For the past nine years, Amy Azzarito has been on the forefront of predicting trends in design while also discovering designers and makers and highlighting their crafts. With a degree in the History of Decorative Arts & Design from Parsons and experience lecturing at universities and historical societies across the country,  Amy is a sought-after expert on the topic of design history both past and present.  She just finished the manuscript for her second book, "Home: The Secret History of Everyday Luxury".

She is the former Managing Editor of the trend-setting blog Design*Sponge, where she organized a 30-city book tour. She is a contributor to Food52, Refinery29, Brit & Co, Food52, Design Milk and Architectural Digest. Her New York City apartment was featured in The New York Times and her thoughts on design and trends are frequently solicited by publications, most recently by the Washington Post. She also provides editorial and strategic consulting for companies looking for strategic brand building.
