Member Spotlight: Amy Running

Name: Amy Running
Company/Position/Years: Bora Architects & Interiors, Senior Interior Designer, 23 years
IIDA member since: Professional Member since 2006

Why are you a member of IIDA?
The amazing network of designers across our whole state.

Favorite IIDA event:
Next Event – always an inspiring event.

Why do you support interior design licensing?
Interior design is a profession that should be recognized by the State of Oregon. This mostly women and minority owned business industry has waited way too long for recognition. Don’t hesitate to make your voice heard!

What does being a designer mean to your life?
Knowing my work is impacting others in a positive way makes me fulfilled as a designer. I often work on public educational spaces; seeing teachers and students use these spaces to engage, communicate and create brings life to these spaces in a whole new way. 

On a typical Saturday where can we find you?
Enjoying the great outdoors in Oregon with my family, or working in my garden.
