Nope… I’m not talking about those Million Dollar Decorators (Thank you very much, Bravo!)
Those two, although not in partnership any more, were together for 25 years tricking out some amazing homes. During the 80s and the 90s, they were shamelessly gouging their clients, marking up shit by 3 times, pissing off Anna Wintour, defending themselves in court (and in the court of public opinion) against gouging and pissing, and were looked upon by some in the interior design industry as being despicable. But they can conjure up eclectic and edited, classic, magical spaces that reek gently of luxury, and in some circles their hefty price tags have come to be seen as something of a status symbol. Fraudulent billing has undoubtedly been going on for a very long time in interior designing (and I know something about that), and is not a discouraging phenomenon to some very well heeled clients.
So, together, and now separately, Sills and Huniford, professionally shrugged off the “thieves” label that they were tagged with, and continue to make magic happen with their exquisite taste.
