Our next event is Tuesday, May 10th, 11am-1pm.  Join us at LightSource Lighting, 16116 S. Illinois Rte 59, Plainfield, 60585.  As you know, lighting is one of the most important elements of your home`s design. It serves many functions, such as providing safety, assisting in performing household tasks, creating an atmosphere for entertaining, and pulling together the overall design you are trying to achieve.  Light Source Lighting has invited reps from Visual Comforts, Kichler and Satco to join us so they can share how their lighting products can provide solutions to our client projects so we can create stunning, inspiring settings.  Bring your lighting questions to the experts!

Please check out our website often! It will include details for upcoming events and announcements as well as chapter contact information and a link to the National Interior Design Society website.
