In January, we joined thousands of other interior design professionals and enthusiasts from around the globe at Maison et Objet, a biannual design fair that takes place in the chic capital of the world: Paris. The fair showcases all that is brand new in the home furniture, accessories, and tableware world and sets the tone for the season’s interior design trends. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite trends from the show: Blush pink: The Pantone Color of 2016 officially known as Rose Quartz, is still taking center stage. Seen in upholstery fabrics, wall coverings, accessories, and even paint color, this feminine, soft, and yet luscious tone; gives us all sorts of warm and fuzzy feelings. Flora and fauna: Going beyond the animal print, which has been a ubiquitous trend for many years, animals invade the interior design world in full force in other fun and unexpected shapes and forms: from playful taxidermy to bunny-shaped lamps and illustrations on tableware, fabrics, and wallcovering, there's an abundance of options for those wanting to incorporate fauna in their interiors. (We prefer our taxidermy of the faux variety....but real was seen as well!) Fringe binge: A constant on SS16 fashion runways from Paris to New York, the trend has officially cast its spell on interior designers as well. Fringes are cleverly employed to upholstery pieces, chairs, and even mirrors in ways we've never seen before to suit the current preference. We...

The nation’s top interior designers and architects participated in this year’s 44th Annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House, hosted by New York’s premiere local youth organization, the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. Each designer spent the eight weeks transforming The Carlton House Townhouse at 19 East 61st Street in New York City’s iconic Lenox Hill neighborhood. Hand-selected by the Kips Bay Decorator Show House Committee and led by its chair, renowned interior designer Bunny Williams, this year’s talented group of 21 designers and architects brought the interiors of The Carlton House Townhouse, an impressive 10,000-square-foot raw space, to life. The townhouse, which also has 5,000 square feet of outdoor space, sits adjacent to The Carlton House, a 68-unit residential luxury building. “This year’s team of participating designers and architects is an extraordinary mix of veterans and newcomers and who not only are doing amazing things for the interior design community, but are also dedicated to supporting our cause,” said Bunny Williams. This year's Show House raised over 2 million dollars for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.

New York City interior designer Kati Curtis has launched her signature furniture collection for The New Traditionalists. The collaborative program dubbed "The Syndicate" expands TNT's custom program beyond just one-of-a-kind pieces, showcasing designs that complement the standard TNT aesthetic. Kati brought her signature global style to the collection siting influences from India, Indonesia and China. Take a look below! The collection is now on view at the New York Design Center in The New Traditionalists showroom on the 7th floor. The pieces feature the high quality craftsmanship synonymous with TNT along with hardwood construction, valued old world manufacturing techniques, and innovative, hand applied artisan finishes.

Along with many of the Top Manhattan Interior Designers, Kati Curtis is featured in Best and Company's video series, "In Good Company". In this episode, we talked about my formula for success in all of my client's designs, my 22 year background in design, and how my father's contractor background was a driving force for my career. For my clients' projects, I always like to include an element of craft- using high quality craftsman to create custom pieces. I include an element of culture with global influence. Lastly, I include a collected feel with items collected from around the world over a period of time- whether from my own personal collection or from my clients' travels. This formula makes our designs inherently unique and personal to each client, and really differentiates us from other design firms. We hope you enjoy this episode of "In Good Company" as much as I did creating it. Thank you so much to Best and Company for including me in your lineup of top Manhattan interior designers.

Kati Curtis and 7 other top interior designers spot trends at High Point Market. As a style spotter, I was chosen along with several other top designers from around the country to scout out the top trends at this year's High Point Market. At Terracea, I quickly picked up on the global influence of their pieces that featured a twist on traditional marketplace patterns. I chose this stunning console that takes a typical marketry pattern and puts it on a relief on the front of the doors. The pattern was carved out and had an amazing textural quality that I loved. The mix of traditional and contemporary is something I find to be really exciting. Next, I stopped at Cisco Home. I was really excited to see some more Southwestern, Americana qualities that I noticed throughout High Point Market. The John Derian collection for Cisco really stood out to me as a really sophisticated, New York quality with that southwest flare. I chose this stunning John Derian couch from this line as my piece of choice. It has a very upscale, New York silhouette and feel to it, but they found these vintage Moroccan rugs and upholstered them with it. This really changed the whole feel of the piece and made it a show stopper! If you've been thinking about bringing us on to design your dream home- now is the time!

The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) has featured our own NYC Interior Designer Kati in their Alumni Video Series this year. An honor - "Accepted with much gratitude for the top notch education I received. " she gushes. In this video, I discussed how my family's careers in general contracting and construction led me to interior design. I even used to draw floor plans as a little girl! After SCAD, my career took me in all kinds of different directions and to different experiences. From designing commercial hospitals to working in big architecture firms, I was learning so much- but I felt like something was lacking. I wasn't able to really impact the human experience in the way I wanted. This led me into residential work, which is what I do today. My education at SCAD really has been such a great foundation for my career. All of the principles of form, shape, and proportion that I studied are things I use every day. I spoke a bit about how my LEED accreditation and style have been so important in how I approach my clients' projects- and the education from SCAD really has been the greatest gift.
