I'm coming home

Junilla Bakridi is an interior designer. She does not use one concept, but she designs based on the client's request. “From private homes, restaurants and salons to hotels: I do everything. I focus on the high segment, but it is very important to me that I am approachable. It should not be so difficult that people get the idea that you have to be extremely wealthy to hire a designer. I do a lot turn key deliveries, but if someone has a lower amount to spend, I can do something with that too. Then it becomes none turn key delivery, but I can help someone with his or her project. The client must feel at home with me. As a designer you are very involved with the client on a personal level. So for me, personality and taking care of the customer is of great importance,” says Junilla.

Comfort is the key to…

“Before I accept an assignment, I first talk to the client. I translate your story, so there must be a click. I want to know who you are, what you do and what really suits you. To me, luxury means comfort. There are a lot of beautiful designer furniture that do not offer comfort and that is absolutely not what I mean by luxury. When you come home after a day of work, the sofa should be comfortable. If you work at your desk for eight hours, the workplace must be comfortable enough. A typical one Junilla design is tailor-made. Every design I make is unique and every design has its own story. What is most important to me in the design is that my client's story is translated. Mine signature is details: it should not be found with someone else.”
