For our final blog this month, things will be a little different. Last week we came across a fantastic in-depth article by Sara Clark in Veranda. Most of the design styles that we know and love and are so popular today actually stemmed from the ideas and inspiration of talented designers from many years ago. Clark provides a detailed look at the top designers from history and examines their most famous work and their enduring legacies.

Do you know your Alberto Pinto from your Bill Willis? Whose ‘Dragons’ armchair later sold at auction for over $28 million dollars? Who’s considered the mother of interior design?

Follow the link and brush up on your design history. Then, take a look around your own home – do you have anything which was clearly influenced by one of these talented minds?

We drew inspiration from Sara Clark’s article on Veranda. Find her article here.
