Home Decor Inspiration at FIAC 2009


FIAC is one of the big annual art expos in Paris during the month of October. The name FIAC stands for International Fair of Contemporary Art. This year I noticed that many exhibiting artists were inspired by home decor.

Juan Montoya Design




One of the most acclaimed designer in the United States today. Born in Colombia he graduated from Parsons School of Design. He founded Juan Montaoya Design in 1978. He also designs furniture. Despite what Juan Montoya said, " "The client and space dictate what style I will be working in. I consider myself a tailor who finds the best materials to clothe an interior in the most appealing and comfortable manner, down to the last detail", there is a Juan Monoya style:  the closest attention to detail,  a South American sense of color and a love of quality art work
