Best of Boston

2003 Best Interior Designer

Dennis Duffy, Duffy Design Group

An interior designer would call it classic modernism; we call it sleekness without pretense. However you describe Dennis Duffy’s characteristic geometric lines and striking color combinations, you’d know them in an instant. Distinctive and original are the two adjectives uttered by nearly every client of Duffy Design Group, which was the team responsible for the livable luxury that is Manny Ramirez’s Ritz-Carlton penthouse (but is just as happy to help Jane and Joe Suburb renovate their living space). Duffy has mastered the most delicate balancing act of all: divining clients’ needs, yet supplying enough style to fill a house.
