Hands down, our favorite fellow in the design world is Albert Hadley. HE IS ICONIC! And the best part of that is that he has no idea. He is actually from Nashville, Tennessee and began studying design at the Parsons School in New York City. He worked for several companies before he landed famously with Sister Parish forming Parish Hadley in 1971. His rooms have made design history spanning from the Kennedy White House to Mrs. Astor's library.
Although he's been at it for years, we can not get enough of his timeless projects.
One of both of our favorite New York stores, Gerald Bland, offers a collection of sketches penned by this legendary designer.
Just look at his business ad...does it get any more chic than this...NOPE!
