We could spend hours extolling the glories of Duffy’s handiwork. He has, after all, single-handedly spiffed up some of the city’s most stylish residences and commercial spaces—Manny Ramirez’s pad and the Charlesmark Hotel among them. But while Duffy’s signature soft contemporary vision may be breathtaking—and it is breathtaking—in the end, it’s how he works with people that counts. Client after client remarks about his flexibility, his positive attitude, punctuality, respect for budgets, and diligence in meeting demands. In short, he actually listens and, thus, ultimately proves that his ear is every bit as good as his eye.
