The words unprecedented and extraordinary keep being used to describe the times we are living in. Yet we are truly inspired by what can happen when the world at large comes together with a common goal, and we want to do our part in the most impactful way possible.
We consciously recognize that the world of interior design is seriously lacking in diversity, especially with regards to the inclusion of BIPOC designers and makers. We also consciously recognize that we can and should play an active role in working towards change. With this in mind, we are taking steps for how we can do our part in bringing lasting inclusivity into our field, outlined below.
StyleRow Action is the formal organization of our company-wide efforts to be proactive contributors to social progress in our industry and beyond.

We are presently piloting an internship program designed to provide practical training and hands-on learning opportunities, and welcome applicants on a rolling basis.
