WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

Jean de Merry


I’m thrilled that the fantastic Jean de Merry showroom has opened an outpost at the Design and Decoration Building here in New York City! Jean de Merry has a spectacular line of furnishings based on the designs of some of my favorite iconic French designers, including the ultimate “decorateur des millionaires,” Paul Dupre-Lafon.

I love his work in particular for its beauty and versatility – perfect for bringing a sense of timeless design to a more modern interior or for adding a bit of modern refinement to a more classic interior. Either way Dupre-Lafon furniture is a sure fire way to elevate an interior with an ultra chic touch.

I’m pictured here admiring a simply gorgeous Axel coffee table with benches, produced in an antiqued parchment and bronze inlaid ebonized metal frame with antiqued bronze accents.

I’m wearing a Navy cotton pique peaked lapel jacket by Gucci, navy and white silk polka dot pocket square by Battistoni, Turnbull and Asser navy cotton shirt with contrast white collar and french cuffs, Seaman Schepps silver pearl and pale blue sapphire cufflinks, navy linen pinstripe pants by Gucci, Hermes navy blue leather belt with silver buckle and Gucci navy blue suede loafers.
