Here are the style design that inspired the vignettes as described by Mr. Pojie Pambid, Dean of the Philippine School for Interior Design:
Mid Century Modern
Styles that brought about an iconic design development from 1933 – 1965. The Mid Century Modern movement highlighted furniture pieces that have become mainstays of tasteful, current and trendy interiors and have brought back the class and elegance of vintage styles. Pieces that go well with modern interior design yet are iconic enough to stand out as accent pieces mark the reputation of Mid Century Modern designs that have been the hallmark of designers with excellent palates in avant-garde designs.
Simplicity, functionalism and minimalism characterize this design movement that started making waves in the 1950’s. Furniture pieces that have been labeled as stylish and modern with a very distinct retro vibe make this design trend a staple in interior design especially with people who have a timeless feel for the classy and the functional. Pieces that spell excellent design aesthetics with a very pronounced nod to excellent craftsmanship as well resonate as to why these pieces have carved a well-deserved niche in the interior design industry and are here to stay.
These are styles and pieces that have withstood the boundaries of time – timeless, elegant and with a certain old-world charm. Strongly influenced by a solid historical and period basis, these are furniture pieces that evoke a certain design maturity and ageless class, for people who appreciate the finer things in life and for individuals who recognize quality. These are pieces reserved for those with discerning tastes, with a critical design palate and for those who value a sense of nostalgia. An understanding for the pure, the good and the beautiful sets this style apart as a cut above the rest, reserved for designers who know and revel in their origin, evolution and history.
The industrial style centers on the use of iron, concrete, wood and bricks. The style is raw and rough with a certain penchant for a vibe that is urban and cosmopolitan with traces of the trendy and the avant-garde. Furniture pieces are concentrating on leather and wood with cast iron accents creating a look that is personal and individual. The industrial style originated during the turn of the century when machine made products was the rave and it has since evoked an atmosphere that designers find unique and distinctive. People who find the industrial style are those who value a certain sense personal style and are not afraid of thinking out of the box.
The Neo Baroque style is a reaction that highlights the details that made the baroque style famous in the 17th and 18th century; that is – the opulence and extravagance, the use of gold and crystals and the lavish look that is characterized by excessive carving. The “neo” version though employs the use of achromatic tones, with the same love for crystals and mirrors and a lot of tufted furniture. The look is very stylish and quite sophisticated. The design is perfect for city living with style and substance while at the same time maintaining a frivolous character still attributed towards its original namesake.
