The best of Victoria Hagan InteriorsMonday 20 April 2015
Victoria Hagan’s rooms are the environmental equivalent of Katharine Hepburn—crisply enunciated, straightforwardly eloquent, strong yet restrained, and charged with a robust optimism that is unmistakably American.
Since founding her Manhattan firm in 1991, Hagan has attracted a loyal following of business leaders such as Revlon’s Ronald Perelman and Walt Disney chairman Bob Iger, for whom she has done several projects in New York and Los Angeles.
The Manhattan designer’s approach, honed since she first went into business nearly three decades ago, works as beautifully applied to a 1915 neo-Federal mansion in New York City as it does to a newly built Shingle Style house in the Hamptons. The elements? Think expressive antiques, full-bodied natural materials, soothing color schemes, and carefully integrated moments of whimsy—aerodynamic wing chairs are a favorite—to invigorate the proceedings.
Crisply elegant and cheerfully modern, Victoria Hagan’s interior design projects are characterized by a strong sense of proportion and adroit combinations of materials and textures set against a warm neutral palette.
Current commissions include expansive glass-and-wood beach retreats on both coasts, a Virginia country manor, and a Colorado ranch. Stylish pieces from her eponymous furniture collection are frequently deployed in her clients’ homes. “My work is all about comfort, function, and scale,” Hagan says. “Getting those elements right is critical.”
