Portuguese design is up and booming, but the name on everybody’s lips at the moment is Cristina Jorge de Carvalho. The Portuguese artist is both an interior designer and architect, with projects ranging from her own showroom to amazing vacation houses!

Each interior design project is designed as unique, having the client’s personality and lifestyle, as well as the space needs, as the main inspirations. The coding thread that defines all the design projects with CJC signature is based on the balance between clean lines and the intelligent set of volumes, materials and textures. An eclectic and contemporary design approach, where the sobriety of design and comfort find harmony.
