Cover Story: Interior Design Trends for 2017

Functional Beauty

The most challenging assignment for all interior designers is creating so-called functional beauty. This will be the crucial guidance, if you ask Maira Firzok, the founder and managing director of DeeDecors, a premier designing firm based in UAE. Maira’s team has successfully developed a number of prestigious projects, including designing for Michelle Harrison who has guided the establishment of Costa Coffee in the UAE as well as for the Royal Al Qasimi family of Sharjah and much more. “We at DeeDecors feel that essence behind interior design is the fusion of utility and aesthetics. It is arriving at the perfect balance between the usefulness and beauty in the arrangement of a space.” Times are changing. Life is busy where in most cases both partners are working full time, juggling house chores and kids. Naturally, we all want our home to be elegant and stunning but we also want it to be livable, especially with our kids and pets around. Maira agrees with the common demand for creating houses great to look and easy to manage, but she also stated that good designer must be capable of accomplishing these two requirements even within a limited budget. When it comes to local tendencies, there are two major directions of interior design in the UAE. There is the culture of thought that bases design on local tradition influences and there is the modern school of design that follows the latest trends, techniques, and designs accordingly. In the previous year, these were married together creating a cultural fusion of modern and contemporary, even bringing together different cultural styles. The local natural, yet luxury style has won. It is highly modern and futuristic trend but also involving natural and traditional unique look. Interlocutor Ardakani also thinks that the local and global trends are very close to each other. In his opinion, designers have the responsibility towards humanity to create spaces that educate local community, regardless of its location on the globe. “No matter where you live or work, as a designer, you should contribute and challenge the trends that are more common and try to make them better. Technology has made all countries very close to each other, and we can feel its effects especially in Dubai, as many designers from different parts of the world work here. This fusion of expertise can eventually create a new style that will generate more green, stylish and locality designs
