In 2015 Gabriel and Brooke Anderson launched their furniture brand, Gabriel Dean Design. Sothebys called them “designers to watch” and indeed they have quickly gained recognition for their pieces which effortlessly inhabit the space between rigorous mathematical precision and an almost whimsical freedom of form. Now Gabriel and Brooke are taking the same sensibilities that have made their furniture so successful and applying them to the field of interior design, with their new venture: Dean+Dahl.
Since the early twentieth century, couples like Charles and Ray Eames have shown that the union of two different designers often produces stronger design. Dean+Dahl continues this tradition by uniting the unique talents of Gabriel and Brooke. Gabriel was mentored by Jamie Drake and Vicente Wolfe, two of the design world’s top talents, and holds advanced degrees in both interior and industrial design. In contrast, Brooke specializes in counseling and human behavior. She is focused on how people interact with and are influenced by the spaces they live in. Together, Gabriel and Brooke create interiors that are beautiful but also improve the lives of the people who interact with them.
Gabriel and Brooke have been married for twelve years and are the proud adoptive parents of three children; Penelope, Tucker, and Wolfgang. Though they’re Colorado natives, they now live in Westchester, New York.
