Cullman & Kravis

          Cullman & Kravis is known for providing the highest quality of design excellence and personal service since 1984. We collaborate closely with our clients to realize their aesthetic ideas and practical needs while adhering to their established budgets. While elegance and practicality is C&K’s first objective, our utmost pride comes from the fact that every home we design reflects the personality of the owner, making no two projects the same.

The goal of our most recent work is to redefine the traditional interior. Our designs have been edited, clarified, and strengthened with new materials and palettes to achieve a “modern traditional” aesthetic. With this fresh approach, the point of view is contemporary while still respecting the 30-year history of our company. We use antiques of all periods and origins alongside modern artworks, custom made furniture, and exceptional textiles to create dynamic interiors that are complex and layered-always comfortable and never overly formal.
