Delphine Krakoff grew up in Paris, where she attended business school. Though her education was in business, it was her own interest in design that landed her jobs at the luxury houses of Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior in Paris, and later Coach and Ralph Lauren in New York. Her venture into the world of interior design came by chance, when a friend offered her the opportunity to decorate his classic Hamptons beach house. Her innate sense of style and natural French flair made the transition into the trade seamless, and led to the creation of her own interior design company in 2000.
A passionate collector herself for many years, with her talented husband Reed, she has access to the best dealers, galleries and auctions houses around the world, and can act as a curator to build a comprehensive collection of decorative arts and design.
Since 2000, her projects have included apartments and townhouses in New York City, country estates in the Hamptons, upstate New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and ski lodges out West.
