If you’re following the fashion industry, you must have noticed how much it affects furniture production and interior design. For example, Hermes is now producing wallpapers and household textiles, Diesel is designing furniture and light fixtures, and Fendi Casa is vying with Cassina and Flexform for dominance in the interior design market.
One of the key interior design rules says that lightning is everything. This is where you don’t want to make a mistake because it can cost you a lot — both in terms of money and nerves. A poor light fixture can ruin an otherwise ideal interior, while a carefully selected item can completely transform the space. If you’re willing to flatter your ego and demonstrate your taste, be sure to choose unconventional lightning fixtures. Bold and eccentric, they will become the central pieces of your interior.
Designers can be different. There are those who will readily meet your any need only to make some money. There are those who will stand their ground no matter what, unwilling to make a tiniest step back. And there are those who will agree to everything you are saying even if they know their solution is a better one. When choosing an interior designer, stop for a minute and ask yourself whether you feel comfortable with this person. We are sorry to disappoint you but there is no such thing as an “ideal” designer. However, it’s no reason to give up. Read on to find out how to choose if not ideal, but at least a reliable professional.

One of the rules of good interior design says that light solves everything. A bad lighting design can "cast a shadow" on even the most perfect room, while winning lighting will provide beauty and a welcome home.

We are constantly in contact with building materials. Metal handles, wooden walls and glass windows would create a completely different atmosphere if the handles were, say, glass, the walls were metal and the windows were wood. The material is as important to the building as its form, function and location - or rather, inseparable from these three characteristics. We have compiled a list of 15 materials that any self-respecting architect should know about.
A few decades ago, this building material did not evoke thoughts of coziness and comfort. Concrete gained popularity with the development of industrial style in the interior, as well as after the appearance of minimalism in design, loft and high-tech. People began to think more about the functionality of the objects that surround them rather than about appearance. Today, manufacturers offer furniture made of concrete, sanitary equipment, as well as lamps, decorative elements and garden sets.
