Whether he is designing a custom residence, a home-away- from home boutique hotel, or a line of furniture or textiles, interior designer Campion Platt has one thing in mind: luxury. “Luxury is about both materiality and context,” he explains, adding that context might mean creating clear, open spaces within the confines of a Manhattan residence, or selecting opulent finishes – such as leather, resin, or marble – to accentuate spatial forms.
Campion’s ideas of luxury consistently incorporate fine craftsmanship and contemporary styling as well as eco-sensitive design. For the past twenty years, his firm has shown clients across the country how to make modern design both sophisticated and soothing.
Campion earned an undergraduate degree from University of Michigan, and a Master of Architecture degree from Columbia University. A member of the American Institute of Architects and the Architectural League of NY, he understands the importance of creating architecture and interiors that meld seamlessly.
His holistic approach creates highly personalized spaces – making him a favorite of celebrities including Al Pacino, Meg Ryan, Roger Waters, Conan O’Brien, Jay McInerney and socialite Anne Hearst. A full gamut of specialized artisans and craftspeople execute Campion’s designs, which often incorporate new and innovative material uses.
The designs of Campion Platt, leading architect and 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 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 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.
Recently, Platt launched the Jim Thompson METRO CLOTH Collection of textiles and CAMPION Inc., his custom furniture company. In addition, he launched an eco-friendly textile collection for HBF Textiles in June 2009, winning the Gold Medal at NEOCON. Late last year Campion launched his newest collection, the Mariner Collection of rugs, for Roubini Rugs. This spring Campion will launch his new hospitality collection for Nicoletti, a fine Italian furniture company.
