Albert Hadley: The Story of America's Preeminent Interior Designer

Albert Hadley: The Story of America's Preeminent Interior Designer Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here, in his own words, is the first complete look at the career of Albert Hadley, legendary interior designer. A lavishly illustrated celebration of more than half a century of stunning interiors work, the book explores Hadley's personal and professional influences. It traces the path of a career that brought him into contact with all of the major figures in twentieth-century design: First as a student and then a professor at Parsons School of Design, where he became a close friend of Billy Baldwin and was by turn a student, friend, and colleague of Van Day Truex; to his working with Eleanor Brown at McMillen, Inc.; to his influential partnership, Parish Hadley, with the venerable Sister Parish; to his current work as the head of Albert Hadley, Inc. Exploring Hadley's design philosophy and process in great detail, the book covers the rooms that made design history, from the magnificent Rosedown Plantation to the Kennedy White House to Mrs. Vincent Astor's library. Enriched with dozens of new and archival images, as well as Hadley's acclaimed sketches and a catalogue raisonné listing every major article and book written about Hadley's work, Albert Hadley is the definitive, exclusive look at one of the most brilliant designers this country has ever seen.

Book News Annotation:

Hadley was the decorator of the Rosedown Plantation, the Kennedy White House, and Mrs. Brooke Astor's library, among other commissions. In this volume, designer and critic Lewis provides a text narrating Hadley's projects supplemented with extended passages by Hadley himself. Much of the oversized volume (9.25x12.25") contains color plates of the interiors and Hadley's drawings.
