We are delighted to join this global design network, as an accredited industry-partner in manufacturing wood floors of distinction.
The Society of British and International Design is the UK based standard bearer organisation for the accreditation of professional interior designers, product suppliers and educational institutions.
They work to strengthen the profession of interior design and the commercial success of their members. “Our objective is to promote the profession of interior design at the highest level of competence” - SBID SBID provides instant recognition to the B2B community through its globally recognised marque of excellence that endorses an esteemed and qualified professional working to a universal standard of competence.
This gives customers the assurance that the SBID member is a trained and skilled professional with relevant knowledge, training and experience. SBID accreditation is governed by the ECIA Charter of Education and professional Code of Conduct, which sets the requirement for the official recognition of a practicing professional interior designer.
SBID-accredited interior designers have demonstrated the European standard required to become an accredited professional while accredited industry partners have demonstrated compliance with the five point system of the SBID International Code of Conduct.
This is the pre-eminent level of design excellence in Europe, delivered in the UK through the Society of British and International Design.
Our professional ethos of manufacturing unique hardwood flooring products with the best managed forest timber products sits perfectly with the SBID Code of Conduct and commitment to excellence within the industry.
A good managed forest will plant more trees than it harvests and in North America, parts of Russia and even China this is very much the case. We do not have many of our deciduous forests left now so oak in the UK is in short supply. We do not purchase or machine any timber from the rain forests, such as Teak etc.
All our products are unique to us as they are made to our exacting specification and are British quality controlled. Wooden flooring products are just like us - every tree is individual and unique. The grain and colour variation on any single species of tree will be different, just like every human being is different.
The seasons and climate changes will have an impact on trees and can alter their hue, colour and structure. The continual development of our ethical hardwood flooring means we can offer high quality products at competitive prices. As a member of the Timber Trade Association, The Solid Wood Flooring Company sets industry standards with their approach to testing, sourcing, research and development.
Being proactive with sustainability ensures that more trees are planted than harvested for our timber products. We have earned a three Tree rating with the WWF, which is the highest that can be given for our environmental and sustainability statements and procedures.
