New interior design company does well during recession
on Wednesday,April 13,2011 22:04
When the economy took a turn for the worse, Commercial Interiors Group (CIG), an interior design company, was born. Darcy Robertson and Melinda DeCosta joined forces after the architecture company they worked for went under, according to the Royal Gazette.
Robertson and DeCosta reached out to all the companies and with which they were working and requested that they moved with them, and the majority of them did.
"How we operate and what we offer service wise has not changed, it is just a new phone number, email and name," Robertson said to the news source.
He added that he has seen certain changes in the profession. Clients have become more aware of the quality of good interior design and there is greater sense of camaraderie between service providers to ensure the completion of a project, he claimed.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job market for interior designers is expected to increase by 19 percent between 2008 and 2018. Also, these individuals should expect to earn nearly $45,000 per year, which was the average annual salary in 2008.
