Design Bloggers Conference - Interview with Barbara Barry and Kravet

As a continuation from Part 1 of my interview with Barbara Barry's on her inspiration and view of the world of interior design, I wanted to share a deeper look into how these visuals and moments of inspiration translated in a very tangible way into Barbara's work.

"I believe in beautiful process being as important as beautiful product.

If you enjoy and engage with whom you are working then you produce something made with love." - Barbara Barry
Around Beauty: 

Whether designing for a client, or designing a collection of fabrics for a brand such as Kravet, ..

"Working with Kravet has been a beautiful process right from the beginning. It has turned into a trusted relationship and when trust is present you have the confidence to show your ideas and do your best work."

or even lighting such as this beautiful floor lamp for Visual Comfort..

.. I am fascinated by the process and I always enjoy seeing them put into action and how the story of each home and design unfolds.
