S&J Spotlight on Design: Dmitry Velikovsky
Sophia & Joseph draw back the curtain on Russian interior design by delving into one of the most sought after and innovative Russian interior design talents: Dmitry Velikovsky.
Meet the design force behind some of Moscow’s most opulent design projects, where billionaires are threefold, and extravagance is the norm. Velikovsky is working with his team at Artistic Design Ltd. to move Russian interior design away from the ostentatious Tsar-like décor that typically characterises large, grandiose properties in the capital’s most exclusive neighbourhoods. Instead, Velikovsky’s signature style incorporates a mix of contemporary and traditional pieces and styles from across the world to create a refined fusion of East meets West. Take inspiration from the designer and architect’s own 2, 200ft personal duplex within one of Moscow’s most trendy neighbourhoods, Patriarch’s Ponds.
Sophia & Joseph love the splashes of colour that Velikovsky incorporates in each room to create an eclectic and personable ambience. Velikovsky himself graduated from the Moscow Architectural Institute and founded Artistic Design in 1995. Since then his company has specialised and gained international recognition for consistently innovative projects working with penthouses, houses, chalets, boutique hotels, offices, restaurants and airplanes across the world.
What makes this apartment so special is the use of statement antiques and figurines that Velikovsky says ‘seduced him’ from his travels.
The herringbone pattern wood flooring throughout the apartment creates space and allows the rooms to flow perfectly. Velikovsky’s eclectic choice of rugs and soft furnishings produces a warm comfortable atmosphere, especially the bedroom.
Recreate a touch of Velikovsky style within your own home using accent cushions – we think Sophia & Joseph’s Linen Cascade cushion or silk Cassatt is the perfect finishing touch to this contemporary, classic living room.
Sophia & Joseph create unique collections of exquisite luxury fabrics, soft furnishings and cushions printed on rich velvets, natural linens and sumptuous silks that will inject colour, impact and style to your project.
We also offer bespoke design & colour matching service for interior designers, architects and corporate clients.
