The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is compiling valuable insight on the economics of the design industry and opening recruitment for Interior Design Billings Index (IDBI) survey panelists. Analyzed monthly, the IDBI tracks performance data for billings and inquiries, highlighting economic trends and vital indicators for the interior design industry. IDBI survey panelists include design firms and industry professionals who provide important data and perspectives that impact and inform the future of the industry.
“Our monthly IDBI report effectively combines the insight, opinions, and findings from a wide variety of interior design firms to better illustrate the economic climate and what to expect from a market perspective,” explains Randy Fiser, Hon. FASID, CEO, ASID. “We could not compile the index without the help of our IDBI survey panelists, who provide the backbone of each report and assist in informing the entire industry of where we’re headed next.”
The IDBI is produced monthly from a comprehensive survey distributed by ASID to 180+ geographically and size diverse design firms. Through a variety of perspectives on current and future business conditions and a rundown of market analysis by top economists, the Index offers helpful indicators, widespread trends, growth expectations, and informed assessments for the entire design industry.

Participating firms impact the future of design by sharing their valued outlooks and billings data, keeping the interior design industry informed and better prepared for economic change. Panelists receive exclusive market intelligence on monthly thematic questions, and following twelve months' of responses, receive a custom report comparing their specific billings and inquiries to the rest of the industry. Sign up for an IDBI survey panelist position.
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. We 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. We lead interior designers in shared conversations around topics that matter: from evidence-based and human-centric design to social responsibility, well-being, and sustainability. We showcase the impact of design on the human experience and the value interior designers provide.
ASID was founded over 40 years ago when two organizations became one, but its legacy dates back to the early 1930s. As we celebrate nearly 85 years of industry leadership, we are leading 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.
