House
Susan Gutfreund hardly needs an introduction as the well-known interior designer, society hostess and wife of financier John Gutfreund, but even so, when you meet her, and see her Fifth Avenue duplex, it’s the stuff of novels.

Michael Aram

House
Although designer Michael Aram’s West Village home is quintessential New York glam, we found that we spent most of our time talking about his home and his life in India, where he spends most of the year, and where he has his workshop.

Tudor Place and Hillwood

House
Washington Weekend. House Tours. Our nation’s capital has two house museums that are significant to our history, and relatively little known on the Washington tourist circuit and especially with the out of town tourists.

Carlos Aparicio

House
Eva Zeisel was born in 1906 in Hungary and grew up to become a world-renowned designer, initially working with ceramics, but later on working with all kinds of other materials, including glass, textiles, metal and wood.

Gaetano Pesce

House
Thoughtful, iconoclastic and humorous, Gaetano Pesce’s famous designs echo his personality. We interviewed him in his Soho workspace that was filled with objects that come directly from an unhindered imagination, and our conversation with him was similarly unguarded – boy, does he say what he thinks. He was brought up in Italy, the son of a p... READ MORE
