Ilse Crawford on Design

I’ve always admired IISLE CRAWFORD’s sense of the world and how interior design plays a role in it. Through her London-based design studio, Ilse has designed some iconic spaces with her signature feeling of lived-in style , but none more interesting than the atmosphere she created in her London loft.

“The design world has become a bit of a club. It needs to look beyond its boundaries and be aware of what’s going on around it economically, socially and politically.”

“Innovation is very important, but I think we need to take a step back to move forward sometimes.”

“You don’t need masses of new ideas, you just need to apply the ones you have with conviction and commitment.”

“Sometimes you can be kind of stuck, and you just scan the library and think, aha!”

“I don’t just look at the visual, I’m much more interested in the sensory thing, in thinking about it from the primal perspective, the thing that touches you.”

“Integrity is more important than decoration.”
