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.
Meet Stacey Mayesh, the super-talented stylist who has worked with everyone from Cameron Diaz to Jessica Alba. She’s recently turned her focus toward private, non-famous clients — regular people who want to look amazing, but just don’t have the time to source unique pieces (or even think about planning outfits). “It’s so much fun,” Mayesh says. “It’s like playing dress-up every day!”
But, signature style doesn’t happen overnight. “It’s a process. I start by editing a client’s closet. Then I shop all over — uptown, downtown, large stores, small boutiques, and online,” she says. It might take a little while, but Mayesh says the investment is worth it in the end. “I try to make my clients a better version of themselves. Still them, but enhanced, pulled together, more exciting.”
What we at Viyet love is how Mayesh’s eye for fashion translates to decor. Her NYC loft is nothing short of stunning — and she handpicked almost every item herself! “My home is a funky, old converted warehouse loft. So many lofts in Tribeca are completely sleek and perfect-looking. I love how our loft retains many of the old, original elements. It’s very authentic in its imperfections, and they give it so much character. I'm similar in my personal style where I like to be put together, but not too polished!” Mayesh says.
We’re wondering if she’d ever consider using her styling skills for interiors — if so, we’d be first in line. Take a look through the slideshow to see her incredible space, plus her picks for a fashionable interior.
