Bunny Williams' collection for Ballard Designs

Bunny Williams is a designer with a modern vision, a sense of history, and the confidence to take the unexpected path. Both a trailblazer and a tastemaker, Williams’ style is classic, but never predictable.

A native of Charlottesville, VA, Williams began her career at Stair & Co., the prestigious English antiques dealer, followed by 22 years with the venerable firm, Parish-Hadley Associates. She formed her own firm, Bunny Williams Inc. in 1988. Today she not only runs her design firm, but with her husband John Rosselli, owns Treillage Ltd., a shop selling garden objects, antiques, and decorative accessories, based in New York. In 2008 she introduced a celebrated home furnishings collection, Bunny Williams Home, which continues to expand online (www.bunnywilliamshome.com) and in showrooms across the country. New collections are introduced annually. Williams’ fourth book, “Scrapbook for Living” was published by Stewart, Tabori & Chang in November 2010.

William’s work has been published around the world both in print and online. She has received numerous honors and awards including: the Interior Design Hall of Fame, House Beautiful Giants of Design, Elle Décor’s A List, Timeless Design Award from the Royal Oak Society, Living Landmarks from the NY Landmarks Conservancy, the Etoile award from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), and several Design Innovator awards from CT Cottages & Gardens. Williams has been named to the AD 100 list and has served as Chairman of the Kips Bay Designer Show House several years running.

Williams is a fast adapter to new technology and stays in touch with her expanding fan base through several channels.
