8 Products Designer Nina Magon Relies on for Luxurious Interiors
As principal of her namesake firm, Nina Magon has spent 14 years mastering materials that make commercial interiors feel luxurious. To ensure her vision of rich textures and seductive curves is universally read as lush, she draws on her extensive travels as a Canadian child born to Indian expats: “The country that inspired me most was India. Silks, chiffons, beadwork, metalwork. I understood that if India had so much to offer, I could learn more from exploring the cultures of other countries,” she says.
Contour ceiling fixture
“The lines nod to the past, but with a twist.”
Forza dining table
“To keep the curvilinear theme throughout, we created this dining table (part of my own Pavus Collection) that features the juxtaposition of a smoked glass top on a Corian base.”
“The striking sheen is the perfect contrast to matte finishes in a space.”
Flue side table
“Carved from a solid stone block, the table’s form straddles the line between sculpture and function. It’s a perfect conversation starter.”
Dekton Liquid Embers stone
“I’ve placed this bold-patterned stone inside archways to accent a monochromatic color scheme and give the interior a moody edge.”
Green Plaster cladding
“This peacock-colored custom plaster finish is something we’ve created with a fabricator to add a multidimensional facade to some furnishings such as bar fronts.”
“Comfort and sophistication were the goal when designing these barstools for the space. With a curved ridged back upholstered in this deep green and accented with a brushed bronze base, these barstools were the perfect fit.”
“This sofa’s curves and contours—accentuated by a brushed bronze base—make it the perfect timeless addition to a luxurious lounge.”
