Duane Hampton is the author of Mark Hampton: An American Decorator. She is the widow of the late Mark Hampton and the mother of both Alexa Hampton Papageorgiou and Kate Hampton. Her new book, published by Rizzoli, documents the lifework of Mark Hampton. It is a celebration of the career of the late interior designer Mark Hampton (1940–1998), whom the New York Times called "an icon of American Style." Rich with original materials including Hampton’s watercolors, sketches, and notebooks, as well as hundreds of images of Hampton’s important commissions, and impeccably researched and intimately written by his widow, Duane Hampton, this will be a visual feast for everyone interested in interiors as well as an important addition to the history of interior design. In addition, she is the author of The Art of Friendship, a compilation of Mark Hampton’s watercolors. The Mark Hampton Collection has been continuously made since its launch in 1988.
Mariette Himes Gomez is the author of the newly released book, Apartments. This is the third in a series published by Harper Collins that began with Rooms, was followed by Houses and now finally Apartments. These beautiful books reflect the beautifully appointed rooms, houses and apartments that Mariette has created for her clients. A book case is also being made available to house the complete works. The Mariette Himes Gomez Collection for Hickory Chair was introduced in 2002.
Thomas O'Brien is the author of American Modern by Abrams. This is the first book by Thomas O'Brien. Abrams quotes "Important design principles such as architectural authenticity, color relationships, correctness of scale, and informed collecting are threaded through a practical narrative that reads like a master class in interior design. American Modern is an inspiring design volume that will redefine the way readers think about modern interiors."
The first book signing for this beautiful book is being held today in New York. We are proud to introduce his new furniture collection and host two book signings. The Thomas O'Brien Collection by Hickory Chair was introduced in 1999.
