Born in Colombia, Richard Mishaan, featured in the AD100 2016, began his career by apprenticing in the offices of Philip Johnson after receiving a BA from New York University and attending Columbia University School of Architecture.
The Mishaan touch, stylistically, is an expansive one, which is not surprising beucause, he himself is an expansive person. His combined knowledge of fashion, architecture, and interior design, plus his cultural roots, give him a deep understanding of luxury and quality.
Over his 20-plus-year career, Colombian-born interior designer Richard Mishaan has built a reputation for being the ultimate mix master. A favorite among collectors, he arranges disparate elements, like a 17th-century console for example, and a striking contemporary sculpture, into harmonious juxtapositions.
Here are some of the most iconic projects of the Interior Designer:

According to the designer, “The best interiors are layered and rich… I adore creating synergy between collected pieces whose common thread is a tonality, a texture, or simply the excitement they evoke in the client who chose them..”
Mishaan has authored two books, Modern Luxury and Artfully Modern both published by Monacelli Press, a division of Random House. Artfully Modern was released in November of 2014.
