James Andrew at Frederick P Victoria

No doubt, many of you are familiar with the genius that is Fredrick P. Victoria. Since the 1930’s they have played a rather important role in defining what is chic in the interior design industry. I became an instant fan from the moment my mentor Albert Hadley took me to their ravishing gallery on East 55th Street many years ago. The selection of both vintage and bespoke possibilities there have always been quite endless.

I recently paid a visit to my exquisite friends Tony and Freddy Victoria there to see what beauties I might add to both my own and my clients’ collections. I’m always able to find something, as they have an almost overwhelming selection of objects, and in every style imaginable! Their atelier is now located in Long Island City, and a preview of their current floor model sale can be found of the fabulous Peak of Chic site or visit F.P. Victoria’s Floor Model Sale. Of course, one doesn’t really need an excuse to visit and peruse their incredible treasure trove – it is always worth a trip for the inspiration alone. All this being said, I urge you to take advantage of some of the remarkable bargains you’ll find at the wondrous Frederick P. Victoria, and prepare yourself to be delighted!

Spending a sublime afternoon with the Victorias, I’m sporting a Tom Ford era Gucci white linen jacket, linen plaid shirt in turquoise and lavender and black leather tasseled loafers, Tom Ford lavender silk mini herringbone weave pants, Ralph Lauren black alligator belt with sterling buckle, Charvet Paris turquoise silk pocket square and my fragrance is Creed Royal Water.

    Frederick P Victoria, Andrew I am in heaven whenever I see their offerings. Did you notice how much George Stacey used their services in his designs. I loved reading some of the history of this superb family owned company.

    What a fantastic picture of you! You look great! As for me, I would truly
    love to own a pair or two of the “New Barroux” chairs – in a grey painted finish with a beautiful chintz or velour gauffrage on them!
    Then I would pair these with a couple of Billy Baldwin slipper chairs in a Tillets or Quadrille print…oh don’t get me started!
    Have a great weekend!


  3. I hope you got those fabulous mirrored obelisks!!!
