Last Friday, on 5th of March, Claudia Afshar went live with DelightFULL’s mid-century lighting brand. She spilled all her secrets about design, and if you didn’t have the chance to see it, don’t worry, we will tell you all the details about the live interview with the renowned LA Designer!
The designer has an amazing portfolio filled with clean, sophisticated and functional High End Residential, Hospitality and Specialty Commercial Interiors Nationwide. From sunny Los Angeles, California, the mind behind Claudia Afshar Design accepted our invitation, and we had a lovely conversation regarding design and how it can be a useful tool to solve the world’s issues.
Claudia Afshar needs no introduction. The designer and founder/CEO of Claudia Afshar Design Studio, has been making waves in the design industry due to her incredible fresh, sophisticated, and functional residential design projects.
Sometimes it can be hard to get a conversation started, first questions always make us nervous, however the designer is used to it. Maria Saiz was the person conducting the live interview and her first question was precisely about the first doubts of the designer’s clients.
The most important part to Claudia is to understand how she’ll be able to create a space that reflects who we are and an interior that evokes emotions. Regardless of her unique design style, she is concerned about delivering a final result that matches the client’s needs and wishes. “Ultimately, they are looking for us to maximise how the space is used, bring insight into how to achieve this and execute in a way that is top quality, longstanding, durable and addresses their needs and desires.”
Claudia Afshar grew up between London and the British Countryside, surrounded by great design influence. She apprenticed at her Mother’s award winning interior design firm, Living in Space, while she learned architectural design and ground-up development from her Father’s successful large-scale property firm. Claudia even shared with us that it wasn’t hard to find her own design signature, and that it wad a privilege to grew up surrounded by so many design inspiration.
Besides her family, the designer is one of the biggest fans of Mr. Christian Liaigre, that unfortunately passed away recently.
Maria Saiz also took the chance to ask more details and some secrets about Claudia’s amazing design projects! The designer shared that one of the most challenging projects was to create the house of a celebrity while he was recording a new movie and only saw his home when it was already ready! Our viewers were super excited and wanted to know the name of the mysterious celebrity that trusted Claudia Afshar for such an important task. The designer decided to reveal the secret to DelightFULL’s followers, and they went crazy when she said the name of the comedian Martin Lawrence!
The renowned LA designer has accomplished so much in her career, however we can feel the excitement she has on going on with her incredible ideas and experience new areas. Soon she’ll be launching a special rug collection, and the team of Claudia Afshar Luxury interiors is “Currently we are working on some lovely projects, both locally in California and nationwide. We have a beautiful contemporary new build overlooking stunning lake views up in Idaho, gorgeous renovations in La Canyada and Beverly Hills and a stunning contemporary new build in Holmby Hills, to name a few. We are also collaborating with various companies in showroom design, retail and commercial design as well as product development. The art of my design work is to interpret client’s requirements and make something that they truly love living in. This excites me and continually inspires both me and my team to develop new concepts and to transform the spaces we are given into unique and luxurious environments.”
