Coffee Cup Lid

Louise Harpman was featured in the New York Times article, "Who Made That Coffee Lid?" The article mentions a piece in her coffee cup lid collection and how it fits into the trajectory of the design of coffee cup lids over the decades. Harpman has one of the best collections in the world, with some of her pieces recently featured in FOOD: Transforming the American Table 1950–2000 at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

Harpman's architecture firm, Specht Harpman, received a Best of Houzz Award for Design from Houzz, a leading platform in home design and remodeling. You can see the winning staircase redesign, here.

Specht Harpman received the Builder's Choice Award and the Custom Home Award for their redesign of a tiny residential space in the city in the Manhattan Micro Loft project. See how Specht Harpman transformed a 320 square foot space, here.

Specht Harpman, teamed with Carrier and Co., was also featured in Architectural Digest for their redesign project of the Stirratt Residence in New Canaan, Connecticut. See what Architectural Digest calls, "a polished take on postwar architecture" here.
