I first learned of Ryan Korban when I stumbled across his home on The Selby. It was love at first site. I fell hard for the stacks of books, brass finishes, antiques rugs, and hints of metallic. A mix of everything seemingly unrelated but somehow working so harmoniously as one.
Thumbing through his portfolio, I've fallen even deeper in love with his confidence in mixing materials and finishes. His signature look of thin metals (seen in his choice of lamps, tables, bed frames, and chairs), fur throws, exotic skins, and topiary is perfectly restrained and unabashedly bold all at once.
And guess what. He's only twentyfive! A self-taught designer with an impeccable eye and exquisite taste make him one of New York's finest.
Perfectly layered textures, finishes, and furniture - to me this space summarizes all the reasons I love him and says it all.
