James Huniford is the Founder of the interior design firm Huniford Design Studio in New York. When designing a Manhattan townhouse, a beach house getaway, or a Northern California residence, Huniford blends new and old, uniting found objects with refined materials in distinctive combinations and vignettes. Whether it’s the gentle curve of a whale bone or the circular repetition of over-sized gears, one-of-a-kind objects inspire all of Huniford’s designs. His signature use of calming wall colors highlights the importance of objects, art, and furniture, as a canvas does for a painter.
Representing the U.S. on the international stage, Huniford Design Studio was awarded "Highly Commended" and best in the Interior Design Private Residence - New York category for an eco-friendly penthouse on Bond St. and named as one the most exceptional projects of 2016 by the Americas Property Awards.
In May 2017, the firm introduced the Huniford Collection, a luxury furnishings line that brings graceful design with optimal craftsmanship. James Huniford is also the designer of a fabric collection for Lee Jofa and was selected by Architectural Digest as one of the “Top 100 Designers.” His work has appeared in American, Italian and French editions of AD, Elle Décor, W, Vogue, New York Times, and House Beautiful among others.
