The problem is simple but huge. For every interior design project there are three separate and often tedious presentations to be created; the design or moodboard for the client, the book of cut sheets and specs for the drawing set, and the product list for purchasing. On today's desktop, each one is independent and created with different programs, making the process both inefficient and painstaking. Between hunting data, laying out images and assembling the details, the hours pile on, costly mistakes are made, and design budgets shrink.
What if designers could work visually, creating a mood or design board of images, and then magically flip it over to reveal an editable spreadsheet of its contents? Then, flip it again and find a book of customizable cut sheets already made and ready to export or present. This is Ava: the new best friend to designers of all types who want to think and work with images, while allowing precise, as well as beautiful, deliverables to be generated for them. Short for Automated Visual Assembly, Ava is the patent-pending future of interiors added into the new Board Pro. It was invented to package images and information more intelligently - optimizing beauty, clarity, and ease - and allowing designers to navigate seamlessly from process to presentation.
Here are Three New Super Tools that Work with Ava in Board Pro

Sara Plantafève-Castryck is an artist, designer, and freelance wardrobe stylist originally from Antwerp, Belgium. She graduated as a graphic and textile designer who specializes in prints and patterns. She is known for her wide spectrum of experimentations with textiles, utilizing different media.
Her most recent installation; Room with a Lined View, investigates the way patterns and colors work in a space, as well as the dimensionality of the fabric, experimenting with 2D & 3D forms. There is a lot of graphic detail in the piece and it is meant to overwhelm the audience.
When talking about the piece, she stated; "How do they affect the surroundings and how can perfect symbiosis be created between colour, pattern, and the space in which they are depicted."

Mark Lovejoy is an artist currently based in Alpine, Texas. We came across his dope body of work—I can't stop dreaming of diving into the oasis of color. He creates spectacular images that evoke abstracted landscapes from far away, mystical planets. LOVE!

United Kingdom based graphic artist. Creates abstract compositions which are very experimental and ambiguous. We are finding a lot of inspiration in the range of line quality, the natural brush stroke, and the use of color in Velho's graphic art. Besides his fine art he works designing from magazine covers to textiles.

As I continue to search for the perfect wedding gift, I came across some very interesting dinnerware. East Hampton, NY based Sydney Studios produces beautiful ceramic pieces that can stand well alone or complete an entire table setting. Some of the brightly glazed plates, and bowls are pictured below. I would love to see this design style in the form of wallpaper or baby bedding.
John Robshaw designs beautiful print based products for the home. To find inspiration for his line, John travels around the world and works with a nonprofit organization called Aid to Artisans. The orginization connects talented craftspeople in struggling countries to global markets to help their businesses thrive and grow. To create his work he combines the designs and techniques from the different cultures that inspire him. It wouldn't surprise me if the John Robshaw brand expands into wallpaper in the future.
Caitlin McGauley is an NYC based illustrator who works in watercolor. Her subject matter is based on family memories, New York City life and photos people send for her to commission. These amazing illustrations are perfect for Editorial. Maybe one day she will pursue wallpaper! Video here of here on Daily Candy.
Renate Müller has been creating limited quantity toys that are used for therapeutic purposes for handicapped children since the 1960's. These toys became very successful in hospitals as they were used for hand-eye coordination, balance training, and sensory and orthopedic exercises. These toys are highly functional, so beautiful and unfortunately very expensive! I would love to see Renate Mullers estate put out a more accessible series.
