing the three-month moving average to stay constant at 52.9 in February.
