JAMES "FORD" HUNIFORD
James Huniford - known to everyone as Ford- is the founder of Huniford Design Studio in New York. His homes achieve an uncanny equilibrium, balancing elegance with comfort- and always representative of the people who inhabit them. This he achieves without employing a set formula or chasing after mercurial trends. Spaces are timeless- and specific to their owners' personalities.
Design on a Dime Fundraiser
In 2004, Ford founded the fundraiser Design on a Dime, which has raised more than 20 million dollars since its inception. At the annual event, top designers come together to create unique room vignettes with curated merchandise - all for sale to the design-savy attendees. Proceeds go toward Housing Works' initiative to end homlessness and AIDS in New York City.
