New York, NY
CetraRuddy was honored to participate in the prestigious annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House. The firm created its vision of a fashion editor’s salon, transforming a room in a post-war building lacking architectural detail into an oasis of understated luxury. Materials such as welted silk banquet, silver-leafed moldings, leather tile floors, custom-designed Venetian glass, and beaded leather ottomans defined an environment of detailed craftsmanship. A stylish mannequin in a Carolina Herrera dress gave the room its dramatic focal point and provided the inspiration for custom-designed curtains, referencing the iconic scene in Gone with the Wind in which Scarlett O’Hara fashions a dress from green drapery.
