Pierre Durand

House
Pierre Durand, a financier and director of Adair Capital, also “moonlights” as owner of The Chinese Porcelain Company, a gallery on Park Avenue. His 5th Avenue home was one of the most exquisite we have visited and the pictures, we hope, are an absolute treat for NYSD readers. He himself is, and we don’t want to […]... READ MORE

Jonathan Burden

House
We really hope that this little interview will stand as a some kind of testament to the power of fashion cycles in the world of design because our discussion with British furniture restorer and antiques dealer, Jonathan Burden might some day be used as proof that the early 2000s was ‘the’ time to buy English furniture. Mid-century [&h... READ MORE

Sue Hostetler

House
Sue Hostetler is the editor-in-chief of Art Basel Miami Beach Magazine and has written a number of books but she did have the guts to admit that the verbiage in ‘Art Forum’ is too hard to wade through even if she is in the business. Her books include titles such as ‘Hip Hollywood Homes’ and ‘Majestic […]... READ MORE

Brett Beldock

House
Having interviewed so many designers by now, we could probably write a scholarly paper on designers with dyslexia because so many people we interview suffered through school with their intensely visual rather than verbal minds and Brett Beldock is one of them. We happened to be talking about schools and learning issues on the way in to […]... READ MORE

Vicente Wolf

House
We were shown in to Vicente Wolf’s loft apartment in the Garment District by his housekeeper and then encouraged to wander … we just turned to each other and said ‘I could move in immediately!’ How easy this interview was going to be with someone whose design sensibility resonated with our own taste! So it […]... READ MORE

Thomas Cary

House
We confess that we got a bit giggly in this apartment … a sense of the absurd quickly took over as we sidled in and then realized that the tiny, crammed spaces just couldn’t accommodate us with our handbags: we had to leave them outside the front door. Actually, it couldn’t really accommodate us without […]... READ MORE

Amanda Nisbet

House
In this interview you will see [laughs] in almost every reply – perhaps there was a bit of nervous laughter because designer, Amanda Nisbet was a bit worried about her tendency to be unguarded but mostly it is because she really is a person who likes to laugh and whose rooms are colorful, cheerful and […]...

Campion Platt

House
At first the architect and designer, Campion Platt seemed to want to hide behind long, brainy answers to our questions (we cut quite a lot of them) but he loosened up and he’s such a nice man—has an endearing love of dark chocolate and thriller movies, created the most gorgeous non-saccharine pink bedroom in New […]...

Eric Cohler

House
Interior designer Eric Cohler, was a bit frazzled when he opened the door of his apartment. Two beautiful Standard Poodle puppies had arrived the previous day and he had spent much of the night getting them used to their new home. Mind you, he bounced back so quickly that I realized this is a man […]... READ MORE

Duane Hampton

House
From the very start of my interview with Duane Hampton, widow of renowned decorator Mark Hampton, I felt like I was chatting with an old girl friend. She’s a witty, charming woman with a keen sense of humor who sees life for what it is and makes it work. After the early death of her husband in […]... READ MORE

Kathryn Scott

House
Designer Kathryn Scott’s stunning brownstone in Brooklyn Heights rather silenced us with its perfection, combining Asian influences with antiques from Kathryn’s family and art by both her and her artist husband, Wenda Gu. They are both organized and thorough to a point that fascinated us. Kathryn physically learned how to do various skills such... READ MORE

Miles Redd

House
So we’re going to be talking more about you in this interview, rather than about design. We’re not going to ask you so much about whether or not you like furniture on the diagonal. You know, there are no absolutes … although there are certain things that I hate like glass tops on skirted tables […]... READ MORE
