About idp


idp INTERIOR DESIGN was initiated in 2005 by Malcolm King, as the dedicated interior design arm of International Design Partners Ltd (established 1997) to offer planning, conceptual architecture, interior design, coordinated lighting design, full FF&E specification and design project management. Full FF&E purchasing is offered through IDP Procurement Ltd.


idp is managed by professionals with extensive experience and knowledge of the hotel and leisure market, both nationally and internationally. The company is dedicated to creative interior design, irrespective of budget, project type or location. This professional and yet personal approach ensures successful projects result in returned clients.


“We selected IDP Interior Design from other designers because Malcolm listened, interpreted our ideas and presented the concept in a highly creative and professional way which impressed us greatly.  Together with his accomplished design team his experience, vision and creativity in all areas of the Royal Yacht interiors helped create the warm friendly atmosphere we sought.  IDP’s clever use of mood lighting and stylish but practical furnishings coupled with a subtle nautical theme resulted in the modern, spacious luxury hotel which is described by many as ‘world class’”. Nigel Robson, owner of Royal Yacht Hotel, Jersey


“The Royal Yacht shows what can be achieved through a combination of imagination and investment: if you aim high, deploy the best people and spend on quality in every area, the result is class – world class”. Simon Calder, Travel Writer for The Independent newspaper and the BBC


“We contracted Malcolm at IDP to undertake the interior design of our new extension and renovation to existing rooms, suites and residents lounge.  Despite being brought into the project at a late stage, Malcolm used his exceptional experience to re-plan these areas and develop a top quality design that is comfortable and modern but remains sympathetic to the Caribbean region. In addition to the interior design, IDP undertook the purchasing of all FF&E including bathrooms. It is sufficient accolade that we continue to work with Malcolm and his team on this and other hotel projects and I would highly recommend IDP for hotel projects requiring these services”.  Peter Odle, Chairman, Mango Bay Group of Hotels and former President, Caribbean Hotel Association


We appointed Malcolm and his team at IDP Interior Design based on their initial studies and concept design for turning two of our indoor tennis courts into a luxury spa. IDP used the experience gained on similar spa projects to create unique spaces and finishes which included an exhilarating walk through experience based on a woodland theme. After developing the design from conceptual to final specification and detailing, IDP was heavily involved with the purchasing and coordination. In addition to outstanding interior design, IDP coordinated the lighting design which was instrumental in creating the relaxing, sophisticated atmosphere expected. The result was a stunning, natural environment that has recently been awarded the 'Global Spa of the Year Award'.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Malcolm and the IDP team to anyone considering the creation of a luxury spa facility.
