Editors' Take

The AD100 studio of Miles Redd and David Kaihoi combines the duo’s wealth of experience and talent in decorating, antiques, art, and installations to produce highly embellished, distinctly layered spaces that are as joyful as they are visually complex.


Redd Kaihoi, a New York City-based interior design firm, combines the richly-hued world of Miles Redd and the graphic vision of David Kaihoi. Redd and Kaihoi have found their two points of view beneficially complementary, with each slant refining and expanding the other’s work. Redd Kaihoi will often look to the past as a way of looking forward; edifying and extracting the best of design and art from every decade, often taking things seemingly out of fashion, and recontextualizing in a modern spin. Their design ethos is simple: It must be desired.

This perspective has given them the opportunity to contribute to a wide range of projects, from a mid-century Beverly Hills masterpiece to a layered Palm Beach fantasy. Redd and Kaihoi strive for intelligent choices, excellent service, and unique, rarefied design. They listen carefully to the needs of their patron but are not yes-men and will speak up if they feel a mistake is being made. Above all, they trust their gut sense of design and use that as a guiding light to make the best choices both economically and stylistically. The Redd Kaihoi design process includes lots of communication, comparisons, contrasts, transparency, humor, and laughter along the way. Redd and Kaihoi understand that what they do is a great privilege and have a deep respect for their clients, and often friends, who care greatly about the dying art form of living in beautifully considered homes. This trust is everything to them, and they do everything possible to honor this bond.
