2012 Second 100 Interior Design Giants

Reasons for optimism are trending in the statistics for the second 100 Interior Design Giants firms. Total revenue for the second 100 Giants jumped to $887 million in 2011 from $686 million in 2010. That's 29 percent. And the 2012 forecasts call for $936 million. Meanwhile, design fees rose $21 million, to $299 million. Firms installed a cool $8 billion worth of product and forecast $9.3 billion for next time. Average revenue-per-head also rose $13,000, to $167,000, and revenue-per-foot rose $1, to $98. The total number of projects made a wild leap, up 3,161 to 9,996. Firms expect 10,500 projects in 2012.


Notably, the most admired firms as voted by the 2012 second 100 Giants are GenslerTonychi & AssociatesYabu Pushelberg, and Rockwell Group.


We can cap all those promising stats with perhaps the most telling indicator, revenue growth. Compared to the dark days when a mere seven of the firms reported positive growth, there are now 50. So why does that rogue wave of uncertainty persist? Numbers, unlike politicians, don't lie. The second 100 Giants have had a good run that looks likely to continue.
