Designing American Homes Since 1981

Anthony Baratta, the king of East-Coast chic, is one of the most celebrated and respected interior designers of the day with a global following of loyal fans. He is known for his bold use of color and scale that honors tradition while defying predictability.

His design work has graced close to 50 magazine covers and he has received consistent coverage in respected shelter and lifestyle media brands such as Architectural Digest, Cottages & Gardens, Elle Décor, House Beautiful, House & Garden, Traditional Home, Veranda, Coastal Living, and World of Interiors. His own homes have appeared in The New York Times Magazine on three separate occasions.

Anthony’s work has been celebrated in the Cooper-Hewitt Museum’s National Design Triennial: Inside Design Now. He was also named one of Traditional Homes “20 Design Icons” and awarded Benjamin Moore’s coveted “Hue Award” for lifetime achievement in design.

Anthony’s new furniture collection with the venerable Thomasville Furniture brand debuted this year at Highpoint.  The celebrated launch consists of 40++ collection of upholstery, case pieces, mirrors and accent furniture.


In addition, Anthony’s signature bedding collections, Starboard and Westhampton, with industry leader Wildcat Territory, are the perfect complement to his bedroom furnishings for retailers and designers alike.  Next on the docket? A spectacular collection of custom Baratta rug designs with Capel Rugs, due to launch in the fall of 2017 at High Point Market.

His eponymous design store in Westhampton Beach, New York, opened in 2013 and instantly became a mecca for all things American—showcasing a wide variety of revamped antiques and folk art mixed with a pop of the new and unexpected. A second shop opened this Spring, specifically featuring his popular Thomasville line of furniture in a seaside cottage-style showroom.

Anthony is the co-author of two books: All-American: The Exuberant Style of William Diamond and Anthony Baratta; and Diamond Baratta Design. He has an active social media audience (20,000 on Instagram and 30,000 on Facebook).

He is a graduate of Fordham University.
