At Formosa Interior Design, we are always sourcing the newest styles and designs coming out of Paris, Milan, London, Tokyo and New York. Yet, sometimes we have to remind ourselves that some amazing contemporary design was created 70 or 80 years ago, way back in the mid 20th Century.
Like art, modern design home furnishings make incredible investments. Not only are they beautiful items to fill your living space, but they also increase with value as time goes on.
