BRAND  PHILOSOPHIES 

Sustainable.

If you cannot reduce, re-use. If you cannot re-use, recycle, sell or donate. If none of those work, then dispose. There's only one planet Earth and we want to be apart of the solution when it comes to minimizing waste. We take this very seriously at IDX. We help clients find a second life for items that no longer work in their home. 

We don't believe in beating around the bush when it comes to important decisions. Interior Design is a process, and in the end, everyone involved has the same goal in mind. So, transparency is a policy that works best if things pop up or problems need to be solved. We want our clients to be comfortable enough to be honest and open with their opinions. And, we will be too. 

 

Most design firms have a niche or specific client they want to work with. We don't. We prefer to act like chameleons. We love the challenge of swaying between styles. Plus, we enjoy catering the service each client gets to their wants and needs - some want to joke around, while others prefer a luxury experience - we can do both. 

They say "hope for the best, but plan for the worst". And, we do. Sometimes everything can be planned out perfectly, but life AND design throw curveballs at you. We try to foresee challenges and get ahead of them to ensure a smooth process for our clients. When we can't, we stop and assess thing in a strategic way to make calculated decisions on how to move forward.

Transparent. 

Adaptable.

Proactive.
