We met in Italy in 2009, while in IED. Not long after, our collegiality turned into a real friendship. Having graduated in the capital of interior design – Milan, we set ourselves a goal to come back to Bulgaria and apply what we have learned. We have a strong desire to succeed in our homeland and, by achieving this, also make it more beautiful than it already is. We believe that when a person is stubborn and truly loves his work, nothing is able to stop him from realizing his dreams.
After our homecoming, we started working in already established interior studios, where we gained a lot of valuable experience, which that enhanced our practical skills and introduce us to the professional practices in Bulgaria.
As we further improved our skills, we decided to start working together and soon, the idea for M + Y Design was born. This was nothing else but a step towards the realization of our vision. For us, design is passion, beauty and tranquility. We learned to merge beauty with practicality in one, to combine modern design with comfort, all while leaving behind a sense of harmony and beauty that can be sensed everywhere.
