Don’t let his young age fool you, Ryan Korban is as accomplished as he is talented. After graduating from The New School in New York, Korban embarked on an interior design career. And while he doesn’t have any formal training under his belt, by his early 30s he boasts an impressive clientele of elite designers and celebrities, including Alexander Wang, Debra Messing, and Kanye West.

When you see his keen eye for design, it becomes clear why it’s so coveted. His aesthetic mixes elements of high-end luxury, old-world romance, and urban cool to create polished, uncluttered interiors rich in dynamic layers and visual intrigue. His design footprint also typically entails statement-making elements, like a perfectly placed Basquiat or suede walls, adding unique personality and dimension to his designs.

It’s tough to convey in words just how unique and powerful Korban’s interiors are, so we picked a few of our favorite spaces so you can behold his rare talent for yourself.
