DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: INDIA MAHDAVI
India Mahdavi has taken the design world by storm, with her signature colorful and imaginative designs. My absolute favorite design is the Paris-based designer’s transformation of The Gallery at Sketch in London. It’s rich and calls on the Art Deco period in a very elegant, modern way.
Sketch is a literal Instagram heaven. Just looking at it can satiate your sweet tooth. It’s so on trend right now with everything in a hue of light, powdery pink.
The Gallery showcases Mahdavi’s Charlotte chair, which was designed specifically for Sketch. and brings all the whimsical feelings- like you’re eating dessert in a cake. No, seriously. Her signature Charlotte chair was inspired by the Charlotte cake dessert, and draped in rich, velvety plush fabric.
I think India Mahdavi is a designer you need to know because she makes wildly bold and courageous design choices, and makes the world a more magical place.
"It’s the best way to bring sunshine into a space. Sunshine is happiness, and my work is about happiness.” Mahdavi told AD.
P.S. One of Mahdavi’s latest projects is now open- Ladurée on Beverly Drive in Los Angeles.
