Billy Cotton brings wit, intelligence, and style to the everyday things we live with and use in our homes. Rejecting the old-fashioned ideas that design or life should be divided between the plain and the fancy or the inexpensive and the exorbitant, he has pioneered an aesthetic of fresh, sophisticated, original designs that are effortlessly modern and subtly grounded in design history. After creating bespoke furniture for private clients as a Pratt student, Billy launched Custom Resource in 2004. In 2010 he debuted his dinnerware collection at Bergdorf Goodman.
