New York-based Interior Designer Daun Curry has been named the 2019 International Interior Designer of the Year in the 23rd edition of Andrew Martin’s prestigious awards programme.

Curry specialises in high-end residential, retail and hospitality projects that are personal, practical and beautiful.

Her current work includes a waterfront estate in the Hamptons and a major renovation of a Modernist house in Los Angeles, as well as several apartment residences in New York City.

The award is judged annually by a celebrity panel. This year saw Professor Gerry McGovern – chief design officer for Land Rover – and Olympic gold medallist Lord Sebastian Coe choose an outstanding designer who fuses minimalism with ultimate glamour.

Martin Waller founded Andrew Martin in 1978, pioneering world-class textile and furniture design and went onto launch the awards programme in 1996 to champion the best interior designers from across the globe.

Now in its 23rd year, the award has since been coined the “Oscars of the design world”, peaking global interest in the award itself and the accompanying annual Interior Design Review. Previous winners are a roll call of the world’s most influential designers.
