Artfully Modern. Interiors by Richard Mishaan
"Follow-up volume to Richard Mishaan's first monograph, Modern Luxury, showcasing the AD100 designer's most outstanding projects of the past five years. Interior designer Richard Mishaan believes that furniture, decorative accessories, and art with inherently good form can be combined successfully regardless of style, period, or price. He creates exuberant, bold, glamorous spaces that are nevertheless comfortable above all. In his work, every room is treated to at least one small luxury: bespoke embroidery on a wall covering, nail head trim on a chair, or a screen covered in an unexpectedly modern material. Mishaan believes that the best interiors are layered and rich. He skilfully brings together furnishings and objects from myriad periods--Italian neoclassic, seventeenth-century French, African tribal, Art Deco, Biedermeier in a contemporary fusion style that has become his signature. This volume covers Mishaan's best work since 2009 and includes a dozen spaces of every scale, from gemlike but diminutive city apartments to Hamptons estates and even the presidential suite at the St. Regis Hotel. Accompanying text gives tips on how to live well in any size dwelling and provides ideas for truly personalising spaces and for injecting areas devoted completely to comfort in every room. "
