The Powerful Influence of Art and Photography

Last week, IFDA•NY held its February educational program at Swann Galleries with a panel discussion on the influence of art and photography on interior design and home furnishings.

 Panelists Vicente Wolf and Daile Kaplan brought expertise from two different perspectives. As a leading interior designer, Wolf spoke about art as an educational tool that has informed his ideas about space, perspective and color palettes. Daile spoke from her expertise as an art curator, collector and appraiser, and discussed photography as one of the major trends in modern art collections.
