On every project, we aim to do meaningful, creative design work. Along the way to reaching our goals, we draw inspiration from many sources—our clients’ lifestyles, the creations of a master furniture craftsman, a stunning sculpture from an up-and-coming artist. Interior design requires an intimate knowledge of many different disciplines and resources, to which our eyes are always open. In our aptly named Inspiration blog, we share the products, trends, artisans, muses and merchants we encounter, and hope they fill you with discovery, delight and, most significantly, knowledge to help you lead a more comfortable, aesthetically pleasing life.
Architecture and interior design are sister disciplines, which explains why we’re so moved by the newly opened exhibition “Making Place: The Architecture of David Adjaye” at the Art Institute of Chicago (AIC) through January 3, 2016. With riveting project models that range from large-scale public works to residences similarly sized to those we design for our clients, and vivid photographs of the finished products to bring these ventures to life, we found the show spellbinding—and inspirational to us as interior designers.
