Wovn Interviews: Augusta Hoffman

The New York based designer is known for combining timeless architecture with modern, unexpected interior furnishings and objects. We sat down with Augusta to hear about what's on her mind and what's inspiring her at home and at work.

Wovn Home: What’s one of your most treasured souvenirs?

I flew back from Marrakech with a suitcase full of green Tamegroute pottery. The bold color brings so much spirit to my kitchen!

What’s in your cart?

I have been eyeing an Otto Schultz lounge chair for quite a while - time to hit purchase.

What’s one thing you’d like your work to be known for?

Happy clients.

Where’s your happy place?

My living room in NYC - even better when filled with friends and cocktails on a Friday evening.

What’s for dinner?

I went to culinary school in my early twenties, but now my husband is the cook - he surprises me with an amazing dinner every night!

What’s the song that gets you going on a slow day?

Shania Twain always helps.
