In recent years, the name Richard Mishaan Design has become synonymous with quality and luxurious interior design. If you frequent luxurious residences in New York, the chances are that one of the sophisticated designs you have seen were created or inspired by this design outfit.
The individual behind this work is Richard Mishaan. A man that has previously served as an apprentice to the architecture design great, Philip Johnson. Mishaan’s envious professional background has been complemented by an equally impressive academic journey having studied at New York University and Columbia University. Richard Mishaan Design draws on Mishaan’s accumulated expertise in interior design, fashion, and architecture to create unique works.
The fact that it is so hard to pinpoint particular shared characteristics in the designs created by Richard Mishaan Design points to the amount of individualized effort that goes into every project. No one wants their home looking the same as someone else’s.
That said, a look through Richard Mishaan Design’s extensive portfolio reveals Mishaan’s work to be quite frank and creative. When designing rooms, he goes beyond the common practice of mixing colors to undertake the mixing of styles from various eras. Even the infusion of color in his designs is anything but common, given his colorful childhood in Colombia and Italy. This intricate use of style and color is seen on the 93RD Street Sales Center portfolio highlighted on the Richard Mishaan Design website. One of the rooms features a brown color theme of different hues brought out in stripes and checkered boxes, resulting in a unique ambiance you would not expect in a brown room.
To share his sophisticated tastes and ideas with individuals that may not have access to Richard Mishaan Design, Mishaan has written two books. The first book he authored, Modern Luxury, was released in 2009. The second book was released in 2014. Monacelli Press published both books. Through these books, Mishaan will continue to be an inspiration to many.
