INTERIOR DESIGNER AND CO-OWNER OF EDON MANOR. NEW YORK. ALEXANDER WANG’S DESIGNER
Ryan Korban’s style and ascetic are unmatched. I love his use of black, his keen eye for art, and his use of texture in a space. Also, how cool is his tattoo?! As noted above, Korban designed Alexander Wang’s first store and his Tribecca apartment. In many of Korban’s bedrooms he uses fur pillows or throws. He mentions his love for fur several times in his Q&A below! I have been eyeing (from afar) these beauties from West Elm to add a little texture to our bed. I have a DIY in my head that I might try out (to avoid that West Elm price tag). I’ll keep you posted! :)
In our first apartment (almost 4 years ago!) I copied Korban’s idea of hanging artwork with taffetta. I hung a gold mirror in our bathroom using some kind of silk/tafetta type ribbon similar to his. We also painted our bathroom black this past year and I’d like to think it’s my inner Ryan Korban that makes me love it so much. Isn’t his kitchen above dreamy? I’ve seen more recent pictures and it looks like he’s changed it and added wallpaper. If you haven’t checked out Lonny, The Selby, and The Coveteur they are my go to sites for design. At this point in our lives, with Grant in school, we are enjoying using what we have :) and being creative, but I still love to look and pick up things here and there. What beautiful inspiration. Below, a Q&A with Ryan via The Selby (haha, diet coke for breakfast)! Awesome Q&A’s on The Selby from tons of creative people! Check it out.
