The Core of the Design Community

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is a community of people, designers, industry representatives, educators and students who are committed to interior design. Through education, knowledge sharing, advocacy, community building and outreach, the Society strives to advance the interior design profession and, in the process, to demonstrate and celebrate the power of design to positively change people's lives. Its members engage in a variety of professional programs and activities through a network of chapters throughout the United States and Canada.

Founded in 1975, the American Society of Interior Designers is the oldest, largest and leading professional organization for interior designers. 

ASID inspires and enriches its members by promoting the value of interior design, while providing indispensable knowledge and experiences that build relationships. The Society's 18,000 practicing interior designers work in all areas of both commercial and residential design. 

ASID Industry Partners include more than 2,700 member firms with some 7,500 individual representatives, uniting the professional designer with manufacturers of design-related products and services.

The Society's membership also includes more than 10,500 students of interior design. ASID has student chapters at colleges, universities and design schools with 2-year and 4-year programs throughout the U.S. and "virtual" chapters through Rhodec International and The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online.  Learn more at
