Who Is IIDA? Christine Peter


Christine Peter brings over twenty three years and a wide range of experience working for both dealers and manufacturers in supporting the Southern California market.


A native Californian, Christine was raised in San Diego in a small beach town called Leucadia.  She currently lives in Huntington Beach with her husband of 25 years and their three dogs.

Christine started at a Knoll furniture dealership in Orange County and then moved on to executive management position for a Steelcase dealer. Her work with dealers, manufacturers and project managers led her to discover and then fill a niche with her own company, Kaleidoscope Concept. Christine and her team of five help guide and educate firms, project managers, and end users about new products, design innovations and best practices to keep within budget.


Christine has been volunteering for over thirteen years with IIDA, first with the Orange County City Center and since 2015 as VP of Advocacy on the IIDA SoCal Executive Board of Directors. In this role, she has dedicated her time to advance the interior design industry via legislative initiatives. “I believe Advocacy is the single most important issue that I can contribute to,” said Christine.  “We’re working hard to advance the industry and keep it strong- IIDA is the touch point for design and it’s my home base.”

In her spare time, Christine also volunteers for the Orangewood Foundation, working with victims of crime or those who have become a ward of the state.


She also finds time for boating/jet ski at her vacation home on the Colorado River with her husband.
