SV International Design is a multidisciplinary company synonymous with design integrity and bespoke elegance of exceptional quality. Our brand encompasses four distinct yet complementary divisions: Hotel Projects, Interior Styling, SV CASA (our retail brand) and Brand Representation.

Using an experienced team of designers, consultants, project managers and artisans, we provide design services and tailor-made products to an international clientele that has included over 180 hotels and leading retailers.

At SV International Design, we understand that every project is different. As such, we have developed the capability to adjust any design accordingly, whether that means creating custom pieces, mixing materials and fabrics, or simply offering an excellent standard version of our products in order to achieve our client’s goals.
