Delphine and Reed Krakoff Pick Their Favorite Works From artnet Galleries
Find out which artworks are currently capturing the attention of this creative power couple.
Most of the time, two are better than one. That’s certainly been the case for Reed and Delphine Krakoff, who together have built an enviable collection of art and design comprised of works by Marc Newsom, Diego Giacometti, Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne, Jean Royère, and Damien Hirst, among other blue-chip art and antiques.
Both have backgrounds in fashion and art: Reed was formerly the CEO of venerable leather-goods house, Coach, and is currently the chief artistic officer at Tiffany & Co. Delphine, meanwhile, has been running her own full-service interior design firm, Pamplemousse Design, since 2000. The couple recently published a book, Houses We Dreamt Of, that showcases their multiple residences, each a spectacular expression of their originality and taste.

The Krakoffs’ Picks From artnet Galleries
Our aesthetic is really a combination of both of our styles, which together create something profoundly personal, and always evolving. We are deeply appreciative of the artistry and the virtuosity with which things are made, as well as the authenticity of the materials and techniques used. We love to juxtapose unexpected elements and create bold, fresh dialogues between pieces that wouldn’t be paired traditionally. –Reed and Delphine Krakoff
