In its 18th year, the Architectural Digest Design Show draws approximately 40,000 design lovers to interact with the incredible design displays from more than 400 brands and, every year, the AD Design Show sets up its own apartment. With different designers taking on the challenge of designing an apartment that speaks to the show, it is always one of the most expected parts of the event.
The iconic AD Apartment is designed by Sasha Bikoff (one of AD’s new creatives), who reimagined the space in her signature whimsical world.
“I wanted to create a space that embodied an ‘uptown girl living in a downtown world’ spirit! It represents the dichotomy between a woman who loves antiques and appreciates the finer things yet is still edgy and modern.”
– Sasha Bikoff
Following last years’ apartment designed by New York Interior Design Firm, Drake/Anderson – Sasha Bikoff had a huge standard to live up to and many wondering eyes to impress.
Known for her balanced understanding of design, flawless execution, and technical knowhow sculpted from her vast worldly exploits and experiences. Bikoff’s style is heavily influenced by the multicultural flavors of her hometown, New York City, and from her experiences traveling abroad.
Bikoff’s colorful style and unlikely design pairings are the threads tying this apartment together. Her remarkable lineup of brands and products break design rules and inspire a lavish-yet-eclectic lifestyle.
“Decorating should reflect who we are; we should be surrounded by the things we love regardless of design rules,”
– Sasha Bikoff
Highlights include a host of cutting-edge appliances and accessories, as well as visionary décor and furniture meant to spark every sense. In the kitchen, find the latest hand-crafted, handle-less appliances from Gaggenau, state-of-the-art surfaces from Dekton by Cosentino, and Art Deco-inspired cabinetry by Danish design company Reform.
Throughout the apartment, you’ll see contemporary furnishings, brass-and-crystal hardware, nature-inspired wallcoverings, mattress, pillows, and bedding, chandeliers and pendants, hardwood flooring, custom cornice and bed canopy and original illustrations of the space.
Join Sasha Bikoff for an exclusive look inside this year’s AD apartment featuring the “Uptown Girl Living in a Downtown World”.
Sasha has exhibited her work in leading industry events, including DIFFA.
