THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
Merve Kahraman doesn’t need an introduction. The interior designer is one of the most respected in North America, due to her ability to mix Mid-Century with Modern. She unveils the most luxurious and authentic projects you’ll ever get to see in design industry. Today we’ll let you know more about her work as well as present you with some of her most fantastic tables.
It all began when the designer entered the education path – she went to study Interior Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design, in Milan. After some successful years, she moved to London to study MA Product Design in Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. During this period, she worked in several architecture and design studios in London, New York and Istanbul including Tom Dixon and Tord Boontje.
It was after grad school, that Merve Kahraman found some challenges in the construction of her career. “After finishing grad school when I decided to create my own brand instead of working in an architectural office. It took some courage to make that decision. Knowing that it was the right decision encouraged me”.
The designer found her inner strength and empowerment and took the right step towards her amazing success, which is now a great part of her as a professional within the interior design world.
It’s through the humor that she practices her art, whether on interior design or even industrial design, an area where she specialized. Conceptualizing her work style as “unique, daring and nostalgic”, she displays the most incredible projects, that are able to demonstrate bold settings, as well as a Mid-Century style décor, that is embellished with some modern twists. With that style base in mind, she focuses on placements with custom pieces of furniture, typically retro, with their geometric and asymmetric features.
Her decision to specialize in industrial design, comes from the thought and desire of wanting to include furniture and products as an integral part of her designs for spaces. That means that the search for customized pieces, that you won’t see anywhere, are what really transforms every space, into the style that’s desired by potential clients. “When my designs make people happy and when they develop an emotional attachment towards them”. That’s why she does what she does everyday so magnificently, to create special and personalized projects that evoke an immense satisfaction. Merve Kahraman is able to impress her audience through the authentic description of her designs, “with the stories behind them as well as my inspirations whether it is coming from nature or from mythology or space”.
The interior designer establishes herself through design icons such as Achille Castigioni and Piero Fornasetti, who are the perfect icons to inspire her into new and exquisite projects. Those projects that she embraces, are usually due to “inquiries for the client’s personal space where they share it with their families which makes it more intimate”. That makes Merve Kahraman the go-to designer to establish familiar and sophisticated settings, where a family is perfectly capable of feeling comfortable and safe.
