The Textured Interior: The Fabric Designs of D.D. and Leslie Tillett and the Next Generation

16 October 2012 from 6:30pm to 6:30pm

The luxurious fabrics crafted by D.D. and Leslie Tillett--eclectic, bold and textured--were used by the decorators Sister Parrish and Albert Hadley in the Kennedy White House. Join us for this special evening of presentations and conversation, co-hosted by Museum curator Donald Albrecht and NYSID professor Judith Gura, which will explore how contemporary textile designers, fabric houses, and interior designers are approaching their work and building on the legacy of the Tilletts. Speakers will include Steven Stolman, president of Scalamandre Fabrics; textile designer Lori Weitzner, and interior designer Vincente Wolf.
