Richard Mishaan Curates a Room Inspired by Jonas Wood
Collectors turn to designer Richard Mishaan for his signature ability to harmonize blue-chip art and fantastical mixes of eclectic design pieces. But the best testaments to his unwavering eye just might be his own art-filled homes, where punchy patterns serve as the perfect backdrop for his enviable collection.
“I love the colors of this Jonas Wood—the blues and greens,” says Mishaan. “I’m crazy about how his work transports you with its depiction of how we relate to nature now. This painting, which was recently included in Christie’s postwar and contemporary art evening sale, transforms a room by bringing the outside in—suddenly, whether you’re in the country or the city, there’s this feeling you’re in an indoor-outdoor room.”
