Books and Birthdays

Ellie Cullman with the Cullman & Kravis Associates team.
On Monday night night at the Park Avenue Armory, Cullman & Kravis hosted a book launch party for From Classic To Contemporary Decorating With Cullman & Kravis, the third book written by Ellie Cullman and Tracey Pruzan.

From modest revisions to ground-up construction and complete renovations, 14 interiors are featured in the book — all a collaboration between Ellie and her design partners Lee Cavanaugh, Sarah Ramsey, Claire Ratliff, and Alyssa Urban. 

Among the guests at the book launch party: Lucy and Mike Danziger, Jackie Weld Drake, Barbara Georgescu, Laurie and Peter Grauer, Marlene Hess, Jill Kargman, Thomas Kligerman, Heather Leeds, Gillian and Sylvester Miniter, Susanne and Bill Pritchard, Newell Turner, Peter Pennoyer, and Saundra Whitney.
