  • 1. THE CULTURE OF DESIGN – The Modern Interior Designer Interiors by Robin Lechner Designs robin@robinlechnerdesigns.com 305.940.7892 / 631.848.8469 The continually shrinking world and increasingly expanding internet has impacted significant cultural changes. In addition to the growing synergy and cross pollination of design, fashion, food, and automotive industries, the role of Interior Designer has experienced a transformative evolution. As a child growing up in the 50’s, I adored accompanying my designer Mother and Aunt on showroom visits, and taking samples to clients. At that time, quality design showrooms were open to the trade only, and every family I knew hired a designer. Back then, the traditional role of Interior Designer was that of gatekeeper of design. With Tom Felicia at Kravet Today, with the internet, everyone has access to product, and design is available to anyone. However, with thousands of options offered in any one category, accessibility becomes overwhelming, creating its own set of challenges. To address issues that arose out of internet overload without instruction on how to curate, the role of Interior Designer inevitability evolved to fit modern needs. The new model of Interior Designer is that of editor and curator of the culture of design that combines the utilization of the internet as a springboard of inspiration and the involvement of the client with on site (opposite of online) sourcing of product creation. After navigating the overabundance of internet resources to create a conceptual framework for customized design, the Interior Designer includes the client in on select meetings with contractors and trades people. The client experiences the collaboration of the inspiration of the designer with the talent of the artisan, and technical product development of the manufacturer. The experience instills confidence, builds trust and an understanding of product creation and development. With Carol Teti at Decorative Crafts Today’s interior design experience is modern, approachable, and interesting. It’s an accumulation of meaningful experiences with a depth of understanding of the end product, resulting in engaging and functional interior design schemes that reflect the unique needs and lifestyles of clients. Modern Interior Design is an authentic lifestyle concept with design schemes that are honest and reflect client aesthetics. Clients exploring wall surface materials
