Design Profile: Kirill Istomin Interior Design & Decoration

Mesmerizing, breathtaking, and enchanting... That is how I would describe the exquisite portfolio of designer Kirill Istomin, and today I am thrilled to share a few highlights of his work. After earning a fine arts degree in interior design and decoration from Parsons School of Design, Kirill began his career with the legendary interior design firm Parish-Hadley in New York, where he collaborated with the patriarch of American design, Albert Hadley.  In 2002, he founded Kirill Istomin Interior Design & Decoration, based in Moscow. The company manages projects in France, Italy, Russia, Kazakhstan, the United States, and Great Britain.

“He’s no doubt the most important Russian decorator,” Aleksey Dorozhkin, editor in chief of Elle Decoration Russia, said in an interview with 1stdibs. “His interiors are a refined mix of historical quotes, bold designs, outstanding craftsmanship and made-to-measure objects.”

Recently featured in American Elle D├ęcor, Istomin reimagined an 18th-century pavilion in the park town of Tsarskoe Selo, near St. Petersburg, as a luxe weekend retreat. The sofa and armchair are custom while the iron shell chairs are from the 1950s. (via 1stdibs)

In a large European villa, Istomin created an exotic Chinoiserie dressing room with plaster palm columns inspired by the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, England. The gilt-metal side table and floor lamp, both from the 1940s, were found in London. (via 1stdibs)

Kirill reinterpreted Tony Duquette‘s aesthetic by coordinating a marine-themed chandelier with an elaborate cornice. The 1950s sconces on the mirrored wall are Italian; the vintage cachepot on the table is from Paris. (via 1stdibs)

Nancy Lancaster inspired the silk citron-colored dressmaker curtains with bishop-sleeve jabots in this master bedroom. Both sides of the room are anchored by mirrored fireplace mantels that riff on a Serge Roche console. The 19th-century bedside table lamps are French. (via 1stdibs)
