Signature Events

INawards (Fall)

Showcasing the multi-faceted profession of interior design, this juried design competition is held in inspiring venues throughout the city of Seattle. Design firms from the entire Pacific Northwest Chapter are encouraged to submit their best work to earn their INaward as chosen by a group of internationally recognized design professionals. In the weeks prior to the event, the public votes for their favorite overall design at the events in Seattle and Spokane for the People’s Choice award. This annual gala includes a cocktail reception (prior or after) a seated awards presentation. Awards are also presented to the design professional and industry professional of the year as well as the Wilsonart Student Academic Award winners. This is the highlight of the interior design community and should never be missed.
