Almost always when I begin a new project and need some inspiration I find myself perusing the website of Bunny Williams. Before starting her own firm in 1988, Bunny learned from the best in the business- having worked for Parish- Hadley Associates for 22 years before venturing out on her own.
Bunny is the master of creating spaces that are actually livable. Although she was schooled in "the classics, restraint and appropriateness" all of which "are hallmarks of Bunny's style" NEVER is a coffee tables too far away from the sofa, and never does a seat not have a place to rest a drink. She truly takes the time to think HOW someone will be utilizing the space and how to make it realistic in use. As a designer who works mainly on primary homes this is something my clients always stress- wanting a home that is comfortable.
Bunny has been expanding her interior design empire. I was sad to learn that Treillage on the Upper East Side closed but a woman can't do it all! and Bunny has several books, a furniture line, a fabric collab with Lee Jofa, and clients all over the world. No idea how she does it all but I am glad she does as I source from her quite often.
Check out Bunny's work below - always original, always classic, always timeless.
