“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”. Through that massive and continuous learning he became one of the top interior designers.
To get to the place whereRichard 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. I first showed the work of designers such as Herve Vander Strateen, Olivier Gagnere, Eric Schmidt, Christophe Delcourt, Thomas Boog to name a few. I had shows by Archimide Seguso, Tony Duquette and Hutton Wilkinson, photography by Francesco Scavullo, Roxanne Lowitt and more. I design Lighting, furniture, textiles and accessories. I have had a far-reaching career. What dreams are still in the cloud? There are too many to mention”. Although he has been developing many exciting projects, he has yet to fullfill many dreams, that he’ll easily succeed.
His design firm has featured the most innovative and stunning residential, hotel and retail projects.“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”. In order to feel professionally fullfilled, he loves the feeling of the positive feedback of his clients when they admire the amazing projects that are created.
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”.
It’s possible to see that the interior designer is focused on preserving the artisanal and craftsmanship method into this industry, as well to produce eco-friendly products and projects. Richard Mishaan has the interest of interior design at heart, and that is the best thing to ask for an experienced interior designer.
