KDHamptons Design Diary: Sasha Bikoff Shares Her Gorgeous Garden of Versailles Tabletop Decor
Stunning Sasha Bikoff (above) is one of my favorite young interior designers who is really pushing the envelop creating spaces and experiences that has everyone singing her praise. Following her design debut with an apartment in the famed Dakota building, Sasha was dubbed the “interior designer for the young & wealthy” by the New York Times and the “go-to decorator for Manhattan’s well-heeled millennial set” by the New York Post.
Bikoff’s aesthetic is 18th century French Rococo mixed with 1960s Space Age Modern, 1970s French Modernism and 1980s Italian Memphis Milano, which she executes with bright and colorful fabrics and rare antiques. It is a combination that highlights the best of the best from the coveted aesthetics of New York, the Hamptons, Miami, Palm Beach, and Palm Springs. As an antiques dealer on 1stdibs, Sasha sources antique and vintage items from around the world which she reimagines in couture fashion fabrics.
Sasha is also a Hamptonite and is currently reimagining an older house in the Springs section of East Hampton. Each year she participates in the HC&G Hampton Classic Grand Prix Table Top Design competition which yours truly is the guest judge each season. The inspiration for her incredible table this year was the garden of Versailles which we will share with you here. “I wanted to do something over the top that has never been done before,” says Sasha, “but also illustrate a new creative way for an equestrian themed table. Last year I played with this unicorn/pegasus themed table so this year I wanted to go the opposite route with a more traditional tablescape of European elegance.”
“The plates and glassware are vintage and French, I also included vintage hand forged bronze equestrian figurines all sourced on Ebay. The fabric is vintage and Italian and has a wonderful gold damask pattern and is silk. The hedges were laser cut to mimic the labyrinth mazes at Versailles.”
“We also incorporated gravel to further enhance the table. The center fountain was a plastic drinking fountain for punch purchased on amazon that my little cousin spray painted for me with a textured stone paint. The silverware is all christofle. We also included little topiaries and moss.”
