Lavradio Design believes that an architectural interior design and decoration project is only finished when fully embodies the client’s wishes. That is why Lavradio Design has no obvious signs. The style of each project should be an expression of who will live or work there. Their style is defined by methodology applied, accuracy and dedication to each project.

Lisete Reis is proof that having two loves is not impossible. A journalist for TVI almost 20 years ago, she created a blog for decoration that improved to a store on Rua de Camões. The store may be small, but it fits all there. There are comfortable armchairs, worked mirrors, various cushions, Portuguese ceramics, among many other things. The all-white decoration it’s one of Lisete’s favourite tendencies, which are peppered with vivid colours, like roses and greens, with some improbable combinations. As for style, there is a bit of everything – “We go from the contemporary to the classic, from Provencal to romantic, with golds and carvings”.

After developing his talent for many years in fashion, in Portugal and Sweden, Artur Miranda diversified into interior design. Following his resolutely modern and innovative design approach for that time in Portugal, he created Oitoemponto in 1993. Two years later, Jacques Bec joined him, bringing his own very personal French touch from Paris. They started working for public and commercial places, but their common taste for sophisticated and personalized surroundings soon leads them to develop their creativity in private places – which is now the main part of their job.
