Last Thursday I was out at one of my favorite shops, Armour and Co., and my parents very generously bought me Albert Hadley: The Story of America’s Preeminent Designer by Adam Lewis.Â This book is pricey (though you can pick it up at amazon for about $40 right now), but it is one every interior design book collection must have.Â The sketches, prints, and photographs are absolutely amazing, and the stories told by Hadley to Lewis are charming.Â One of the most amazing things about Hadley’s work is that it is so classic and timeless.Â The only giveaways that date the photos of the older rooms are a grainy quality of print or an outdated television set. Â The man does love to throw in a zebra rug wherever possible, but he makes it work!
