    Here are some additional facts and figures about these retail Giants:
    Seven of the firms state that because of the changing economy of the past few years, their interior design practice is more streamlined—meaning a larger volume of projects, but fewer staff and smaller budgets than before.


    Eight of them say that they're working on more international projects than they were three years ago.Eight also say that sustainability is becoming a more important component of their design decisions.Nine say that their design staffs use the internet more often than before to research, source, and select products.Among these ten, the percentage of their retail projects ranges from 17 percent to 100 percent of their total projects. For 2006, they estimate that they will earn a total of $158 million in fees from retail projects alone.
