Episode 074: Miles Redd
Miles Redd: The Start of Something Great
Miles Redd embarked on his interior design with luminary antiques dealer John Rosselli and decorator Bunny Williams. In 1998 he opened his own design firm in New York City.
High-Style and The Big Book of Chic
He is known for his unique aesthetic vision which is characterized by a mélange of high and low, a strong sense of color, and a traditional approach with modern gestures. Redd finds inspiration in a wide array of venues. His trademark approach to design has brought to life rooms infused with boldness, wit, fantasy, and sophistication. In 2012, Redd published The Big Book of Chic. As reviewed by Vogue Living, “Captivated by chic from an early age, Redd has assembled a personal medley of images—a white-gloved hand poised to pluck a caviar toast, a 1940s princess in a froth of tulle and a Roman bust wearing a coolie hat — people, artists and places that inspire him. To those rich pickings, the decorator adds shots of his “party-ready” interiors and quotes of a life less ordinary.”
His Work is Featured and New Products are Due
Miles served as the creative director of Oscar de la Renta Home from 2003 to 2013. His work has been featured in Vogue, W, House Beautiful, Elle Décor, Veranda, and Architectural Digest. Miles was most recently honored as one of Architectural Digest’s “AD 100” where he has been since 2012. In 2015, Miles launched a line of fabrics and wallcoverings with Schumacher.
