Go with the flow or go against the herd? That is the question when it comes to design for architectures. This company came up with an interesting answer to this, neither.
D.I.G founders Craig and James Turner refuse to bow down to trends when it comes to landscape and interior design. They stick to old school design and give it a little twist.
“D.I.G’s preferred style is classic and timeless with a strong emphasis on easy formality but we do work with the architecture as well as the site,” Mr. Tanner said.
“So we need to be flexible with a keen eye and an open mind to the client’s requirements.”
These business owners offer their customers various services ranging from garden design, construction, custom furniture, soft furnishing, upholstery etc. Their company DIG has been in the industry since 1994. They started as a small store in Merthyr Rd.
For their business, they believe that following trends is nature transient. These can often date quickly. Classic design with a twist is the best way to go.
The D.I.G. Design Philosophy
Their design philosophy actually works. Most of the contemporary design age and become outdated. Aligning your interior and architecture with classical design and applying for a few modern twist works.
Advantages of this Design Philosophy
Here are the benefits of this philosophy. This is worth appreciating for your next project
- Classical design is timeless– 5 years and even up to decades, this design will last longer. It will remain beautiful. People will appreciate it for a long time.
- Neutral against time– the problem with applying too much modernity on design is that it will age eventually. The fad will die down. The hype will eventually fade. Classical design remains somewhat immortal through time.
- Twist of modernity– it makes sense to apply a little bit of modernity to classics. Modern design has its own beauty and unique perks. Fusing it gives a modern rendition that people will appreciate.
