Top Interior Design Schools in the US

Design – If there is anything we know at Bauhaus2YourHouse is that interior designers do not just spring up overnight as full-blown artists. They also don’t simply pop-up organically as cable reality show hosts either. After all, many of the designers whose furniture is represented on our site were graduates of Bauhaus which was founded by Walter Gropius. The school – which operated from 1919 to 1933 – had an uncanny knack for spotting and developing talent who would go on to enrich the fields of architecture, interior design, sculpture, etc. That is the value of any good school regardless of the subject. An effective school carefully guides its students and cultivates in them talents that will go on to enhance (and sometimes revolutionize) their chosen field. But, Bauhaus is just one example of a school that developed talents in the field of interior design. Here are some of best interior design schools in the US.Design


  • New York School of Interior Design: Unlike many design schools around the country, this school specializes in interior design only. Students here have a 92% placement rate after graduating.
  • Pratt Institute: Ninety-three percent of Pratt’s seniors find jobs after graduating in their fields. Moreover, the school boasts one of the top rated graduate programs in the country.
  • Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD): SCAD is located in Savannah, GA and has interior programs based in Hong Kong and Lacoste (France). This bestows upon the school an international flavor and gives students there the opportunity to study abroad.
  • The Art Institute of Pittsburgh: Launched in 2000, this school gives students the opportunity to study fashion, design, media, etc.
  • Institute of Design (Chicago): Founded in 1937, the number of students enrolled here is relatively small but that does not take away from the school’s prestige.


Although the Bauhaus no longer exists, its spirit exists in many of the pieces we sell here on our site. The art of interior design, aided by technology, thrives in the halls of the above institutions as well. Who knows? Its students may eventually go on to design pieces of furniture as enduring and influential as the Corbusier chair or Bentwood chair.
