A new wave of interior designers have brought forth innovation, awe-inspiring designs and an almost-obsessive appreciation for detail. We recently covered 10 stellar studios – all established within the last five years – that are turning heads with their fresh approach. In this article, we share under-40 interior designers that have accomplished so much in so little time. Know their names, we are sure to see more of them soon!


Wildly popular on Instagram by her handle StyledbyPT, Priscilla Tan started out in fashion and jewellery, and had a short stint in art therapy, before finding her rightful spot in the interior design industry. After designing many homes and boutiques, the creative says she especially finds joy in putting together a good shelfie. Her project made the cover of Home & Decor’s September 2018 issue.

This architecture graduate, who is a partner in design firm Wynk Collaborative, has worked on everything from master planning to architectural works. The highlight of his career so far, though, is designing the tech-enabled grocery concept Habitat by Honestbee. Jian Xin starts every design with a user-centric point of view, and adds layers that are physically and experientially interesting.

Jade’s unique designs – she works with local interior firm The Local Inn.terior – have caught the eye of many on Instagram. Interesting stories fuel her designs, so she looks forward to the monthly shareand- improve sessions organised by The Local Inn.terior, as well as chats with her clients. Her creative habit? Staying away from Pinterest, and instead booking stays in nice hotels (with a measuring tape in tow!).
