This year, the SBID International Design Awards became the first interior design award scheme to be accredited to GOLD standard by The Independent Awards Standards Council. Further cementing its position as one of the most prestigious interior design Awards in the global design calendar, The Gold Trust Mark is just another endorsement to the value that an SBID Award generates for the deserving winners.

Aside from the announcement of the highly anticipated SBID Awards winners for 2019, the Awards ceremony is a prestigious and glamorous affair. Bringing together the world’s most reputed interior designers and design practices to celebrate the past year of global design excellence. The winners across 15 SBID Awards categories will be presented with the beautiful SBID International Design Awards 2019 trophy, expertly crafted by Czech glass specialist, Sans Souci Glass Deco.

The SBID Master of Design 2019 will also be presented with an award which serves to recognise professional interior designers who have, across their career, made significant contributions to the global interior design industry through innovation and expertise; raising the overall standards of design. Last year saw David Chang, Founder and Chief Designer of David Chang Design Associates International take to the stage to claim this coveted Award for international design services to the highest level.

Consistent in the quest to recognise, reward and celebrate global interior design, this year’s edition will also be celebrating the 10th anniversary of SBID with a captivating ceremony held in the Ballroom of the Grosvenor House hotel, Mayfair. Serving up a 3-course luncheon throughout the day, the food menu has been produced by the Executive Chef, Paul Bates.

Attendees of the Awards can also expect a special surprise guest who will be revealed on the day to host the event as the announcements unfold. Previous Awards presenters include a celebrity line up with the likes of Julian Clary, Gyles Brandreth and Ken Bruce. What’s more, each guest will receive their own complimentary copy of the SBID Global Interior Design 2019 coffee table book. This 360-page hardback publication will feature the breath-taking design projects from the 2019 shortlisted finalists and category winners.

The annual SBID International Design Awards also represent a unique opportunity to network with other design professionals and connect with peers from around the world.
