The Home Technology Association (HTA)—the resource for qualified and professional home technology professionals—has announced a mutually-beneficial collaboration initiative with the IDS (Interior Designer Society). Through this new arrangement, HTA will provide IDS members access to HTA’s robust library of educational resources, including articles, webinars, and videos that have proven beneficial in educating, inspiring, and engaging architects, designers, and specifiers. In turn, IDS will help spread the word about the importance of using HTA Certified home technology integrators.
The Interior Design Society (IDS) is one of the country’s largest design organizations dedicated to serving the residential interior design industry. They are a group of like-minded professionals interested in broadening their network, professional development, and continued education. IDS offers its members a place to belong within a supportive and welcoming design community through local chapters nationwide and a Virtual Chapter.

“We are thrilled to forge this relationship with IDS as it solidifies initiatives we have been working on since the HTA’s inception: To bridge the gap between the design-build and integration communities and to become a valued and go-to resource for interior designers. Technology is an ever more important aspect of our lives, especially at home, and the Home Technology Association was created to be a key resource to designers and building professionals. The HTA helps interior designers and homeowners find the industry’s best home technology integration firms that know how to blend and hide technology into a home’s interiors in ways that augment, not clash, with the interior designer’s vision,” says Josh Christian, CEO of HTA.
“We look forward to creating meaningful opportunities for both our memberships moving forward.”
