ABOUT ELLIE CULLMAN
Ellie Cullman, the 2016 recipient of the New York School of Interior Design’s Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award, founded Cullman & Kravis over 30 years ago. Known for layered, dynamic interiors, luxurious finishes and exquisite details, C&K's work embraces a “modern traditional” aesthetic. This fresh approach is contemporary, yet respects the 30-year track record of the company’s passion for fine art and antiques.
In addition to its interior design practice, Cullman & Kravis recently launched a carpet collection with Crosby Street Studios, a fabric line with Holland & Sherry, and a furniture collection called “Ellie Home.”
Ellie has consistently been included on the coveted AD 100 list of the world’s best interior designers and architects since 2000. She was named one of Architectural Digest's Deans of American Design in 2005, and received the D&D's Star of Design Award in 2009. She has been designated a “Grand Master” by ELLE DECOR in 2016 and 2017.
Ellie is the co-author with Tracey Pruzan of Decorating Master Class: The Cullman & Kravis Way, (Harry Abrams, 2008), The Detailed Interior: Decorating Up Close with Cullman & Kravis, (The Monacelli Press, 2013), and From Classic to Contemporary: Decorating with Cullman & Kravis, (The Monacelli Press, 2017).
