Hello Everybody!

When it comes to brick-and-mortar locations, it is the good vibes and appealing exterior and interior of a store that draw customers in, even before the company's products have the chance to do so. Here are some brilliant store interior designs, each built around one concept - whether a nostalgic look into the past, a quirky architectural geometry, or a reproduction of a detail on a large scale.

I hope these inspiring examples will get your creativity going by giving you a few new ideas on how to turn your commercial interior into an unforgettable space. 

Want to learn more about what we do?  You can always follow us on Facebook or see interior design news on our Blog.

Truly yours, EKATERINA KOHLWES principal / designer
