Meet Richard Mishaan, a world leader when it comes to interior design, due to its timeless and artistic interiors, within residential, hospitality and commercial projects. For the past 25 years, the interior designer has been gracing us with unbelievable interiors. To achieve this kind of success, Richard does it with the love he feels for the industry.
“My work is that it has forced me to learn. I learn by doing research, by traveling and just by interacting with the people I need to work with. I studied Architecture because of my love of History and geography. My job brings those things into focus daily. The entire design process requires you to draw inspiration from somewhere, I usually find it in history and cultures from varied geographic regions”.
To get to the place where Richard Mishaan stands today, he had to overcome many challenges throughout his career as an interior design, in the context of his design firm.
“There have been many challenging times in my career. They say that when things seems to look like the path has narrowed, the only way out is to go all the way through. It’s supposed to be funny but it makes sense. I think that my not measuring myself up to others and to keep my eye on the job has kept me focused on the important aspect of what needs to get done”.
By saying this, the designer establishes a focuses of looking ahead, and giving it your best, without comparing to others.
Recognized as AD 100, as well as Elle Décor A-List, the designer says that he has not yet “achieved everything I want in life, I am not even close to doing so. I am however grateful that I have been able to do as much work as I have. I have designed projects for Residential, Commercial (stores and restaurants) and hospitality clients (hotels). I have run a retail shop that was part shop part gallery that sold collectible furniture and objects”.
“What makes me filled professionally is when my clients look around their homes and tell me that they love everything about it. That they are pleased brings me joy. I also get the same feeling when I look in a magazine or on Pinterest and see others drawing inspiration from my work or having used my furniture or lighting in their work. I also love interacting with craftsmen and artisans. That really is fulfilling”.
He’s had many projects published in major magazines and newspapers, that transmits every stunning element. With that dedication, he aims “that the readers have loved the projects as much as I have. It’s funny to think about this as I don’t ever really look for feedback. If someone compliments me that’s great. I am loving social media in that I get to show my point of view on art, architecture, food, design and life style by photographing things and putting them online. Books are also another way to have gotten my message out there”. He aims to reach out to clients that “are avid collectors. They collect Art, furniture, homes and whatever they are drawn to. I have had a great time finding context and order to very eclectic collections”.
Right now, he’s working on a “particular Home in Palm Beach Florida that I am obsessing about. I love the location of the home which is on the beach. I like the clients and love the style of the project”. Besides that stunning interior, he’s “also working on Furniture for a line I design for Theodore Alexander as well as some lighting for Visual Comfort”.
As an actual and hottest trend, Richard Mishaan thinks that sustainability is the way to go, along with the establishment of a Zen environment. As far as the craftsmanship goes, the designer thinks that “many artisanal crafts emerging now. I love Stephen Cantonson’s plaster work. I like Peter Lane’s porcelain. I am Colombian and love the wicker and the baskets from different regions. I love textiles from all around the world”.
