SBID’s mission to protect, promote and represent UK Interior Designers continues to be at the forefront of the organisation. Our partnerships with professional and governmental bodies has helped us reach and engage with highly professional, influential, qualified and experienced professionals that support our mission.
“As an interior design community, we no longer wish to remain on the outside of industry” says SBID CEO and founder, Dr Vanessa Brady, OBE. “Interior Designers are always the first in and the last out of a project; it’s time they were recognised for the multi-level experience and knowledge they are required to provide to almost all professions at the table”.
Not only are SBID the sole representative for British Interior Design on the European Council of Interior Architects (ECIA), they are also the selected representative for UK interior design with the all party business-lobby group (representing 99% of all UK businesses) led by Patron HRH Prince Michael of Kent. SBID is active in 45 countries and is represented across the world through its partnerships and promotion of British design and product supply.
SBID presents a variety of risks associated to UK interior Designers at the Bank of England Monetary Committee industry review meeting, where the SBID is the sole representative of the interior design industry. With recent changes in the terms of trade brought about by the UK leaving the EU. The right professional Accreditation for UK interior design professionals is even more crucial for UK design professionals, wherever in the world they work.
As the pioneer for accrediting professional designers in interior design for the UK, SBID will continue to ensure their accredited designers are represented and protected throughout international trade.
