Social Style: Ryan Korban On InstagramAuthor:Candace Abbott
If “Life Envy” had a definition it would be Ryan Korban, the NYC-based designer mastermind who has a knack for mixing old-world inspiration with decadent luxuries and the appropriate dose of romance.
The young, thirty-something, whose foray into design started with the co-founding of the devilishly hip, Tribeca boutique, Edon Manor (below), has a brazen approach—one that has won him high-profile projects and clientele. He’s graced the spaces of cool kids like James Franco and Jessica Stam and been at the head of lusty fashion lofts for Alexander Wang and Balenciaga.
With no fear of opulence, this untrained gentleman has a discerning eye the ornate and for glamour, but maintains an admirable respect for spaces that are still totally livable. That’s why you ought to follow him on Instagram.
If furs and marble are your thing or you just can’t get enough of lush floral bouquets and Uptown flavor, then consider yourself Korban’s next biggest fan. With images centering around his NYC experience, Ryan’s feed is a pretty collection of long hallways, cascading stairways, chandeliers that don’t disappoint, ornate city architecture, and his thrilling designs. And here and there you’ll find snaps of his pup, Penny, the lady of the house and cutest pooch on a pouf.
