American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is a community of people, designers, industry representatives, educators, and students committed to advancing the interior design profession.


The American Society of Interior Designers believes that design transforms lives. ASID serves the full range of the interior design profession and practice through the Society’s programs, networks, and advocacy. They thrive on the strength of cross-functional and interdisciplinary relationships among designers of all specialties, including workplace, healthcare, retail and hospitality, education, institutional, and residential. They lead interior designers in shared conversations around topics that matter: from evidenced-based and human-centric design to social responsibility, well-being, and sustainability. They showcase the impact of design on the human experience and the value interior designers provide. ASID was founded nearly 40 years ago when two organizations became one — an anniversary recognized in 2015 — but its legacy dates back to the early 1930s. As they celebrate nearly 85 years of industry leadership, they are poised to lead the future of interior design, continuing to integrate the advantages of local connections with national reach, of small firms with big and of the places we live with the places we work, play, and heal.
