Interior Design Spotlight: Collaborative Design Group
March 19, 2014
We love installations of our ceiling tiles that are non-traditional. Don’t get us wrong, a great ceiling or backsplash will completely transform a room, but it’s the unique spaces, uses and innovative design that really gets us excited about all the possibilities with t in. Our interior design partners have no shortage of creativity, and Mickey Bufalini of Collaborative Design Group in Houston, Texas is no exception. With the goal of “breathing new life into a space and enticing you to stay,” one of their founding design principles comes from Paola Antonelli, curator of MOMA, “Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need, and beauty to produce something that the world didn’t know was missing.”
This beautiful home office / craft room was designed to evoke a sense of timelessness. We wanted to create a feeling of the past, like something that had been there for years, and resurfaced many times over. Tin tiles gave us that sense of longevity.
