New York Interior Design, 1935-1985. Limited Edition
New York City has always been home to the chic and urbaneâa place where Andy Warhol entertained in his French Empire salon and where Babe Paley served martinis and cigarettes in her taxicab-yellow living room. Who made this city the center of cosmopolitan interior design as we know it today? The answer is found in the lavishly illustrated profiles of the nearly 100 interior designers featured in the two-volumes of New York Interior Design, 1935--1985.
Over 600 photographs assembled by author Judith Gura present a visual biography of the cityâs interior innovators. From the refreshed Francophilia of Eleanor McMillen Brown to the high-tech minimalism of Ward Bennett, New York Interior Design unfolds a glittering panorama of New Yorkâs old world duplexes, river and park-view towers, and its minimalist downtown lofts.
