1.Who is the owner?
The living room design will not be used by an interior designer or architect but by its owner. To reach success, you need to get to know the owner.
- How is his lifestyle?
- What does he like?
- How is he going to use the room?
- What are the main attributes of his personality?
A living room should always reflect the owner’s personality and lifestyle. It must attend to his needs and his taste, so you should have in count the answers to these basic questions. Understand how he wants to live in his own home.

3.Do your research
If you are an interior designer, you are probably used to this step and you already have some furniture catalogues from the brands you use to work with, right?
When it comes to furniture, go for the ones that are functional and comfortable. However, keep in mind the brands that offer several customization options. This way, you will have much more alternatives to show to your client.
These brands must work with high-quality materials so the furniture can look new every day. To turn your living room even more special, a selection of handcrafted products is the way to go – you want to know why? Well, each product is unique, and you will support the local economy, giving to the brands the possibility to reinvest in their business. You can expect an article about this soon.
