“I imagined the place as a spacious and bright structure in the nature, located in French Riviera. The combination of textures, colours and materials combined with the romantic design of the Rattan Dining Room created a balanced combination in the space, which evokes a nostalgic and traditional structure in style. The balance of the space provided the users with an area where they can enjoy for a long time’’

What does it mean to design for you?

Design is a way of thinking and a view of life for me. The sense of being original and free in the sense of design means to pursue homogeneous impressions patiently, not to be afraid of thinking, smelling, touching and feeling. It means to look at the current problems from a perspective that no one has ever looked at, to take advantage of the opportunities provided by developing materials and technologies and to produce new solutions.

Design creates value by adding new products, structures, new services and new ways of doing business to our lives. For me, objects and structures are meaningful experiences, not just necessities.

When you were designing this place, what inspired you?

I imagined the place as a spacious and bright structure in the nature, located in French Riviera. The combination of textures, colours and materials combined with the romantic design of the Rattan Dining Room created a balanced combination in the space, which evokes a nostalgic and traditional structure in style. The balance of the space provided the users with an area where they can enjoy for a long time.

How we should use Rattan Dining Room within decoration? And what are the essential components of it?

Rattan Dining Room can adapt to different styles with its elegant and romantic design. It can balance the space in a masculine structure, while at the same time strengthening a simple structure with details of form and shape. The variety of colours and textures in the chair fabric, bronze tumbled metal products that can be used on the highboard and console, objects compatible with the structure, and a contrasting colour carpet that can be used under the white Rattan Dining Room Set will make the dining room set very prominent.

What are the outstanding trends of 2019?

With the recent development of the ‘’design for everyone” philosophy, a large mass wants their homes to be unique and special. Therefore, they prefer unusual products in furniture shopping. On the other hand, we are all used to artificial and cold environments, especially people living in cities. Ironically, naturalness itself began to seem extraordinary. Therefore, designers and interior designers will direct their aims to nature. Therefore, in 2019, designers will prepare pieces that are adaptive to nature and functional at the same time.
