About Interior Design Confederation (Singapore)

IDCS Namecard 2013-2015-1Interior Design Confederation (Singapore) is a non-profit organisation and a registered society under Singapore law.

First registered in 2003, IDCS evolved from the merger of two professional organisations – the Interior Designers Association and the Society of Interior Designers (Singapore), which had similar goals and objectives.

The core members of IDCS are individual designers qualified to provide interior design and related services.  Professionals within the confederation’s membership provide these services under a wide range of circumstances across all living, recreational and commercial sectors.

The confederation spearheads industry initiatives to reinforce our goals, which are:

  • To promote a clearer understanding of our profession
  • To raise the profile of our members
  • Increase the level of professionalism of our members, thereby elevating theCrespect and status of these professionals and the profession as a whole within the business community.
  • Managing corporate and individual expectations with regards to the level of service our members provide under fair contractual conditions.
  • The collection and sharing of information relevant to the conduct and execution of our profession in Singapore.

The Confederation assists and advises organisations and persons working in related areas such as architecture, engineering, property development, building and construction.  We are in close contact with government departments, institutions and neighbouring design associations. We are also members of DesignS, APSDA (Asia Pacific Space Designers Association) and IFI (International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers).
