Overview

Overview

Interior Designers Institute says

Interior Designers Institute is a private interior design college, which was founded in 1984 in Corona del Mar, California. The steady growth of the college can be attributed in part to its reputation for excellence, the need for a high caliber private college and its location in the heart of Orange County, California.

Orange County is unique in terms of affluence, progressiveness and overall acceptance of the importance of interior design. Design opportunities abound in the area, which has a multitude of interior design firms, as well as its own design center, Laguna Design Center. It is also in close proximity to the Pacific Design Center, one of the largest in the country. These factors have had a profound influence in framing the Institute's progressive approach to education and its job placement.
