Chris Goddard is a seasoned interior designer and creator of timeless, eclectic and luxurious spaces. With over 30 years of international experience, his work includes both residential and commercial projects in the U.S., Canada, the Cayman Islands and beyond. His eponymous firm Goddard Design Group, based in Springdale, Arkansas, has been recognized as one of the top 100 firms in the world by the Andrew Martin Interior Design Review.
Chris has trade memberships with the Design Leadership Network, A.S.I.D., and I.D.S. where he serves as vice president of the Arkansas chapter. In 2018, he received an A.S.I.D. Award of Excellence followed by the International Design & Architecture Award through design et al. Chris was named IDS Designer of the Year in both 2019 and 2020.
Chris’s design approach emphasizes the importance of centering design around the client. He never uses the same fabric or piece of furniture twice and believes a job well done is a job that tells a story and reflects the client. The one unifying factor among Goddard’s work is quality over trend; he advises clients to be active in the design process and educates them on investing in meaningful pieces in order to make an inheritable, timeless space.
Both Chris and his work have appeared in numerous National, Regional and International publications, including Architectural Digest, House Beautiful.com, Southern Home and Vogue. Chris is also a frequent guest on podcasts and design panels. In 2018, Chris participated in the Arkansas Symphony Designer Showhouse in Little Rock. In 2021, Chris was a finalist on the HGTV Design Star: Next Gen series.
Looking forward, Chris is inspired by the resurgence of interest in the home. The necessity of living, working and entertaining in one space has inspired people to transform their homes into bespoke environments. Also in the works for Chris in late 2021 is a proprietary fabric and furniture line with a book to follow in 2022.
