Andree Putman - RIP Iconic Interior Designer

Today we mourn the passing of the famed French illustrious interior designer Andree Putman. Her work once once described as...

"A taste setter, much in the French style: elegant, sophisticated, feminine and absolutely glamorous. As well as multiple objects and furniture, there is her refined interior design work, which ranges from the most luxurious hotels in New York, Hong Kong and Paris to the shops of Anne Fontaine and Guerlain and the offices of French ministers and presidents: très chic."
Her stylized designs grace the homes of esteemed tastemakers throughout Paris.  Her furniture designs remain, long copied by both domestic and international furniture makers.  In addition, she collaborated with Christofle, Ralph Pucci on Mannequins, Dornbracht bath fittings and so much more.  Born to a wealthy family in Lyon, France luxury was in her blood and never left.  She was born with a silver spoon and later in her career designed them as well.  Her work will long live, and I thank her for her unbelievable contribution to the world of interior design.  One of the reasons I love it so!
