Selection of furniture is often misrepresented in the design of a house. The architect/designer rarely do an accurate furniture plan. They assume that it is secondary in the design process. nothing could be further from the truth. A house, like and operating theatre in a hospital has a function just as demanding. Geoffrey Brown Design always does an accurate furniture plan to show the true function and size of rooms, the pathways through so the journey from one space to another is fully appreciated. The client can see the logic and practicality of the design.
