Design
Where form meets function

Recently accused of racism and cultural appropriation for her “Bo Derek braids,” Kim Kardashian is no stranger to the spotlight, as she now delves in to her business-minded endeavors with Architectural Digest in a new interview.

Speaking on her latest app, ScreenShop — which scans photos and curates links to similar products such as clothing and home furnishings — AD caught up with Kim Kardashian West on her furniture business, as well as baby Chicago’s nursery decor, and more.

…on the images she uses that inspires her style, including home decor.

KKW: “I’m obsessed with decor these days. I feel like I’ve learned so much about architecture, about design, about furniture in the last, like, two years, and it’s like my passion right now. I love to look on 1stdibs for furniture. I pulled up this picture of this Aspen house that was so beautiful and all light wood and light colors, which is kind of like what my current house is like. I pulled up this Royère couch and the two polar bear chairs and some wood chairs and a little Royère stool. There’s this amazing [Pierre] Jeanneret sofa and this Le Corbusier lamp that I have, so, even for fun, I take pieces of mine and I’ll screenshot it to see what else is out there that’s similar. Especially other things that might be more affordable to other people.”

…on new daughter, Chicago West and what her nursery looks like.

KKW: “I’m pretty much using the same crib and everything that I had for our other kids. We have a Vetro Lucite crib and we have a Royère bed in there and a really fluffy cream rug. We had a changing table made. I have a glider with an ottoman for feeding. With the first baby, I had a rocking chair, and I just love a glider so much more—you can move easier. Everything in the house is light colors and woods and soft and natural colors.”

…on possibly designing any home decor items, and revealing Kanye designs his own furniture.

KKW: “I would love to. I love ScreenShop because I remember with my first apartment, or when we were in college, when you’re trying to find some cool furniture and you just don’t know where to go or what to do. It’s so cool that you can screenshot something and figure out where to get it and have so many options. I think it’s going to be really helpful for so many people. My husband makes all of his own furniture in his office. My office is all Vincent Van Duysen, but Kanye is so good at it, he loves to draw out pieces. Axel made a couch in our house called the “Kanye couch” because Kanye designed it with him. I don’t know if I would personally do it, though I would love to. It’s not in the cards.”
