Emily Evans Eerdmans is an acclaimed design expert, historian, and author.
Eerdmans received her master's degree in fine and decorative arts from Sotheby's Institute of Art in London and teaches connoisseurship and design history at the New York School of Interior Design. She is the author of several books including The World of Madeleine Castaing, Mario Buatta: Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration and the 1958–2012 catalogue raisonné of furniture artist Wendell Castle. She is an alumni of the Attingham Summer School and a certified USPAP appraiser.
Connoisseurship is the cornerstone of Eerdmans Fine Art. It was while living in Paris that Eerdmans discovered the intellectual and aesthetic pleasures of the French pursuit of the best, where each element of life, from croissants to commodes, is considered and curated. In 2011, after more than a decade of working for some of the world's foremost dealers, including Partridge, Devenish, and Hyde Park Antiques, Eerdmans began independently advising private clients in all aspects of their collections. Discretion, transparency and expertise are paramount to EFA.
