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

Intellectual Property

The SBID Intellectual Property (IPP) initiative is a global campaign to prevent IP theft in the interior design industry. Developed in association with TM – Eye, City of London Police, Trading Standards and the Intellectual Property Office, the venture will assist the industry to obtain objective evidence of design ownership and raise awareness of what designers need to do to properly protect their work.

The SBID Intellectual Property initiative was relaunched on Tuesday 21 November 2017 at the House of Commons, Westminster London.

Students studying to further their interior design education


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.
