Frederick Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park

San Francisco Design Directors Samuel Lewis and Stephen Kladder of INSTUDIO while visiting Grand Rapids, Michigan over the holiday break spent an afternoon at the Frederick Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park.  Recognized as one of the finest sculpture parks in the country and named one of the top 30 must-see museums in the world by Patricia Schultz, author of “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” ranking Meijer Gardens thirteenth among other celebrated museums.

The Design Directors braved the cold to stroll the Sculpture Garden and were continuously inspired as they rounded each bend and turn of the garden paths.  The cold, grayish day only enhanced the sculpture providing a uniform back drop for the works of art, making the sculpture the focal point of the environment in which they are situated.

Each sculpture was selectively placed to become a visual point to its surroundings.  A principle the Design Directors of INSTUIDO regularly utilize in developing designs and space plans.  As you enter into a space, your eye will naturally be drawn to a focal point.  It is these focal points that the Design Directors use to provide cohesion to a design plan carefully selecting furniture, accessories, and a color palette that enhances the visual focal point and provides a seamless viewing journey through the interior space.

These visual cues, just like the visual cues of the natural environment of the Meijer Sculpture Park, can bring excitement and interest to an interior space.  Let the Design Directors of INSTUDIO help you find your visual vocal point in your interiors and develop a personal design plan for your home.
