While architects like Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid are known throughout the world, interior designers rarely enjoy the same fame. However, when it comes to creating elegant homes, much of the legwork is the result of the hard work of these talented design professionals. Around the United States and throughout the world, some of the world’s most talented designers are showing off their remarkable skill for transforming homes. If you’re eager to know the next big thing in interior design, here are the designers to watch:
Jeffrey Beers: You might not know Jeffrey Beers by name, but you probably know his jaw-dropping interior design work. The New York-based designer, who has worked for everyone from Bloomingdale’s to Disney to the Four Seasons to Ralph Lauren, has sealed his place in history with the interiors at 277 Fifth Avenue, a Manhattan luxury building designed by Rafael Viñoly. The 55-story NoMad building’s interiors boast a mix of modern convenience and old-world style, offering sleek white and wood kitchens with marble counters and backsplashes, oversized windows, and luxe amenity spaces, including a private dining room, children’s playroom, and an entertaining suite.
Paris Forino: Portfolios don’t get much more glamorous than Paris Forino’s. In addition to numerous projects throughout New York City, the acclaimed interior designer has helmed the transformation of Missoni Baia, a waterfront luxury condo in Miami’s Edgewater district. Under Forino’s watchful eye, the building has been transformed into a tasteful, yet colorful haven for those who love Missoni’s trademark designs, with brightly-striped textiles, open kitchens, marble accents, and oversized windows offering water views throughout.
Alexandra Champalimaud: Interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud is the reason why the Upper East Side luxury homes at The Kent are among the city’s most elegant. With massive great rooms, sleek dark-wood-accented modern eat-in kitchens with integrated stainless steel Sub-Zero and Miele appliances and Dornbracht fittings, and massive Alexis Azul marble-accented master baths with double vanities, each space in this unique building is as refined as it is striking.
Daniel Romualdez: Among a select group of AD 100-honored designers, interior designer Daniel Romualdez has made a name for himself in New York with countless properties—including the stunning interiors at 70 Vestry. The Robert Stern Architects-designed downtown luxury building is awash in Romualdez’s soft glamour, from light wide-plank wood flooring to semi-enclosed kitchens with integrated Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, to Statuary Monarch marble-adorned baths offering glass-surround showers, double vanities, and elegant brushed nickel fixtures.
