Why do interior decorators need business insurance?

Because you work in your clients' homes and make purchases on their behalf, you take on a lot of risk. Business insurance covers costs if a client is injured, or if you accidentally break an item in their home. It also helps pay for legal defense costs if a homeowner sues your business.
