Product Details


“The refreshing voice of designer Richard Mishaan echoes throughout his monograph, Artfully Modern. In addition to residential work, including his own homes in Manhattan and Cartagena, Colombia, the book includes his hotel commission for the presidential suite at the St. Regis in New York, all with special emphasis on the artwork that defines these spaces.”
Architectural Digest

“An Alexander Calder next to a 16th-century mirror? A set of Damien Hirst kaleidoscope prints above a 1930s commode? All in a day’s work for Richard Mishaan, the Colombian-born designer known for exuberant interiors that mix eras and objects with elegance and impunity. Throughout the book are many showstopping moments, from a powder room covered in startling Fornasetti wallpaper to the 500-year-old ceiling of the designer’s second home in Cartagena, Colombia. This is design as high-wire act.” 

“In a city that the world’s One Percent has turned into its real estate playground, there’s a lot of temptation for top decorators to operate on autopilot. For many clients, a random assortment of the most expensive design options would be perfectly fine. That’s why the approach of interiors guru Richard Mishaan, on display in his just-released second book, Artfully Modern, looks and feels a little different. To be sure, the book is thoroughly high-end, but Mishaan has a more populist take than you might guess.”
New York Post

“The book is divided into four chapters, each expressing Mishaan’s various points of view on design. Minimalism is not for Mishaan. Beige is barely in his vocabulary. And monochrome doesn’t enter his mind. Think bracing colors, a vast and varied array of objects and art and an unapologetic sense of fun.”
