The Sustainable Furnishings Council has announced that its third annual interior design competition, #GetYourGreenOn, is now open. This competition honors interior designers who specify sustainable and healthful home furnishings for their clients’ residences.

Both SFC-member and non-member interior designers and design firms are eligible to enter the competition; residential interior design projects completed between April 1, 2017, and March 31, 2018, qualify. Entries must feature at least one product from an SFC-member manufacturer or supplier (Search here for eligible brands).

Entries are complete when fees are paid and high-resolution photos have been submitted. Deadline for entries is August 15, 2018.

New in 2018

#GetYourGreenOn focuses on wood sourcing this year by asking entrants to share their best practices for determining if the wood furniture and furnishings they specified were made from responsibly sourced wood. In addition, entrants will be asked to explain their efforts to reduce the use of hazardous chemicals most commonly found in home furnishings, especially flame-retardant chemicals, fluorinated stain treatments, antimicrobials, vinyl, and VOCs such as formaldehyde, in their projects. These questions align with SFC’s pledge to ask “What’s It Made Of?,” an initiative that encourages transparency in supply chains and stimulates innovation to eliminate hazardous substances in homes.

#GetYourGreenOn winners and finalist will be announced during the fall of 2018.


There are three #GetYourGreenOn categories, each with two total-project-cost ranges:

• SHARED SPACES (Great rooms, family rooms, living rooms, dining rooms, media rooms, etc.): $30,000 and under; $30,001 and above.

• PRIVATE SPACES (Home office; bedrooms including master, guest and youth; nurseries, etc.): $30,000 and under; $30,001 and above. 

• OUTDOOR SPACES (Dining, lounge and garden areas, poolside, etc.): $30,000 and under; $30,001 and above.
