When it comes down to who to hire for a design project, many people are unsure whether to hire an architect or an interior designer. It’s true that many interior designers have some knowledge and training in architecture, similarly, many architects have knowledge and training in interior design; however, each professional comes with their own level of expertise and skills.
At Sklar Furnishings, we don’t necessarily believe in hiring one over the other because we view their roles inextricably intertwined. The exterior design and massing of a building cannot be separated from that of its interior. As such, there remain some skills that necessitate the hiring of both professionals.
Sklar has a strong history of architects working closely with our interior design team, and producing extraordinary results. The success of our design projects stem from the fact that many architects find working with our Director of Design—who is licensed in the state of Florida—very easy. In addition, our interior designers specialized knowledge of ergonomics, furniture, materials and finishes are what give the architects insight which then encourages an exchange of ideas that allows us as a team to create projects that not only work for clients but are exceptional in design and function.
If you’re an architect and want to learn more about what promotions and benefits are available to you and your clients, or how we could together serve a client’s vision, contact us and we’ll happily get in touch.
