Casual Living’s survey was fielded during February and March of 2008. More than 200 practicing interior designers returned completed surveys. Returned surveys were representative of the sampled population of interior designers in the U.S. According to the results, designing casual living spaces, whether indoors or out, is not a new activity. More than half said their residential customers began to ask them to design casual living spaces more than five years ago. Conversely, less than one-fifth started such activities within the last year.
Even more importantly, designs for casual living spaces (either indoors or outdoors) represent a substantial measure of interior designer’s annual design revenues. One quarter of the interior designers derived somewhere between 26% to 50% of their revenues last year from such work. And 13% said more than one-half of their revenues last year came from designing for casual spaces. They expect casual living spaces to represent a good portion of their work this year as well.
