Designer Crush: Ryan Korban

I guess I've been living under a rock, because it wasn't until last week that I was introduced to Ryan Korban's work.  At only 30, Ryan has designed spaces for the likes of Alexander Wang and James Franco. Ryan's approach to interior design infuses a timeless sensibility with a sense of lost romance, fantasy, and a strong fashion influence.  He toys with the idea that our living spaces can be exact and polished- while still being comfortable and livable.

Ryan originally moved to New York to study theater.  However, he quickly realized it wasn't the acting he was interested in- it was the sets!  So, with little formal t raining, Korban jumped in to the design world by first launching and designing a Tribeca accessories store, Edon Manor:


Ryan always seems to include a taxidermy piece somewhere in his spaces, and even has a taxidermy zebra in his NY apartment:










Luxury and sumptuousness ooze from his interiors.  From lacquered surfaces to faux fur (let's hope it's faux!) to brass finishes, I love that he doesn't shy away from luxury and manages to make it livable.  I plan to scoop up his new coffee table book to add to my collection.
