“Design inspired by the imagination and realized through craft”
The designs of Campion Platt, a leading interior designer, whose projects range from residences and boutique hotels to lines of furniture and textile collections, embody luxury, innovation and an eco-friendly consciousness. A member of the American Institute of Architects and the Architectural League of NY, Platt has received numerous accolades for his holistic approach to design – such as the 2012 prestigious ranking on Architectural Digest’s “AD 100” list of the world’s top interior designers and New York Magazine’s “The City’s 100 Best Architects and Decorators,” as well as being published in Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, House Beautiful, Veranda, World of Interiors, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Wallpaper, Esquire, and Travel & Leisure, with a significant celebrity client following.
Campion’s full-service design firm has been a leader in residential, hospitality & commercial design. Campion’s recent design projects have included Green Homes at The Greenbrier, a unique branded “green” neighborhood in West Virginia, Ritz-Carlton Residences, a high-rise condominium in Atlanta, and other luxurious residences in New York City, the tri-state area and in the Caribbean, including private homes and a planned community on Ambergris Cay, a luxury private island resort in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Platt has also launched the Jim Thompson METRO CLOTH Collection of textiles and CAMPION Inc., his custom furniture company featuring the Campaign Collection. In June 2009 launched an eco-friendly textile collection for HBF Textiles, winning the Gold Medal at NEOCON. Late last year Campion launched his newest collection, the Mariner Collection of rugs, for Roubini Rugs. And most recently Campion launched Campion Platt for Nicoletti, an upscale hospitality furnishings line for Nicoletti, a famed Italian furniture company.
In 2010 Campion launched together with Digital Playspace a new interactive gaming platform, Digital Dollhouse, featuring animated game play for young girls and as it turns out, mothers and women in their 30s. Many of Campion’s customized designs were digitized and become playing pieces in this exciting new online game. The game has since evolved into Dreamhouse Designer on Facebook. In addition, Campion has recently joined the Advisory board of www.projectdecòr.com, a design and furniture ecommerce website.
“Made to Order”, Campion’s first book, published by Monacelli Press in late 2010, features a compilation of published projects accompanied by his design philosophy and insightful anecdotes for the interested reader.
Campion recently joined the New York School of Interior Design Advisory Board.
Campion lives in New York and Palm Beach, is married to internet entrepreneur Tatiana Platt and has four children, Jeremy, Fox, Xenia and Rivoli.
