If there’s one thing that SD Project can demonstrate, it’s that interior design is far more than just getting the right décor. By evaluating your property or office, and listening to your needs, this Luxembourg interior design firm based in Strassen can optimise a space in a beautifully human manner.

The best fit for every lifestyle
When Christel Stegen founded SD Project with her husband Phillippe two years ago, it was her combination of honesty and eye for harmonious design that sealed the deal. “Our job is not to sell to clients. It’s to advise according to the client’s lifestyle, desires and budget,” she explains. Shaping a space according to their desires is one thing – but SD Project aims to surprise the client: “by presenting things they might not have discovered or liked without our advice.”
Seeing the bigger picture
Their Luxembourg showroom features an impressive collection of Belgian, German and Italian brands to suit a variety of spaces. Christel Stegen is originally Belgian, and draws inspiration from her six years of working in different locations – but for her, it is less about big names and more about high quality. “I love discovering smaller brands of an exceptional standard.” She has reimagined a range of beautiful residential properties: including apartments, houses, chalets and commercial spaces such as offices and shops, and now also exterior spaces. “We curate the space as a whole. Whether it’s a kitchen, living room, meeting space or office – it has to flow from one room to the next. It must also delicately reflect the client’s personality.”
A trusted advisor from start to finish
SD Project guides its clients throughout, and uses its showroom as a tool for inspiration. “We spend a lot of time with our clients, and in the beginning I’ll ask many questions to get to know more about their personality and tastes,” says Christel Stegen. “Some projects might take two months to complete, others two years,” but it certainly seems to be worth it. “It’s a well considered process, which we see out entirely. The best part has got to be when we reveal the final result.”
Made to measure
Shaped according to the individual, each SD Project space is like no other. The firm is particularly proud of each project for different reasons: “We ensure that every space is functional for the person that is going to be using or living in it,” hence why its service is entirely made to measure. Clients can therefore expect high quality, honesty and a wonderfully collaborative experience.
