The British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) introduced Honorary
Fellowships in 2012 to recognise those who have had a profound impact on
the development and success of the interior design profession.We
believe it is important to show our gratitude to those who do not meet

The Honorary Fellowships will be awarded at the Institute'se Annual Conference at the RIBA on Thursday, 19th June 2014.
