A clean, minimal approach to design doesn’t have to result in austerity.

Take for instance this modern, sprawling apartment Kara Mann created for a couple,

Kitzia and Richard Goodman. Situated in a prestigious Chicago building in the Gold Coast historic district,

the primary residence melds stark lines with textural richness from the marble, velvet, and even églomisé that Mann employed throughout the rooms.

The Goodmans were moving from a town home in the Lincoln Park area and as art patrons,

they were keen on a gallery-like space with plenty of openness for entertaining.

Mann,  whose eponymous firm is based in Chicago and has offices in New York and Los Angeles, obliged, handling both the architecture of the gutted apartment and its decor.

“Kitzia came to me with inspiration from Tom Ford,”

says Mann, who has also worked previously as a fashion stylist and therefore gravitated to her client’s Tom Ford cue.

Mann says she referenced not only Ford’s clothing, but also his dramatic William Sofield-designed bouti ques.

“I always look to fashion when I’m thinking of design.

It moves quicker than our industry and it forces me to think outside the box of interiors.” รับออกแบบบ้าน
