Meet Viyet, the design aficionado’s go-to destination for buying & selling consignment furniture. Luckily, they know a thing or two about doing up your digs on a dime, so interior pros and design-philes alike turn to them for showroom-worthy inventory. Now, two years after launching the designer-curated start-up, they're bringing their interior know-how to R29.
It’s safe to say that ELLE style correspondent and founder of The Style Scout, Alia Ahmed-Yahia, knows a thing or two about style. After all, it’s her job. But, her talent for identifying a trend before it catches on also translates to interiors. We’d be jealous of her if it weren’t for our intense love for her fabulous New York City apartment, which she shares with her boyfriend, Peter, a photographer and sailing enthusiast.
Located in the Financial District, her light-filled home overlooks the incredible Art Deco buildings that populate the neighborhood, and the East River. The dramatic views are the focal point of the apartment, but the interior is just as dramatic, featuring the perfect fusion of masculine and feminine sensibilities.
