Paul Dupré-Lafon

Paul Dupré-Lafon (1900-1971) was known for his brilliant fusion of ultra fine materials – exotic woods, Hermès leathers, etc. – with a reductive architectural sensibility. His minimalist/luxe environments naturally resonate with more exuberant antique elements, as can be seen in the super chic Tom Ford boutique on Madison Avenue in New York city. Here Ford used architectural elements and furnishings designed by Dupré-Lafon, offsetting and energizing the effect with a few well selected antique pieces – Sublime!

I am pictured at the Liz O’Brien gallery standing in front of an important Dupré-Lafon cabinet in walnut raised on nickle runners. I better find a client with a massive space to accommodate such a monumental piece! O’Brien’s also has a fantastic Karl Springer coffee table covered in brown python and a wonderful round table by Silas Seandel that caught my eye.

I am wearing a grey flannel suit by Gucci, vintage brown silk pocket square, a Tom Ford shirt in pale blue cotton glenn plaid, Seaman Schepps silver pearl and pale blue Sapphire cufflinks, a dusty olive with brown windowpane wool tie by Ralph Lauren, brown leather belt by Hermes and brown suede cap toe shoes by Gucci.
