In this article, we take a look at some ways in which workplace interior design has changed since the pandemic, as offices attempt to strike a balance between work and home life.

Current On-Trend Lighting Ideas

Posted on 29 Jul, 2022

As any interior designer knows, lighting is one of the cornerstones of design, however many people don’t seem to think about it until it is pointed out to them by the designer during the initial briefing phase. Perhaps it’s because most lighting is above eye-level and out of sight. Maybe it’s because we use light to see, so don’t think of it as a fixture. Whatever the reason it is important to consider your lighting scheme early on in the design. With this in mind we thought we'd look at the latest trends in lighting for 2022.

What is Mid-Century Interior Design?

Posted on 28 Jun, 2022

As the name suggests, Mid-century Modern is an interior design movement that sprung up in the middle of the 20th century, during the post-War years. While it was popular for a span of about thirty years between 1945-1975, it hit its peak in the mid-1950s. However, you can’t keep a good design style down. Like so many other trends, what was popular once will become so again, with sufficient passage of time. That’s exactly what has happened with Mid-century Modern, as many contemporary designers begin taking on its aesthetic.

So what is Mid-century Modern, in practical terms? What is its aesthetic? Its theme? Its feel? More importantly, how can you replicate it in now in 2022?
