Geoffrey Bradfield is a world-renowned interior designer, sought after by Fortune 500 clients and others for whom the firm long ago coined the phrase “silent celebrities,” which include some of the most prominent aristocratic and royal families in the world. Among Bradfield’s many highly celebrated projects are: a major overhaul of Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney’s Westbury, Long Island estate, restoration of the late King Hussein’s mansion in Maryland, the design of Hollywood director Oliver Stone’s riverside New York apartment, and a reconceptualization of the 200-room Equinox Resort in Vermont, a redesign so far-reaching and transformative that Starwood Hotels, Equinox’s parent company, elevated the property to its Luxury Collection.
Bradfield is currently at work on monumental residences around the globe, including Tokyo, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing, Jakarta, Dubai and Jerusalem. He brings his unique point of view—which combines the finest art and antiques and a quintessentially contemporary sensibility with state-of-the-art technology and rare, lavish materials from every hemisphere—to palatial residences, private jets and yachts, and to singular office environments from Mexico to Moscow, Canada to the Caribbean and America to Asia.
This impressive body of work has garnered Bradfield countless accolades. He has been named among the world’s top designers by Architectural Digest and appeared innumerable times on the AD100 list. The Robb Report recognized him as one of the Top Ten Designers in World. Architectural Digest also anointed Bradfield a “Dean of American Design.” He was included in the Millennium Issue of the book America’s Elite 1000—the Ultimate List. Among the many honors bestowed upon Bradfield have been the American Cancer Society Man of Achievement Award (2012), the Hyland Award for Design Excellence (2012) and New York School of Interior Design’s Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award (2013). Archbishop Desmond Tutu, in his capacity as chairman of South Africa’s Phelophepa Healthcare Train, presented the South African-born designer an Award for Excellence in 2007 “in recognition of his sterling success globally and his contributions to his country of birth.”
