Interior Design Ideas for Commercial Spaces
Interior Design Tips for Designers
Designers are typically visual people, and they draw inspiration from viewing photographs and reading about other designers’ work. In each issue, Contract magazine features a variety of interior design project ideas, including retail, hospitality healthcare, education, civic, and adaptive reuse projects. These projects, as well as additional special features, are also available to be viewed on our website. Galleries of images offer endless inspiration for architects and interior designers and are supported by articles—which explain the backstory of projects, as well as materials and technologies incorporated, and specific challenges the designers faced. Contract features interior design and architecture projects built in the U.S. as well as projects located around the world. We have recently featured great interiors from every continent. Some interiors we feature are located within freestanding buildings, while others occupy tight urban spaces. These projects incorporate a range of materials, from more traditional to cutting-edge and sustainable. The projects featured are influenced by their unique contexts and the needs of the clients who commissioned them, but also reflect the creativity of their designers. Our editors are always searching for the newest and greatest projects in the world of interior design to feature within the pages of our magazine and website. Designers seeking interior design ideas, interior decorating ideas, interior design tips, and architecture ideas can find all of these and more on the pages of Contract’s website. The projects and products featured here provide an endless source of modern interior design ideas for our readers.
Additionally, Contract also focuses on the business of design, sharing insight into the operation of design firms, analysis of industry trends, and profiles of outstanding individuals. Readers can count on the latest architecture news related not only to new buildings and projects, but also industry organizations such as the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), and the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). We are tapped into the goings on at major design firms, and also bring our readers stories written by these knowledgeable professionals. Contract also offers a weekly newsletter subscription that delivers these stories straight to your inbox.
