Number of employees: 15

Decoconcept Company deals with interiors in the broad sense of the word. It was launched a decade ago as a representative office of the leading French trading houses and manufacturers of furniture, millwork and items of décor. Along with this streamline born was the second rapidly growing field of action, which is about to splinter off to form a new full-fledged department — architectural engineering and interior design from the stage of 3D-modeling to final implementation.

Major partners and suppliers, which by now number 14, are brands with a rich history, eminent designers and proprietary unique technologies: Moissonnier, Collection Pierre, Hugues Chevalier and others. Besides furniture in classic and art-décor styles, Decoconcept specializes on French windows, doors, lighting systems, home textile, accessories and English “Smart Home” systems.

Last fall the company decided to buy a new office besides a full-fledged showroom, which it had already had. The office was meant to become a harmonious space for comfortable work and meetings with clients. Having acquired an ex-communal lodging, which was crying for capital repairs, the management got down to working out interior design and layout. Most of this was done by efforts of the CEO and French partners.

For a start laid was a new flooring; old brick masonry was restored and newly-built walls were painted in warm tints of gray.

According to the designers, the newly-arranged interior lacked retro details. So, the choice was set upon outside electric wiring, which forms a nice contrast to wall color and light-colored timber floor.
