More about: RUTH LYNFORD

Visionary, generous, committed, vivacious, enthusiastic, sharp, determined, knowledgeable, warm, gracious, interested, engaged and resourceful: these are just a few of the adjectives which begin to describe Ruth Lynford-a woman extraordinarily dedicated to the individuals and professional she befriends and organizations she serves.


Sarajane Brittis, Ph.D.

President, Board of Directors

International Center for Integrative Studies (ICIS)



















Ruth Lynford received a Bachelor of Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. As President of her firm Lynford Ltd., she has served a wide range of residential and commercial clients helping them to accomplish their aesthetic and functional objectives on time and on budget.


However, Ms. Lynford’s career has integrated a broad range of interests related to the world of design. She has devoted much of her time to design education, having founded New York Eleven in 1996. NY11 is a collaboration of 12 prestigious New York state educational institutions offering four-year programs in Interior Design who make an effort to reach the public and legislators with examples of student thesis work, exhibiting at the Untied Nations, New York City and in Albany, the Capital of New York.  She has held to the belief that the future generations of Interior Designers must perform at ever higher levels to achieve the confidence of the general public.


Ms. Lynford has been actively engaged in the political process necessary to achieve recognition for Interior Design as a legitimate profession. Her efforts led to the successful passage of legislation recognizing Interior Design as the 33rd profession in New York State. This legislation serves as a model for similar legislative initiatives in other states nationwide.  She is presently working to raise the bar of the Interior Design profession by constantly consulting with legislators.

 Alabama was the first state to recognize Interior Design as a legitimate profession. As the legislation gathered momentum in other states, battles were fought and won-by interior designers.

None was as tough in terms of passage as the bill in New York State, guided for more than six years by a determined woman architect and interior designer, Ruth Lynford. New York, with a large number of interior designers (10,000), was seen as a bellwether state and thus one in which architects should take a stand. That Ruth Lynford pitted herself and her small coalition of six interior design organizations against the mighty AIA and emerged successful is a lesson in the power of persistence, tactics, and sheer charisma on her part. “I was taught to take risks, to put your life on the line for what you feel is right. I just had to do what I had to do,” she explains. Once New York, Illinois, and California were in the bag in 1990, there was no turning back. Interior design was on the docket as a full-fledged profession, subject to specific exams and government regulation. It was no longer enough to be a woman of style and taste, to practice as, and call oneself, an interior designer.
