Ryan Korban a twenty-something NY based interior designer, who’s clients include Jessica Stam, James Franco, Zoe Kravitz and his latest addition Alexander Wang’s new NY flagship boutique arrived from Philadelphia nine years ago with his mind set on joining the ranks of the fashion industry’s elite. Korban once said he was “drawn to all the ways the fashion world felt young, relevant and sexy,” He continued to say “Then I realized my love for it had nothing to do with the actual construction of clothing.”
Instead he started to fantasize about all the interiors he saw around him, he took a leap of faith and is now one of the most sought after interior designers! Korban is said to be one of the most meticulous self-made, untrained designers around.
His concept is simple. Your space should represent you, create your space how you would dress!
Mix texture, color and utilize your best feature. He shares his idea that our living space can be exact and polished, while still comfortable, realistic and livable. That’s the essence of his approach.
