It is impossible to walk in a room designed by Garrow Kedigian and not be blown away immediately by his clear enthusiasm and passion for what he does. Born in Montreal, Garrow attended the McGill School of Architecture and trained with renowned designer William Hodgins in Boston before moving to New York to start his own interior design firm. We are delighted to highlight him today as our next Designer Spotlight feature.
If Garrow’s work could be summed up in a single quote, it would be: ‘I never do white walls… I hate white.’ He lives up to this reputation with his use of bold colours and furniture that invite conversation and leave a lasting impression. He recently finished designing his dream home in Montreal, Chelsea Place, which was built in the Art Deco era in 1923, photographed above.
Garrow’s main residence in New York is a stunning Park Avenue apartment that used to belong to Fred Astaire, and he has brought it back to life with a focus on the classical architectural features. He worked with a series of specialists, including a painter who was able to identify 32 layers of paint over the years. Garrow has created a warm and welcoming home with a mix of antique and modern details.
Below we are sharing some of our favourite shots of Garrow’s interiors all across New York and the East Coast.
