Interior Design is Not About Furniture

Not about furniture
Not about furniture

Don't be mistaken. I wouldn't be where I am without the amazing furniture designers that I've come to rely on. But, I think they would agree. It's like saying school is just about books. Or cooking is just about the ingredients. It's a gross oversimplification. How do you want to feel when you walk into a space? How do you want others to feel in the space? Just as a rich educational experience relies on a good teacher. And a memorable meal had with great friends. A great interior isn't made of furniture alone. It is layered with form, function, and familiarity. Familiarity being the pieces unique to your life that give it meaning, character, and depth. Your interior does not (and perhaps should not) need to be filled with the brand name, heirloom quality furniture.  When your space greets you and your guests with a big hug, what matters more is that you are filled with a sense of ease and gratitude.
