The British Institute Of Interior Design
We are very proud to be a fully accredited member of the British Institute of Interior Design.

You can view our BIID member profile on their website.
In the words of the BIID:
“The British Institute of Interior Design is the pre-eminent professional organisation for interior designers in the UK. Our growing national and international membership represents both the commercial and residential sectors, from heritage to cutting edge. In addition to rigorous entry requirements which assess training, experience and professionalism, we require our members to continue their professional development throughout their career to ensure their continued expertise in design process, practice and regulatory matters. The British Institute of Interior Design is the only professional organisation for interior designers which has been granted the prestigious and rare accolade of Institute status by the Minister of State as the pre-eminent body in its field.
“The organisation was founded in 1966 as the Interior Decorators and Designers Association (IDDA). In 2001, the IDDA was amalgamated with the globally recognised International Interior Design Association UK Chapter (IIDA), to form the British Interior Design Association (BIDA). The Secretary of State recognised the BIDA as the pre-eminent body in the field in 2009 and granted Institute status so it became the British Institute of Interior Design.
“On the national stage we are full members of the Construction Industry Council and as a result are now part of Government consultations to advise on new policy and legislation. Internationally we are full members of the International Federation of Interior Architects and Designers. We are also members of the Design Partners, the UK Trade and Industry sector advisory group for the design consultancy sector.”
