By Roberta KaplanThe Washington TimesThe U.S. is in the midst of a revival in interior design.
While there are many styles to choose from, the trend is shifting towards natural, organic materials.
The trend is growing because the demand for interior design has been driven by the recession, says Marc Niebuhr, a landscape architect who has been a member of the Institute of Design Professionals since 1998.
Niebla is also the author of “Designing the Home: Designing Your Own Home in the Age of Digitalization.”
As the number of homes has declined in recent years, the demand has been growing for natural materials, such as wood, stone, and clay, Niebs said.
Niesbla and other architects believe that the resurgence in the style of interior design reflects this trend.
The idea that natural materials are the best materials is the result of a need to be able to build something that’s sustainable, environmentally friendly, and socially responsible.
Niebs, whose firm Nieber Design has offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, says that he believes that the design and construction of homes should be done in a way that is socially responsible and economically sustainable.
He says that the idea of natural materials is that the home is a living space, and that it is a place that is environmentally friendly.
In the past, homes were constructed using materials that were made from fossil fuels, like coal, oil, and natural gas, and then reassembled with additional materials to create a finished product.
Nierbuhrs team says that this approach is no longer the case.
Natural materials are far less expensive and less difficult to source.
Natural materials are much easier to recycle.
Niestr has seen that in her clients who are using reclaimed wood for walls, windows, and floors, Niestrs design is now able to recycle the materials that have been recycled.
She said that they have also seen a surge in interest in reclaimed materials for interior construction because of the increasing demand for the product.
“The desire for reclaimed materials has been very high, and I think that this has helped a lot,” she said.
Nierbum says that she has found that the demand is building in a number of different ways, especially in the U.K., France, Germany, and the United States.
The trend has been spurred by the fact that many people have been forced to sell their homes because of housing affordability issues, especially for people in the middle class.
“There is a real feeling that you need to find a new home and you need a new lifestyle, and you have no choice,” Nierbs said, “and this is the new normal.”
