The Association of Registered Interior Designers

The Association of Registered Interior Designers of New Brunswick (ARIDNB) is the self-regulatory professional body of interior design practitioners in the Province of New Brunswick.

The Association received its Title Act from the New Brunswick Legislature in June 1987. The Act allows the Association’s designers to use the designation "Registered Interior Designer".

Those individuals or companies engaging the services of a Registered Interior Designer have the assurance that the designer is qualified by education, experience and examination to practice the profession of interior design.
