Today I have focused on most standing out store interior designs. in todays world an original outstanding interior design is important in order to compete with big-name chain retailers and because of strong retail market.. It should have brand signature, attract the right customers, stick it to season, sales, current trends, and be outstanding and original. We can see the trend of big brands moving onto high street in order to be easily accessed, large screens to display products, virtual fashion mirrors and very stylish designs.
Rodney Fitch, Professor of Retail Design states in Trends , 2012 amid several, the two standouts for me are: firstly, the polarisation between value, expressed by price, versus value expressed by the experience. The former epitomised on the one hand by the inexorable growth of online and on the other by the rise and rise of Poundland culture, where design, except perhaps in the case of Primark, is little evident. Compared with the latter, where good design anchors the experience as in the case say, of Abercrombie + Fitch, Uniqlo or Selfridges. Second, the way innovation in retail design has moved back to New York. More exciting work on 5th and in the Village, than on Bond or Regent Streets or Spitalfields”http://www.designweek.co.uk/news/2012-review-the-year-in-retail-design/3035769.article
