Cullman & Kravis: Interiors

Cullman & Kravis, an AD100 Hall of Fame design firm, creates interiors in a fresh traditional style that celebrates color, unique furnishings and finishes, vibrant modern art, and the best antiques. This is their most comprehensive book in many years and celebrates a renowned firm working at the peak of its forty-year practice.

Ceaseless in its pursuit to create “an alchemy of old and new,” the highly esteemed firm of Cullman & Kravis is renowned for its ability to fashion modern, cohesive, richly layered homes rooted in tradition and the respect for function and decoration. Utilizing their decades of experience, they build out rooms from the finest classical foundations, then infuse bold, stylish, and modish elements, mixing exquisite antiques with contemporary art to create truly dynamic spaces conceived to stand the test of time.

The homes in this book (the majority exclusive to the volume) include sumptuous Manhattan apartments, a historic house overlooking the Long Island Sound, a contemporary beach house in the Hamptons, and a modern minimalist Palm Beach waterfront estate. Cullman & Kravis explain their approach to each, from the big picture of client preference to the smallest detail. In the process, they deliver a master class in twenty-first-century design that covers such topics as: creative solutions for imparting personality, texture, and shine, with carpets, fabrics, and finishes; when to use custom furniture and artisanal/craft/art pieces; and when to embellish with standout details and when to keep things subtle.

With spectacular photography from Eric Piasecki, this volume will be a must-have for every enthusiast of interior design.
