The New Formal
Creating settings where great art can live in harmony with the history and style of the architecture of the interiors and provide a elegant and inviting living space for the collectors is the basis of Jim Aman’s design approach. His goal-and that of the artists-is to integrate the art into the interior so that it can inspire and delight the collectors and complement the way they live and give their life shape. Working collaboratively with the clients, Aman applies the same artistic principles of light, color, texture, and scale that characterize the world’s best art in the selection of fabrics, fixtures, and bespoke furnishings that surround and enhance the collections. Ten magnificent residences are included-landmark Park Avenue apartments and Upper East Side townhouses in New York as well as stunning properties in Greenwich, the Hamptons, and Palm Beach. Unlike many designers, Aman works exclusively with a small number of loyal clients whose trust he has gained over multiple projects. His portfolio offers an unprecendented glimpse into this rarified world.
