Italians are known to have a flair for design. Their love for their home goes above the norm. Italian homes, no matter what size, small or large, or decorated and arranged in unique and beautiful ways. The characteristics of Italian designers are open, well-lighted, airy spaces while designing to create beauty along with maximum comfort, functionality, and appeal. They have dominated the design market since the mid-forties and even carried their efforts of design into furniture design which has had a clear role as a global trendsetter.

 

A second characteristic of Italian designers is trying to bring as much of the exterior into the interior of a house. This is done by the use of the strategic placement of windows that open up into the garden. Also the use of floating ceilings and open kitchens gives a feeling of space. Most Italian designers like the uncluttered look of a home which adds to the appeal of a room being larger than it is.

 

Many of Italy’s houses have survived from the past showing their durability while not sacrificing beauty like the Tuscan Villas and the Mediterranean beach houses. Italian designers’ fine taste began as a hobby of the Italian nobility from Roman times and it has stay with them from generation to generation. This culture is dominated by beauty and creativity which we have seen though art, design, and architecture. The Italians’ idea for good design should inundate design and products for all levels of society.

 

Even in the smallest houses created today, Italian designers are one of a kind. They allocate space, doors, and windows to give a feeling of open space. Along with the lighting and furniture placement, these houses have an appeal for the human eye. The furniture used is often multi-functional to get the most space and use possible. For example a sofa may be used as a sofa during the day and changed into a pull-out bed in the evening.

 

If there is a need for a good designer, find an Italian designer and implement his or her ideas into your home. You will marvel over the creation.
