Decorating Your Home With Simplicity And Light
January 4th, 2015
Not surprising that my favorite decorator made last year’s 2014 AD100 list. Recently I partnered with Vicente Wolf who was also named one of the top 100 designers by Metropolitan Home’s “Design 100”. House Beautiful named Wolf one of the 10 most influential designers in the United States and Interior Design Magazine inducted him in its "Designer Hall of Fame". He has received the Pantone Color Award and, in 2009, Wolf was named one of the "Top 20 Designers of the past 20 Years" by Traditional Home and was honored as the "Design Icon of 2009" at the Las Vegas Market in September.
For the past three decades Vicente Wolf has fostered the global development of his brand through a simplicity-driven principle that infuses his many creative endeavors: interior design, photography, art collection and global travel. From the spacious light-filled loft in New York City where his company is headquartered, Wolf and his team at Vicente Wolf Associates build on his passion for design, maintaining an impressive portfolio that spans multinational conglomerates and private homes to hotels and restaurants across the globe.
Always on the lookout for new ways in which to inspire the world of design, Wolf’s eye for detail has created a reputation for quality appreciated by his discerning client list, the creative industry as a whole, and his international partnerships with some of the world’s top luxury brands. Award winning designer, international speaker, book publisher, lauded retailer and celebrated business partner, the designer now heads up two companies: VW Home by Vicente Wolf and Vicente Wolf Associates.
Bringing a truly global perspective to his work, New York decorator Vicente Wolf travels the world seeking out the extraordinary artifacts that enliven his clients’ homes. At a Hamptons beach house for gallerist Ralph Pucci, for example, he made convivial companions out of a Chinese cocktail table, an Ethiopian armchair, and seating by Jens Risom in the living area. A talented furniture designer, Wolf also creates comfortable, clean-lined pieces for his VW Home collection, which he sells at his Manhattan showroom alongside items sourced on his far-flung voyages. The remarkable photos he takes on these journeys appear in the pages of the three books he’s written on travel and interiors. Wolf’s esteemed practice, now into its fourth decade, continues to be marked by a joyous sense of wanderlust.
I for one can’t wait to see Vicente’s amazing photos and items he brings back from his next journey! vicentewolf.com
