New Iowa Law for Interior Designers

Last week, when Governor Tom Vilsack (D) signed the Iowa Interior Design Title Act bill into law, Iowa became the 25th state to legally register professional interior designers.

According to American Society of Interior Designers president Anita Baltimore, licensing is essential to the profession. "Interior designers protect the health, safety and welfare of the public. The new law will protect the citizens of Iowa because they will know if an individual entrusted to create their interior spaces meets baseline professional standards." Licensed interior designers must be knowledgeable about several safety and health issues, including flammability of fabrics and finishes, ergonomics, building codes, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
