The Ethos Design Collective is about Community, and Interconnectedness.

We are about helping one another, to rise up. For those of us, who have achieved a higher status, to turn back and hold out our hand to lift the next. We lift our entire industry by being a community of one for all, rather than one for oneself.

Our shared collective brings a unified voice, direct to consumers, about our value as professionals, leading them to a directory for our members. We also bring savings, innovative connections, technology, opportunities, resources and a combined passion and love for our profession, and creating beauty in a world of uncertainty and chaos for humankind. Designers are the ones to create these havens of retreat, rest and renewal and healing.

The world is ugly, but it doesn’t have to be.

That’s why our logo is the nautilus, both signifying the Faith and Baby Steps (You don’t have to see the whole staircase, you just have to take the first step),and also, very similar to a mobius strip, what one does in our industry, truly affects us all. We must use our collective voices, for the greater good, and shout from the rooftops, consistently, persistently, about the values and benefits of hiring PROFESSIONAL interior designers.

That is our main purpose, and that is the only way to create the loudest, strongest voice, rising up out of the clutter of the internet, to be heard and be seen, to become profitable businesses once again.

There can be no doubt, that hiring a professional interior designer has a huge impact on a client’s project. Mistakes are costly, not just in monetary value, but also in time, our greatest and most valuable asset in this age of technology.

We need YOU. Join us!
