Home Away from Home Design  

25.07.17

Although Iggi Interior Design is based in Surrey with an established client base in London and the Home Counties - we have a global reach with a growing number of international projects within our portfolio including private commissions in Europe and the Middle East.

As much as we love designing beautiful homes abroad and the chance to travel for work, overseas projects can be more of a challenge logistically. Above all, it's about planning. There’s no point having a beautiful interior's scheme without a fine-tuned planning process in place. A well-managed execution is what creates a successful installation. We always allocate additional time for overseas projects as stages such as shipping and moving items from one country to the next invariably take longer than anticipated. As such, we build in a buffer to our initial timeline to pre-empt any delays. It goes without saying, but it's much nicer to be able to surprise a client with a sooner than expected completion.

Budget is a key aspect to any commission, but the parameters can be more fluid when dealing with an overseas project. This is primarily down to additional costs such as import and customs duties as well as currency pricing differentials. To take account of this, we present detailed budgets and ensure that all 'on costs' are itemised.

Sourcing of items is a further consideration. Iggi works with a number of trusted UK suppliers. Working on international projects however, lends itself to exploring new suppliers and sourcing unique furniture and accessories that are not readily available in the UK. We generally try to use both supplier avenues, working with domestic clients for what they do best and country-specific companies for one-off items. Authentic home design is key to complete the look and feel of any home.
