Van Day Truex, & ‘Truex American Furniture’

Van Day Truex (1904-79) may be the most significant interior designer that you have never heard.

I recently had the opportunity to meet with Scott Himmel to learn about the offerings in the launch of  Truex American Style, a very exciting new line of furniture inspired by Van Day Truex, and his illustrious friends and colleagues including Billy Baldwin, and Francis Elkins, other important American designers of the period (and a few legendary taste-makers thrown in for good measure.)

It bears mentioning that philanthropist Brooke Astor (1902-2007) described Truex as “one of the most charming men I ever knew”, and Albert Hadley (1920-2012) said that “No one influenced American interior design more [than Van Day Truex]”.
