Baroque Interiors is an interior design firm in Addis Ababa established in 2011 by Ms Salome Dagnachew. She entered the market at a time when a number of corporate offices and new residences were springing up around town and required a modern design approach. Bespoke and creative interior design elements applied with skill and finesse was required and Salome was able to meet this challenge admirably after more than ten years experience in procurement, logistics, and facilities management working for an international development organization. For her first notable client, Access Real Estate, Salome developed an understated elegance and unique design that was brimming with exquisite taste.

 

Salome believes that by paying greater attention to detailed customer requirements, this can also be applied to any business customer in Ethiopia with a well-defined corporate persona to enable the interior design of workspaces to include form, function, efficiency, and customer receptiveness to reflect the corporate values and style of the individual company. The interior designing is based on one of ‘customization’ and ensures that the corporate branding is part of every design and styling decision of the new work environment such as usage designation, space allocation, partitioning, colour schemes, furniture selection, layout and deployment of facilities, etc. She also believes that aesthetics combined with ergonomics are not the only paramount considerations but that technical issues are also equally important since the project effort is usually undertaken and implemented more or less on a turnkey basis. More often than not, they start with an empty, un-partitioned hall, and the transformation depends on the efficient harnessing and utilization of key technical skills and resources provided by the architects, civil, and structural engineers in her team, so that the final result is more the synergistic output of a harmonized team effort. Over the years, Baroque has undertaken a diverse range of notable interior design assignments including the Bole International Airport VIP terminal and major private sector corporations including the entire design, procurement and office fitting of Asku & Berhane Investment Group (ABIG)

(consisting of 8 floors and 2 basements), NGO’s and private residences.

 

The main business activity of Baroque Interiors and Events is the design and styling of homes, hotels, restaurants, bars, shops, beauty salons, spas, showrooms and office interiors based on turnkey contracts. The company is also involved in events planning and management.
