Drake, a color enthusiast, will discuss his style and projects to date. With an astonishingly long career under his belt - 30 years - Drake is responsible for major projects from the renovations of New York City Hall and Gracie Mansion to Mayor Bloomberg's private residence. He's also designed a home for Madonna in Los Angeles, and countless for private citizens.
Drake has designed rug collections for Roubini and Safavieh, a furniture line for Lewis
Mittman, bathroom fixtures for THG, fabrics for Schumacher, sinks for
Elkay, and bath accessories for Labrazel. What a busy man!
His designs are truly creative and bold. Drake chooses interesting furniture with innovative shapes. And he makes a point of including both modern and traditional art in his designs.
But he's also capable of restraint. What a fun conversation this will be!
