As co-owner and design director of the Cazenovia, New York home furnishings retail mecca JD Hunter/home, John David Hunter has built a reputation as one of the most innovative and accomplished architectural and interior designers in the country.

Hunter’s projects span from coast-to-coast, with a portfolio that ranges from full redesigns of existing homes– interior redesign as well as full-out structural changes and additions– to landscaping and pool design.

John David Hunter designs smart kitchens– innovative, functional, flexible– perfect for people who really do cook and entertain.

“I design kitchens for the way people are most comfortable cooking, living and entertaining today,” says Hunter.

By incorporating all three areas, Hunter creates living spaces that are just what his clients want.

Hunter attended Ecole des Beaux Arts in Montreal before becoming a staff interior designer in New York City’s Bloomingdale’s in its heyday.

Building off his knowledge, Hunter began to design for clients around the world before founding the successful Connecticut business, Tulip Tree Collection, with Winston.
