Mexican art in interior design


21 Mar 2019

Mixing tradition and innovation has become a trend in design. Throughout the years, design brands that collaborate with Mexican artisans have emerged not only to bring the iconography, colors and detailing of Mexican craftsmanship back into homes, but also to bring attention once again to their artisanal talent and to keep their traditions alive.

Indigenous communities express their culture’s roots in their work, where elements like the iconography of these communities have rich graphics and fine attention to detail. By incorporating their iconography into decorative elements, new propositions are created, their traditions are preserved, and homage is paid to the hands that create these products.

Contemporary interior design seeks to add colorful elements which complement the clean-cut, monochromatic design of a room. Incorporating crafts brings needed vitality to a room and open the way to the sophisticated Mexican decorative style.
