Representing British Interior Design Globally

As the pioneer of national accreditation criteria adopted in the UK for interior design, SBID continue to ensure accredited designers are represented, protected and through the world renowned SBID Awards, celebrated.

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 experts to 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 is now time to be recognised for the experience and knowledge within each interior design specialism provided to numerous professions in a commercial procurement supply chain”.

Not only is SBID the sole representative Design Body for British Interior Design in Europe, it is 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 represented in 48 countries across the world and in 91 countries through partnerships, collaborations and the Commonwealth.

With recent changes in the terms of trade brought about by the UK leaving the E.U. it is even more crucial for UK design professionals to obtain professional industry Accreditation to identify and showcase the calibre of skills and performance on offer wherever in the world they perform.

SBID is the representative body invited twice annually to present the risks and opportunities of the UK interior design industry at the Bank of England Monetary Committee industry review meeting.

As the pioneer for national accreditation criteria of professional designers in interior design for the UK, SBID will continue to ensure their accredited designers are represented and protected throughout practice from cradle to grave.
