Kim Kardashian Talks About Chicago, Her App, and Her New Love For Home Decor
Kim Kardashian recently spoke to Architectural Digest about one of the industries she has taken over: tech. The app mogul launched ScreenShop a couple of months ago, giving users the ability to screenshot clothing items and shop similar products. According to Kim, the app currently has about one million users, who have all gained the ability to shop something other than clothing: furniture. The technology behind the app has recently been updated to include homeware so you can get the perfect home of your dreams.
Kim spoke of her newfound love for home decor saying, "I feel like I’ve learned so much about architecture, about design, about furniture in the last, like, two years, and it’s like my passion right now. I love to look on 1stdibs for furniture. I pulled up this picture of this Aspen house that was so beautiful and all light wood and light colors, which is kind of like what my current house is like. I pulled up this Royère couch and the two polar bear chairs and some wood chairs and a little Royère stool. There’s this amazing [Pierre] Jeanneret sofa and this Le Corbusier lamp that I have, so, even for fun, I take pieces of mine and I’ll screenshot it to see what else is out there that’s similar. Especially other things that might be more affordable to other people."
She also spoke about what new West-Kardashian addition, Chicago's, nursery looks like. "I'm pretty much using the same crib and everything that I had for our other kids. We have a Vetro Lucite crib and we have a Royère bed in there and a really fluffy cream rug. I have a glider with an ottoman for feeding. With the first baby, I had a rocking chair, and I just love a glider so much more—you can move easier. Everything in the house is light colors and woods and soft and natural colors."
Kim also spoke about potentially heading into the furniture industry and claims she doesn't see herself as a designer. Kanye on the other hand, could easily slip into the role. "My husband makes all of his own furniture in his office. My office is all Vincent Van Duysen, but Kanye is so good at it, he loves to draw out pieces. Axel made a couch in our house called the "Kanye couch" because Kanye designed it with him."
