Let There Be Neon! Kim Alexandriuk Channels the ’80sin her Window at Downtown
Kim Alexandriuk designed her #LEGENDS2013 window at Downtown as an homage to bold beauties of the 80s. “My window challenges the neon-naysayers, and poses the question: who wouldn’t want to be immortalized as a muse of Patrick Nagel or Robert Palmer? To be forever young and addicted to love.”
Drawing on a number of influences, including her European heritage, reverence for architecture, and passion for travel, the Santa Monica-based Kim Alexandriuk introduces modern elements into classic settings for rooms that express warmth, sophistication, and a sense of timelessness. Her foray into carpet design employs those same principles which can be seen in her “Modern Primitive” Collection for Doris Leslie Blau. When not designing, Alexandriuk enjoys long walks on the beach and overused clichés.
Downtown carries pieces from the 20th century and earlier and offers historical knowledge with high energy and imagination. Downtown’s efforts are focused on outstanding Italian, French and American pieces from Interior Designers and Architects. Their Classics Collection features lighting, mirrors and furniture inspired by classic design. This collection has evolved from the many unique antique and vintage pieces Downtown has collected throughout the years.
