What we're about

Studio88 was created specifically for interior designers, and is aiming at connecting and building a collaborative environment for independent interior designers, interior design companies, as well as a space for commercial and residential building professionals to come together in order to build a strong network through education. We are looking for interior designers, contractors, architects, vendors and similar professionals to join us for weekly educational events (think lunch and learns), as well as a once monthly larger educational networking event on the last Tuesday of each month.
