ASID Interior Design Billings Index (IDBI) - October 2020

Encouraging signs are evident for the interior design industry as reported in this month’s survey. The October Interior Design Billings Index (IDBI), produced by ASID, moved up three index points to 55.4 and the inquiry index rose nearly five index points to 57.5 over September’s scores (any score above 50 represents expansion and below 50 represents contraction). Reflecting this positive trend, the three-month moving average of the IDBI index was 53.5 and the three-month moving average of the new projects inquiry index recorded a 55.9. This positive momentum was also matched in the panelist’s 6-month outlook ratcheting up the expectation index to 56.7.
