In 1976, my wife and partner, artist Taffy Dahl, and I began to collaborate with the best and best-known talents in architecture and design. We’ve traveled widely to design palettes for unique locations and geographies, and have created colors for a broad range of structures: from contemporary city apartments to great country houses, as well as hotels, restaurants, stores, libraries, and art museums.

“Kaufman is one of the best partners an architect could have. He’s the rare painter who understands architecture. I gave him carte blanche in my own New York apartment, where he used 14 different colors in one room, and it was marvelous.”
— Philip Johnson, Architect / excerpt: Harper’s Bazaar





“I set the architectural color strategy and tones. But Donald helps me have a dialogue with myself. I like to work with him as an expert in developing gradations of colors.”
— Charles Gwathmey, Architect / excerpt, Architecture Magazine
