Interior Design as an Art Form

A modern living room designed as an artful interior.

Interior design is an art form and sometimes the artists achieve a room that is innovative and unique or simply stylish.  These highly chic rooms contain elements that elevate their design to a level of style that makes us appreciate the art that goes into them.  Just like a painting or significant work of sculpture, a room design speaks to us.  Let’s take a look at some rooms that illustrate interior design as an art form.
