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. And today, My Design Week is going to show you everything!
The iconic AD Apartment is designed by Sasha Bikoff (one of AD’s new creatives), who reimagined the space in her signature whimsical world.
Bikoff grew up on Manhattan’s East 87th Street and now lives downtown in Greenwich Village. It’s a construct that serves a design purpose: It lends a certain logic to mixing furniture and decor from a pretty disparate list of manufacturers.
For the AD Apartment, that mix started with the kitchen, which she clad in cabinets by ADDS exhibitor Reform, a Danish company that makes stylish fronts for basic cabinetry. The living and bedrooms got a hit of old-world glamour with chandeliers from Livex, who provided hanging lighting for the whole place.
Among her own contributions are two French tufted chairs in a floral fabric for the living room, a 1980s Memphis desk in front of the bed, two Lucite Charles Hollis Jones chairs redone in Pucci silk, vintage boudoir lamps, and a gilt Italian mirror from the 1950s.
For the floors, she brought in the white-and-gold rug from her recent Disco Dots collection and an antique Chinese rug that she dyed in groovy turquoise, red, pink, and purple. For the finishing touch, Bikoff worked with Supreme Furniture Services to devise a dreamy canopy bed that, just like Murphy’s, is draped in billowing sheer fabric.
