Mies Van der Rohe famously said, “A chair is a very difficult object, A skyscraper is almost easier. That is why Chippendale is famous”. The spaces we inhabit are a reflection of who we are – and to translate our aspirations into a living environment is the pursuit of an Interior Designer. India is home to many interior designers that are masters of their craft and have paved the way for many young talents to explore and grow within the profession of Interior Design. These lesser-known talents are bringing new ideas to the table and pushing the standards of design to greater heights, one project at a time.
