Tham ma da: The Adventurous Interiors of Paola Navone


Italian architect and designer Paola Navone’s conceptual work has made her well-known in the home decor and hospitality worlds; won her awards; and led her to work with many brands over her 30+ year long career. On her travels all over the world, finding products and inspiration, Navone discovered the Thai phrase “tham ma da,” meaning “everyday.” Despite Navone’s eye for design and interiors being entirely extraordinary, this approach to the simple or the everyday permeates her process—she takes the ordinary, and makes it remarkable.
