5 Questions For: Debra Folz, Debra Folz Design

Designer Debra Folz in front of the Wrap Extending Dining Table, a piece she debuted at WantedDesign.

Name: Debra Folz
Title: Owner and designer

Which of your designs are you most excited about right now and why?
The Wrap Extending Dining Table. The development was much longer than usual—about a year. The leaf is self-storing—and when you open it, it’s part of the design. It doesn’t look extendable. It looks woven into the piece.

Tell us three words that embody your design philosophy.
Innovative. Simple. Colorful. (One more? Feminine.)

What’s your favorite place in New York?
The Museum of Art and Design. If I come in for a day, I try to go there.

Who or what are you inspired by right now?
I like meeting craftspeople and collaborating with them to see how we can use their ways of working to make more-modern ideas.

What do you think about the color gray?
I love it this year. It’s quiet and understated. Kind of classic.
