During his career, David has played an important role in developing the visual aesthetic of Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware and as a result has influenced what constitutes style in the American home.
David's homes in San Francisco, Palm Springs and Kansas City reflect his passion for design and his eye for
detail. His work has been featured in a variety of print media, including Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Real Living Australia, the New York Times and in House Beautiful The Home Book. David was a regular contributor to Kansas City Spaces and wrote the popular Inside Design column. He can be seen on television lifestyle and design segments including HGTV and Hallmark Channel, and served on the board of directors for the Kansas City chapter of DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS).
House Beautiful identifies David
as an unabashed romantic, while Kansas City Spaces defines his style as “a study in elegant living—Cary Grant meets modern style.”
“I enjoy creating spaces that are distinctive and personal,” he says. “Putting together a room that is warm, stylish and collected. Filling it up—adding layers and textures, and moving things around until they feel right.”
