Rizzoli to Publish First Book on Life and Career of Interior Design Icon Holly Hunt

This fall, internationally known design legend and founder of HOLLY HUNT and, most recently, House of Hunt, Holly Hunt will unveil her inaugural book, titled HOLLY HUNT: FEARLESS IN THE WORLD OF DESIGN — a captivating biography chronicling her personal and professional journey, published by Rizzoli New York.

To be released in partnership with HOLLY HUNT, her former eponymous design brand, the book will walk readers through Hunt’s life and decades-long career, propelled by a vision for modern living and passion for design. 

“Being fearless in design means using intuition, putting trust in one’s vision, being open to risk and taking leaps of faith,” Hunt says. “Throughout my career and life, I’ve relied on the power of being open while staying focused on the details, building strong relationships and partnerships along the way.“ 

Showcasing decades of beautiful craftsmanship and design, the book will delve into Holly’s early years at HOLLY HUNT, where she pioneered a new model for showrooms filled with luxury custom furnishings. Hunt revolutionized the industry, creating furniture, lighting, and textile collections that focus on rich materiality and exacting scale and proportion, through her ability to see the “quarter-inch difference.” Over the course of four decades, Hunt set new standards for global design, opening showrooms from New York to London. Since selling HOLLY HUNT to Knoll Inc., Hunt brings her uncompromising level of quality and precision to her latest venture, House of Hunt, a boutique interior design studio she launched in 2021.

The book will showcase the work of House of Hunt, including the debut of Hunt’s latest personal project: a never-before-seen modernist masterwork home in Aspen. Additionally, readers can look forward to a time capsule of Hunt’s previous homes and favorite projects, each revealed through the lens of how they brought about key life learnings, bridged one chapter to the next, and acted as the backdrop of Hunt’s life – from private pursuits to sensational galas and parties.

HOLLY HUNT: FEARLESS IN THE WORLD OF DESIGN is available for pre-sale online. It will be released in October 2024 and will be sold at select retailers worldwide as well as published in the U.S. ($65), Canada ($85) and in the U.K. (₤50).
