The young ideological designer-inspirer and art director of his self-named brand, VADIM MALTSEV DESIGN & DECOR | FURNITURE, has been creating exceptional design since he began in 2010. After graduating from Parsons School of Design in New York, Vadim established his firm. He quickly attracted the attention of the Italian bureau Ciarmoli Queda Studio with whom he collaborated on numerous projects as he rapidly grew his international practice. A creator of interiors and furnishings, Vadim’s designs blend contemporary and classical styles bursting with personality and boldness.

Russian Renaissance

With the completion of the Russian Renaissance project, Vadim and his team created a truly unique and inspiring space. A modern interior which beautifully honors Russian history.

Inspiration was drawn from books and films about Russia, its folk traditions and customs. A remarkable series of Fabergé masterpieces created for the Russian imperial family and private buyers between 1885 and 1917 also served as a point of inspiration for the project.

In the apartment’s dining room, a stunning organic inspired chandelier by the New York-based brand Pelle serves as a dazzling focal point. The delicate gold geometric fixture strewn with white blossoms hangs above one of Vadim’s own designs. A classic marble, wood and brass oval dining table named RENAISSANCE. Lastly, a warm and inviting touch of red enters the space with four Nahema dining chairs by KOKET. Their slender black legs and brass details perfectly complimenting the table.

The Kitchen

Faith and religion played an integral part of culture in Ancient Russia. Thus Vadim incorporates this history in the space through an iconic element of the Byzantine church – the arched vault. In the kitchen, the arched vault ceiling beautifully expresses this Russian Orthodox aesthetic.

The Hall

Grand modern doors by the Italian brand Rimadesio, eloquently represent the way in which the space transitions from historical to modern.

In the hall, sconces by the Italian studio Apparatus hang above Vadim Maltsev’s BYZANTIUM console. A striking design that also recalls the iconic arched vault.
