New York is a global capital of the design industry. It is home to a host of prominent interior designers whose projects across residential, commercial and public spaces influence design trends around the world. New York is also home to a wide range of design resources whose quality products and expert services are used by designers to realize their visions.
In our inaugural Tools of the Trade lecture series co-hosted with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New York Properties, we are honored to present some of New York’s most distinguished design resources – each firm a legend and trendsetter in its respective field.
