Membership in IFDA


The International Furnishings and Design Association is a worldwide professional alliance of leaders representing the diverse industries that constitute the universe of residential and commercial furnishings and design.

Founded in 1947, our members are executives of companies that manufacture, distribute, design, write about or sell floor coverings, lighting, decorative fabrics, accessories and building products.  Others are engaged in graphic, residential and contract design, education, publishing, licensing, marketing, and communications.

This scope is what makes IFDA and the benefits of membership totally unique.  View the list of IFDA Member Benefits.
