The Society of British & International Interior Design (SBID) was founded in 2009 by Dr Vanessa Brady, OBE. Having spent over 30 years in the Interior Design industry, Vanessa found that interior design as a profession was not regulated, nor was there a clear separation between an interior design hobbyiest and a professional.
SBID Accredits professional interior designers, architects and manufacturers to the highest standard. The organisation aims to promote best practice and expert knowledge in the interior design industry, create routes to market for design professionals and strengthen the links between emerging industry talent and the creative industries. SBID is active in 46 countries and is represented across the world through its partnerships and International membership
SBID membership include interior designers, architects, developers, specifiers and construction professionals. They operate across both the commercial and residential sectors and represent the range, diversity and international spread of the global design industry.
