You do not have to be Karim Rashid to feel like a fulfilled interior designer.
After 10 years as an interior designer, I felt depressed.
Other interior designers who have not been in the industry as long have a better reputation than I do.
Do not get me wrong, I had my clients and a stable presence in the industry. But in a way, I regretted that my projects were not published in the national magazines.
I thought I had missed my calling and should be doing something else.
On the one hand, I was doing what I enjoyed, which was working with people and helping them improve their environment or create a new environment tailored to their needs.
But seeing other people’s designs as inspiration did not give me a sense of peace.
One day, I confided my dilemma to a client. We were working on furnishing her apartment in a pop style that was heavily inspired by Karim Rashid.
Her reaction took me completely by surprise.
When I told her about my dilemma, she said. Mr. Maciek, I could never have done this interior without you.
You are my Karim Rashid.
Do what you like to do. Work the way you like to work. Try to help others while doing what you do.
And it does not matter if you are Karim Rashid for the masses or for a single person.
