Accreditation demonstrates expertise and trust for industry buyers

SBID Designers have a social conscience and specify products from brands they trust, not just for their design aesthetic but also for performance, service and their impact on the planet.

Accreditation showcases the quality of product offering as approved by the leading industry body for interior design. It creates valuable relationship building opportunities with top-tier designers across the profession. From high value projects to the smallest maintenance repair, our buyers seek three important commodities; performance, trust and value. The SBID marque of accreditation provides additional confidence in the professional conduct of the supplier and can influence a designer’s procurement choices.
