Architectural Digest knows who does it better, that’s why Victoria Hagan is in the 2017 AD 100 list of the best interiors designers. She’s the face of the new American Classic interiors: a modern sense of luxury that is sophisticated, restrained and iconic. She is known for using refined materials, exquisite neutral color palette, and strong silhouettes.
Hagan founded her firm 25 years ago and since then has designed several versatile interiors, from elegant urban homes to casual retreats, high-end residentials, and innovative corporate interiors.
The clean lines, neutral colors and restrained use of embellishments make her interiors more simple and comfortable at the same time. The high quality of the materials and stylish accessories are the main ingredients for stylish yet livable rooms. “I have always believed that design is about the unexpected. Design is about using your imagination to create special environments to live in and enjoy.”, said Hagan.
Not only Architectural Digest honored her work, also The New York Times already described her work as “the most cerebral, the one bound to be influential,” and she continues to be a major force in the design community.
Style: “Timeless American design.”
Projects: A Colorado ranch house, an oceanfront compound in Palm Beach.
Clients: Vice President Joe Biden, Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, Conan O’Brien.
Key Influences: Mies van der Rohe (“less turned out to be so much more”), Angelo Donghia.
Graduated from Parsons School of Design, Hagan recently endowed a scholarship for the newly formed MFA program in Interior Design. She is also a frequent guest speaker on design issues in United States and Rizzoli recently published her first book, Victoria Hagan: Interior Portraits. A second volume is scheduled for release at the end of this year.
