Conclusion This Digital Book archives a special selection of Interior Design vocabulary. The words that I select are words that have a special meaning or are going to be helpful in my professional work experience and the examples some are a mix of images from internet that I modified to create a new original and personal Image, and some others are my own photos or designs. This Digital book has 20 words organized in 4 different categories. First, “Philosophy words” which are those words related with my personality, my convictions, and the style that I try to implement on my designs. Words like Balance or Adaptation reflects my intention to create new furniture with a sense of equality and coherence with the past and the future. Then, “Technical Words” are words that I think are going to make me look more professional. The more sophisticated the word is, the more professional that I will be. Words like focal point or Boundary that are sophisticated but at the same time are familiar with everyone. The Third category is “Material Words”, I select materials that I like to include on my designs either because they are sustainable like “plywood” or materials that create a special experience like the “Viscoelastic Foam”. Finally, my last type of words is Furniture. On this selection I decided to pick furniture that I didn’t know the name and are popular in every home place.
