The relationship between art and design is magical. Interior design is not just about aesthetics. It creates a space that is tailored to the function, quality and lifestyle that the client is looking for. By integrating fine art in the design concept, an excellent artwork will invigorate a room with a fresh new perspective. It can establish itself as a focal point, define a colour palette or even set the theme of the space.
Below is our list of top 5 interior designers in Singapore who we think are imaginative, inspiring and intelligent.
