Top Interior Designer Ryan Korban has a very peculiar style for his designs.

“I design in a very abstract way. I usually ask people what their favorite scent is or what their favorite flower is. I’m more interested in what moves people’s senses than putting a bunch of samples on a board.”

Korban embarked on a career in interior design after graduating from The New School in New York. Without any formal training, he developed his unique aesthetic, characterized by a mix of luxury, old-world romance, and urban cool.

Drawing on inspirations ranging from Monet paintings to Helmut Newton photographs, he creates seductive, wondrous spaces that surpass trend to redefine traditional design for a new generation.

His portfolio includes the homes of prominent figures in the worlds of fashion, film, and music.

Madison Square Residence

This three bedroom apartment overlooks Madison Square Park and, while ultra luxurious, is home to a family who loves the ease of downtown living. With walls covered in suede and ebonized floors, this apartment is elegant yet subtle. An impeccable art collection adorns the walls with works from Basquiat, George Condo, Vik Muniz, and Alex Katz.

Union Square Project

Combining luxurious elements, vintage furnishings, and the aforementioned electric street-chic art collection, Korban crafted a sophisticated space that perfectly balances two contrasting aesthetics to create a wholly original home.

His work has been profiled in such publications as Vogue, W, Harper’s Bazaar, Architectural Digest, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times.
