Home Tour: A Design Assistant's Technicolor New York Pad

Interior designer Sasha Bikoff's assistant is also her latest client.

The latest from Sasha Bikoff, rising designer and sophomore to Domaine, is a high-rise apartment sure to bring a smile to any jaded New Yorker's face. Bikoff's 23-year-old head of social media resides here; a girl who loves street art, tennis, technology, music, and pop culture. Her passions translated into a design brimming with bold primary colors and vintage chrome space-age finds.

Colorful Past

Because the apartment is a rental, no heavy lifting or construction could be done. But Sasha filled the space with pedigreed design pieces that her client could keep for a lifetime. There is a playful young vibe that is quintessentially pop, but also a sophisticated one, as many pieces represent a moment in the history of design. The Bertoia rainbow chairs, for example, are fun and young (perfect for a 23-year-old in the city), but they also have a respected history. The vintage Edward Fields rainbow rug, and Raymond Loewy credenza are the most coveted pieces in the apartment, according to Bikoff.

 

Prideful Collection

The owner also collects the art of young, up-and-coming artists/friends. Her pal, London-based artist PINS, is responsible for the three dimensional Mouthy Kicks piece in the breakfast nook. These statement pieces make the otherwise simple "white box" apartment have energy and character. I can even call my own prints a part of her collection!

 

Quick Change

Bikoff covered an existing mirrored wall with shelving from Ikea, and filled them with objets d'art and design books. From an elementary Rubix cube to Salinger's classics, the client's taste is the epitome of cool. What's next for the apartment? Hanging 30 artist-edition skateboard decks on the wall above her sofa. Perhaps it's time for a reshoot.
