Best Interior Design Projects: Get Inside Italian Vogue’s Editor Home – Franca Sozzani, the longtime editor of Italian Vogue, was always the picture of perfection. And today Best Design Projects decided to honour the amazing interiors of her house, since it represents a must-see interior design project and the perfection of the owner.
The Milan-based editrix, who passed away just before Christmas, adopted a similarly uniform look for her homes, which she bought and flipped like a savvy Las Vegas card dealer. In each residence—her former New York townhouse, the Milan apartment, a family getaway in Portofino—Sozzani’s take on interiors was rigorously reductive. Stern black and white lines created a spotless and fuss-free gallery-like aesthetic in all her domestic surroundings (except for a riad in Marrakech, decorated some 30 years ago in a slightly more unbuttoned bohemian style and kept that way).
The living room features an Alvar Aalto lounge chair, a mink-covered Sacco chair by Zanotta, and two vintage Marco Zanuso Sleep-O-Matic sofas placed back to back. An Andreas Gursky C-print hangs in the hallway. Styling by Ana Cardinale.
An Alvar Aalto chair sits in the entrance hall.
A portrait of Sozzani by Julian Schnabel overlooks a guest room. Vintage Venini glass vase.
In the master bedroom, 17th-century prints glow in gilded frames. Osvaldo Borsani desk; Medea chair by Vittorio Nobili.
In the studio, a photo by Peter Lindbergh hangs over a Tambour rolltop desk by George Nelson for Herman Miller.
A photograph from Shirin Neshat’s “Women of Allah” series hangs in the media room; the bookcase was designed by architect Massimiliano Locatelli, Sozzani’s longtime friend, who renovated the 19th-century townhouse.
The landing is lined with portraits of Patti Smith and the sconce by Serge Mouille.
Above, it is featuring works by Anselm Kiefer and other artists.
