Christian Siriano Announces Launch of Interior Design Firm
Last week, fashion designer Christian Siriano introduced Siriano Interiors to the world. In an Instagram post that received comments from such stars as Selma Blair and model Martha Hunt, the winner of season four of Project Runway shared a photo of himself standing in a midtown Manhattan townhouse designed by the new firm. The room is highly textural, with a neutral but rich color palette, and a large piece of art by Ewa Budka. The style is not unlike that of Siriano’s own home in Connecticut, which AD visited in August.
In that residence, Siriano used his own collection of vintage finds (including, but not limited to, teak Danish midcentury chairs, a Pierre Paulin–inspired sofa, and vintage Mario Bellini for Cassina chairs) to create a relaxing retreat. “I’m a pretty heavy weekend antiquer,” he previously told AD.
So far, the Siriano Interiors website reveals that, in addition to the townhouse and Siriano’s Connecticut place, the firm has dabbled in commercial projects such as the designer’s own New York boutique, The Curated, as well as the soon-to-open London Hotel in West Hollywood. It appears the firm is also tiptoeing into the shopping realm: Right now, five sets of pillows, a settee, and a chair—all designed by Siriano—are available for purchase on the site. He has one of the settees, made of bouclé and wood with a geometric silhouette, in his own home office, and received his first commission for one after posting it on Instagram. “I like that they look like little dresses or people,” he told AD of his furniture pieces.
Since winning Project Runway and launching his namesake fashion line, Siriano has made a mark for himself as a size-inclusive designer and a celebrity favorite for red-carpet looks. In 2019, he returned to the show that made him famous, but this time as the host, alongside model Karlie Kloss.
