Fine furniture company EJ Victor and Ryan Korban, renowned New York-based interior designer will collaborate on a new line of home furnishings to debut at the Spring High Point Market in the EJ Victor showroom at 116 S. Lindsay St.
The 40-piece collection consists of versatile lifestyle pieces that range from seating and table to beds and lighting.
Merging masculine and feminine identities with craftsmanship and attention to detail, the collection embodies Korban’s love of romance and brutalism. The collection references classic shapes from various decades re-imagined for the modern-day consumer, while ensuring these pieces can easily sit with different aesthetics ranging from vintage and eclectic to rich and modern. The collection provides elevated yet easy-to-mix pieces for both residential and commercial consumers.
“I wanted to create a collection that represented some of my favorite custom pieces I’ve designed in the last ten years. I’ve taken inspiration from old-world European details and updated them with a modern point-of-view so that the consumer has the ability to reinterpret the collection in their own way,” said Korban.
Having worked with some of the most celebrated fashion houses in the world such as Balenciaga, Alexander Wang, Brandon Maxwell, and Joseph Altuzarra, Korban recreated some of his favorite custom pieces he designed for each of them for this collection. The debut also includes an exclusive Ryan Korban x Dedar Milano custom fabrics collaboration, a limited edition of curated Dedar Milano fabrics available with all upholstery pieces.
“As a gifted young designer, Ryan has quickly established his reputation with discerning clientele. Ryan was recognized by Architectural Digest as the youngest member of their revered list of the top one hundred designers in the United States. EJ Victor is excited and honored to present his eclectic new collection of home fashion at the upcoming April High Point Market,” said EJ Victor Chief Executive Officer John V. Jokinen.
