Richard Mishaan Design is not just any design firm. In New York City, real estate is big business. It’s a virtual party for real estate developers. A lot of designers go into this business as well. But Richard Mishaan just released a book with an entirely different approach than all the other designers.
The book is called Artfully Modern. He has all sorts of pictures in it. He does not like when people say no to a design or apartment because it is not expensive enough. He thinks it should be more about the design, not about the money. Richard Mishaan also has a shop in Greenwich Village. He sells all sorts of things. He sells sofas. Some sell for less than a hundred dollars. He has these same sofas in his own apartment. In fact, he has had the same sofas for twenty years, always refurbishing them, simply because they look so nice. Pictures of the sofas are some of what go into the book.
In the book, you can tell how much Richard Mishaan loves colorful designs. This is also apparent in his house. There is a kitchen that is white and blue and flame stitches and stripes all over the place. Richard Mishaan is a designer who dares to mix various colors. He is one who dares to mix various designs from various eras. He is not afraid of anything and always creates stunning masterpieces.
Richard Mishaan was born in Columbia and raised in Italy. He moved to New York in 1978. He started Richard Mishaan Design, which became known for the Mishaan Touch, a certain style and flavor that people came to recognize as amazing.
He still has his old home in Cartagena, Columbia. There, he goes for vacations. Like his home in the Hamptons, it is designed in a stunning manner. In fact, he designed it like a boutique hotel. He fills both his New York home and his Columbia home with rich paintings of all sorts of things. There are sculptures and works of art, and they raised their son and daughter in that home. In his bedroom in his Columbia home, there are eleven paintings of tall ships.
