To be authentic is to be at peace in our imperfections

Drew McGukin tackles the interior design world with a unique level of energy, great pace, and integrity. He is known for a touch of the unexpected, combined with beautiful textures and bold patterns that vibrate with a perfect amount of sophistication, warmth, innovation, style, and approachability. Graduating from the New York School of Interior Design in May 2010, Drew kicked off the lead designer in his own New York-based firm in October 2010.

While Classically trained, this self-proclaimed pattern-addict has fast become one of the leading contemporary designers in today’s market. “I’ve never been a wallflower,” says Drew. “Neither are my interiors.” In 2019, Introspective Magazine described Drew as designing “with a commanding intelligence and an ability to articulate his ideas sharply and clearly – a rare quality among younger designers, who often struggle to describe their work. And his aesthetic is anything but recessive. His style is forthright and high impact, characterized by strong and graphic patterns deployed with confidence and skill while avoiding eyeball-straining shades that can be visually overwhelming.”

The International Furnishings & Design Association quickly recognized Drew’s Signature style and named him a Rising Star. Drew has sat on various designer advisory councils including the ASID Board of Directors and the New York Design Center’s Access to Design Referral Network. He has also engaged as a creative consultant for renowned industry giants like Cosentino, Delta Facet Company, and Monogram. His work is regularly featured through traditional and nontraditional media, and a favorite across numerous social channels. His portfolio remains a standout on heavy-hitting digital design platforms like 1stdibs and Houzz – a nod to his extraordinary online following. In 2018 Drew launched his first capsule furnishings collection with Crate & Barrel.
