Pierre Paulin, 1927-2009- Interior and Furniture designer. He simplified forms and participated in the development and use of stretch fabric that changed the way we thought about upholstery. This exhibit at the Center Georges-Pompidou in Paris was so thrilling. The simplicity of the shapes and his ingenious use of scale and textiles-this man created designs that are classics. Several short films were part of the exhibit, with a lineup of several of his chairs that were so very comfortable.
Next to the pool is a Whitman-designed wood and metal bench, fabricated by Chris Zurga. Two vintage, round brass sculptures from Jeff’s Antiques help fill the pool’s negative space. And, flanking the door to the home are a pair of Donghia wall sconces.
