Dominique Bonet´s deign experience is truly cosmopolitan. Growing up between France and Venezuela, Bonet was taken under the wing of Voguephotographer Franco Rubartelli before going on to co-found Grupo 35 with her husband Salvador. In just a few years, the production company boasted clients such as Visa, Pepsico and Gap, winning numerous international awards. In 2008, Bonet decided to take on a new challenge, founding Lineaire Designs, a company offering full-service design and custom construction at affordable prices.

“My vision was to leverage all the experience I had accumulated during 20 years working as an art director and set designer to penetrate the high-end interior design market”, she says. And she has succeeded brilliantly, crafting beautiful and functional environments for more than 150 upscale project around the world.

Design philosophy: “Work, work and more work. I´m always searching for what talented people are doing around the world. As Picasso said: “Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working”.

Essential must-have: “Every home is different, but what I use in all of them is a dimmer. It might be the simplest features, but it has the power to transforms any room.”

Trend predictions: “Because the world is more connected every day with so many different cultures being mixed together, the tendency in design will keep being eclectic.
