Issac Mizrahi’s Apartment in Architectural Digest

Isaac Mizrahi and Arnold Germer

Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi recently took Architectural Digest on a tour of his Greenwich Village home.

Mizrahi told the magazine that his mother once told him, “if you want to stay young, live in the Village!”

His apartment holds more than 4, 000 square feet in a building located off of Sixth Ave that was built in 1931. Mizrahi made the apartment himself by combining three separate units – a studio, a one bedroom and a two bedroom — over the last twenty years. David Bers Architecture handled the redesign of the combined apartments.

The 52 year old fashion designer explained why his home has a subdued flavor as opposed to the flashy style that most people expect of him. “I work with color and pattern all day long, but there’s a reserve to my personal taste. To me the essence of style, at least in terms of the apartment, is a gradual refining process. On the other hand I tell people all the time, ‘Buy what you like, trust your instinct, your impulse!’”

The furnishings include an antique French armchair upholstered in a linen from his collection for S. Harris, a 19th century pedestal table from O’Sullivan Antiques, two Ole Wanscher armchairs from Karl Kemp Antiques, and a rug by Fort Street Studio.

His kitchen features cabinetry by Bers, stools by Makr and a set of 18th century Swedish chairs from Laurin Copen Antiques. The master bedroom has a bright Benjamin Butler painting, a 19th-century French work displayed over the bed, and nightstands designed by David Bers. Its drapes are of a Mizrahi design.

The bathroom is coated in marble paneling, including around a Khohler tub. It also has an uncovered old style free standing radiator.

The den has a painting by Tomory Dodge.

Mizrahi shares the home with his partner Arnold Germer.
