The life of an interior designer often means dealing with very difficult, opinionated and demanding clientele and in the premiere episode of the second season of Top Design, the designers are presented with exactly that.
The designers are faced with a challenge about survival and will have to work in teams to create a fashionable yet functional space - the real challenge however, will be if they can survive working with each other.
In the fourth episode of "Top Design," the contestants are broken up into teams and will re-design the bachelor pads of three very different men on a very limited budget. Everyone's favorite obsessive-compulsive house-flipper, "Flipping Out's" Jeff Lewis stops by as guest judge.
The fifth episode of "Top Design" pushes the contestants to their creative limits, as they each have to compete in an interior design triathlon. There will be twists and turns along the way and in the end, only one designer will be declared the winner and another will be sent home.
In the sixth episode of "Top Design," the contestants will re-design the new offices for an environmental consulting firm that helps government, non-profit and corporate clients address critical challenges in the environment. The designers will each get their own office to redecorate, but they must work together as a whole to create one cohesive look for the entire workspace.
Every interior designer needs a vision and in the seventh episode of "Top Design," the contestants are asked to take that vision into the future. The contestants creativity and imagination are put to the test and the ideas are limitless.
Inspiration can come from anything and in the eighth episode of "Top Design," the challenge is all about testing the designers' ability to design a room around one specific item. Simon Doonan, Creative Director of Barneys, will help decide, when he stops by as a guest judge.
In the final episode of "Top Design," the designers are given the ultimate challenge, decorating a house from top to bottom. In the end, two designers will be sent home and one will be named the winner of "Top Design."
