We are often called upon by potential clients who value professional advice and are usually very design-savvy themselves. They have a very reasonable budget for furnishings and fittings, but not much left over for putting it all together (aka professional design fees). There is a saying: “necessity is the mother of all invention,” and we at Corea Sotropa Interior Design, have had an idea percolating for a while now that solves this problem. We are delighted to introduce the “On Trend Program”.

For the past year and half, the team at Corea Sotropa have been researching, carefully selecting and negotiating pricing on a collection of soft-furniture frames, fabrics, rugs, case goods and lighting from our trusted vendors. All of the items, as the name would suggest, speak to today’s trends yet still have the classically inspired flavor that Corea Sotropa Interior Design is recognized for.  With this program, our clients are still able to receive the high quality custom furniture that they would expect, but with reduced design fees because the leg work has already been completed. While this won’t be the right fit for every client, it is a perfect option for the those who can spend a little extra time and sometimes elbow grease on their project and still receive a considered design based on their unique tastes and lifestyle requirements. The flat fee for design is negotiated in advance on a per-room basis and our team will provide one complete design. The true customization for each client will present itself through the combination of these selections along with the lighting, art work and accessories.

As the program continues to develop, we plan to roll out pre-selected palettes, finishes and fixtures for bathrooms, laundry rooms and kitchens. We are excited to reveal our first recently completed On Trend Project, starting with the fabrics and finishes.
