CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Interior designer Richard Mishaan believes that all good furniture and art can
be combined successfully regardless of style, period, or price. Drawing on his
international background and love of travel, he combs the world to find
exquisite, unique pieces for his clients. Mishaan skillfully brings together
furnishings and objects from myriad periods—Italian neoclassic,
seventeenth-century French, African tribal, Art Deco, Biedermeier—in a
contemporary fusion style that has become his signature.
Mishaan approaches his projects with the knowing eye of a curator, integrating
art and objects into the flow of everyday life. A proponent of introducing an
element of luxury into all spaces, even the most utilitarian, the designer
shares his inspiring ideas for how to infuse every room—from well-appointed
formal dining and reception spaces to private spheres for relaxation and
work—with personality and generosity of spirit.
This lavish color presentation showcases dozens of completed projects, from
elegant townhouses to pied-à-terre apartments, spacious second homes, and
corporate offices. Mishaan's extensive knowledge of the fine arts,
architecture, and modern and historic furnishings is revealed in engaging
commentary that details his creative process, discloses his most valuable tips,
and explains how his experiences have informed the creation of his own custom
furniture and retail line. A directory of the designer's favorite sources from
around the country and around the globe encourages those interested in creating
eclectic and sophisticated interiors of their own to begin.
