New York antiques dealer Todd Merrill praised Kravitz's collection, calling it "impeccable," and naming 'The Monster' - a 12 foot long console - as his favourite piece.

Kravitz formed interior and furniture design company Kravitz Design in 2005. The company has since designed private homes and a recording studio.

Kravitz's collection includes furniture by Karl Springer, Willy Rizzo and Paul Evans.
