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.”
