What is ASID?
The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is the oldest and largest professional organization for interior designers. ASID was established in 1975, resulting from a merger of two interior design associations formed in 1931. With more than 40,000 members, ASID establishes a common identity for professionals and businesses in the field of interior design.
ASID provides education for design practitioners that helps their businesses conform to environmental and safety standards. ASID design consultants receive the most current information on appropriate materials, technology, building codes, government regulations, flammability standards, design psychology, product performance and more. Armed with this knowledge, ASID designers protect the health, safety and welfare of people in interior environments.
