Richard Mishaan studied architecture at Columbia University and apprenticed with Philip Johnson, but a stagnant construction market induced him to flee to Seventh Avenue, where he landed a job designing classic men's and women's sportswear. After a successful decade in fashion, he returned to Columbia for a master's degree in finance and real-estate development. In 1993, he opened his office/showroom in a tiny but tailored Fifth Avenue aerie with soaring views.
Richard Mishaan Design is now a world leader in Interior Design. The firm has been creating timeless and artistic interiors for 25 years for Residential, Hospitality and Commercial clients. It has consistently been selected to be on the AD 100 as well as Elle Décor A List.
Richard Mishaan reopened HOMER in 2013, the New York City retail store which he had since closed in 2008. HOMER features a revolving collection of furniture, decorative accessories and art at a variety of price points.
Additionally, Mishaan has penned two books, “Modern Luxury” and “Artfully Modern” for The Monacelli Press.
