Scottsdale interior designer Christopher Coffin turned to design in a career move prompted by the 9/11 tragedy. A corporate executive who spent nearly as much time abroad and in New York as at home in Arizona, Christopher was encouraged to make the leap by Anne Gale, a since-retired Scottsdale design maven who convinced him to join her firm. A long-time antiques collector and a master at blending new and old, Christopher, now head of his own design business, taps his background in textiles (he holds a bachelor’s degree in apparel and textile marketing) in his multi-layered designs, as exemplified in his own home.
