There’s been a lot of buzz this week about the upcoming Rooms With A View 2011.
This year’s theme is “The Next Generation” with a tribute to Albert Hadley, the “Dean of American Design”. Mr. Hadley has contributed enormously to the American design aesthetic, most notably through his work at McMillen Inc. and his partnership with Sister Parish in their firm, Parish-Hadley Associates.
Part of this “next generation” is my friend, Sam Allen! As the youngest designer invited to participate, Sam has dreamed up a delicious cold weather escape with a nod to the Old Hollywood – Brentwood pool cabana. Enveloped in navy and white striped Ralph Lauren fabric and tricked out with all the amenities, I think someone might want to transport this to their Florida vacation home!
Thanks to Sam, you’re getting a preview, as the event opens to the public on Friday! To read more about Sam’s inspiration, check out this recent post by Quintessence.
Better yet, you can see Sam’s vignette, along with those of other talented young designers at the Southport Congregational church in Southport, CT this Friday, Nov 4 – Sun, Nov 6.
