Mid century modern inspirations: David Scott Interiors
Mid century modern inspirations | “There is a sensuality in all the furnishings I select. I think about how one line relates to the next, and am always creating harmonious, subtle relationships between all of the pieces.”
David Scott designs visually stimulating, yet highly functional interiors that gracefully meld practical architecture with unique design. For over 20 years, David has served as the Principal and founder of his New York based design firm, David Scott Interiors, LTD. His style blends the timeless elegance of the past with the functionality of the present, using a collaborative and detail-oriented approach to create calming and beautiful environments.
David’s signature designs emphasize the personal style of his clients. The very fabric of his business lies in embracing the natural connection his clients have to their project, ensuring their personality and character are reflected in the design. The result is an inviting environment that is highly personal, comfortable, and practical.
