Indra Marcinkevičienė – a unique personality. Creating bright, colorful, unconventional and decorative interiors, shifting from contrasting colors and fabrics decisions and sleek geometric parallelism, the designer has formed a distinct and unique style which is recognized and says a lot about the creator. Working in the field of interior decoration, Indra Marcinkevičienė is very close to a variety of works of art (both visual as well as applied), so it is not surprising that the artist has taken the art of furniture design as well.
