We are ARIDO, the professional body for interior designers in Ontario.
Interior design is about more than aesthetics. It's about finding creative design solutions for interior environments while supporting the health, safety, and the well-being of the people who use those spaces.
Join the conversation on Interior Design this October!
Sit down for a Design Consultation with a Registered Interior Designer to have your design questions answered, hear about emerging topics and trends during the Speaker Series, and get a behind the scenes perspective of your local design community during Open Studio events.
