Interior design has an intellectual property problem
from Business of Home
Interior designers are artists: What they create for their clients is a unique expression of their vision, tailored to a specific space. Designed rooms manifest the art of living. It’s a shame, then, that designs are often denied true authorship. Like any piece of art — or any creative product — an interior designer’s work should be protected as intellectual property, ideas that belong solely to them and are non-transferrable. This has been a fundamentally challenging notion to put into practice, but recent trends in client relations, social media sharing, and knockoff design markets make a strong case that something needs to be done.
