In the world of design, Vicente Wolf has been at the top for over 35 years. From his spacious, light-filled loft in New York City, where his company is headquartered, Wolf and his team build on a passion for design that is guided by integrity and simplicity. He maintains this focus throughout his many creative endeavors which include photography, art collection
and global travel in addition to interior design. Wolf’s portfolio offers a snapshot of the ultimate American aesthetic: from multinational conglomerates to private homes, from hotels to restaurants. Included among his design portfolio are: the Westin Hotel Executive Suites, and several installations at 15 Union Square West, all in New York City; the Manhattan apartment and Westchester guest house of Clive Davis; Liberty National Golf Club in New Jersey; and residences abroad in France, Israel, Japan, Saudi Arabia and Sweden. Vicente Wolf is author of three design books: Learning to See, Crossing Boundaries, and Lifting the Curtain on Design. In addition to his design company, Wolf has created VW Home, the luxury showroom which showcases his line of custom upholstery, along with antiques, lighting, fabrics, mirrors, furniture and accessories which he has handpicked while traveling the globe. The showroom also offers interior design services utilizing products selected and designed by Wolf.
