Our objective is to promote the profession of interior design at the highest level of competence

The Society of British and International Design is the UK-based standard bearer organisation for the accreditation of professional interior designers, product suppliers and educational institutions. We work to strengthen the profession of interior design and the commercial success of our members.



As an organisation we believe strongly in collaboration. The strong industry links we form create vital opportunities for our members and allow SBID to further its expertise in all areas of the interior design industry. We work with industry and trade partners as well as professional organisations in the UK and around the world to promote and protect professional interior design and to establish a global network of accredited professionals.

One of SBID’s aims is to build a ‘learning to earning’ ethos in interior design education. We are actively involved in the education sector, working with UK universities to create accredited university courses that meet the criteria of the European Council of Interior Architects (ECIA) European Charter of Education. This ensures SBID accredited UK universities offer a degree-level education that develops comprehensive, practical and commercial skills to enhance the employment prospects of its interior design graduates.
