New York is a city filled with many interior designers. Being the financial center in the world, New York might, in fact, have the highest number of interior designers. In such a congested marketplace, it is almost impossible for designers and their companies to stand out consistently. One exception to this rule, however, has been Richard Mishaan Designs, which is run by Richard Mishaan.
Richard Mishaan Designs could not have scaled the heights it has in recent years without the vision and expertise of Mr. Mishaan. While originally born in Colombia, and briefly raised in Colombia, Mr. Mishaan is today one of the most respected designers in the country having had a career that has spanned more than two decades.
Mr. Mishaan has the uncanny ability of combining different styles and colors. When you look into any of the homes under Richard Mishaan Design’s portfolio, you begin to notice significantly juxtaposing items from different errors that should not work, but still somehow seem to fit in just fine. Perhaps it’s a skill Mr. Mishaan developed having grown up in different parts of the world.
As a result of the way Richard Mishaan Designs goes about its work, it has developed a reputation for individualization. No single project completed by the company looks like the next one. As a designer, Mr. Mishaan has always stated that his work is not about simply creating a beautiful interior but also tailoring that interior to the clients. In a way, therefore, Richard Mishaan delivers art that can best be described as a manifestation of the client’s vision.
To combat the notion that a luxurious look has to be expensive, Mr. Mishaan has published two books that provide simple design solutions to normal homeowners. Modern Luxuries, his first book, was published in 2009, while Artfully Modern, his second book, was published in 2014.
