Whether outﬁtting a sprawling new home on the Utah slopes or a two-bedroom prewar apartment in the heart of the Big Apple, Andrew Flesher’s goal is to approach design from the outside in—ﬁrst ensuring that a space works well, then imbuing it with livable luxury and a timeless aesthetic.
Though he’s well versed in a variety of styles, Flesher’s hallmark is his ability to mix modern and classic elements. He seamlessly blends new pieces with vintage ﬁnds, and chooses both accessories and color with purpose and restraint, rather than gratuitously. Instead of chasing ﬂeeting trends, Flesher focuses on top-grade materials, unique details and long-lasting quality. And he backs up the style with substance, working closely with architects to make sure that a space has the best “bones” possible, before adding a single decorative element. Clients trust their homes entirely in his hands, because he conﬁdently coordinates every aspect of the design process, from demolition to doorknobs.
Previously co-head of the ﬁrm Gunkelman Flesher in Minneapolis, Flesher now has ofﬁces in both New York and Minneapolis, working on full-service, custom residential, commercial and hospitality projects worldwide. He designed a room in the 2009 Kips Bay Designer Showhouse; his work has been featured in House Beautiful, Metropolitan Home, House and Garden and more; and he has been quoted as a home expert in O at Home, InStyle and The New York Times.
