Turning The Tables: Wendy Goodman, New York Magazine’s Design Editor

In my line of work you cross paths with so many talented people – editors, stylists, photographers, PR professionals – it’s out-of-this-world inspiring. Since they’re often kind enough to interview (or photograph, or work with) me I wanted to have a space to turn the tables on them. To see what makes them tick, what stories their homes are telling, and more.


This month I interviewed Wendy Goodman, an international and inimitable leader in the design community. She’s responsible for New York Magazine‘s twice-a-year Design Hunting magazine, as well as the perfectly-produced “Great Room” features.

If that doesn’t sound glamorous enough, Wendy has written books on Tony Duquette and Gloria Vanderbilt, and covered fashion and design for Harper’s Bazaar and the New York Times Magazine. We met in Paris almost 20 years ago – I was interning and she was an editor at House & Garden. A beautiful friendship developed then, and has continued all these years later. She’s not only an amazing talent, she’s also one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Read on for her on-point answers and a glimpse at some the “Great Rooms” in her own life. And of course – make sure to follow her (@DHWendyGoodman) and New York on Instagram!
