A Timeless Luxury

France-born and New York-based Delphine Krakoff transitioned from being an accessories designer to an interior decorator and created your own design firm in 2000, with an office called Pamplemousse.


According to Delphine, Pamplemousse Design was created with a essential concept that hasn’t changed: keep the company small, and only accept clients who can really appreciate her aesthetic vocabulary of airy, white rooms with lacquered ceilings filled with a skillful juxtaposition of antique European materials and XX century furniture.


A passionate collector herself for many years, with her talented husband Reed Krakoff, the talented creative director of Tiffany & Co., 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 designs.

Delphine and Reed Krakoff are so engaged with each other and so aesthetically in sync that they worked together to create their six own homes.  These include two grand townhouses on New York’s Upper East Side, a rambling stucco house in East Hampton that was the childhood summer home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, an all-white high-modern structure in Palm Beach, a spectacular apartment in an ornate Parisian hôtel particulier and a storybook château in New Canaan, Connecticut.  


A monograph titled Houses That We Dreamt Of: The Interiors of Delphine & Reed Krakoff, takes an in-depth look at their collaborative works. And while you may have seen snippets of their interiors published in magazines throughout the years, you’ve never seen their projects like this.


She was in charge of the store concept for the Reed Krakoff Boutiques in New York, Las Vegas and Tokyo, for which she commissioned special pieces to artists like Mattia BonettiRon Arad and Joris Laarman
