"Van Day Truex is widely regarded as the father of twentieth-century American design. Under his leadership, Parsons School of Design became the foremost school for interior design and fashion in the United States, and he influenced generations of students entering these fields. But his greatest legacy - chronicled in Van Day Truex - is his long reign as design director at Tiffany & Co., which he transformed into a model for unprecedented style and grace. Interior designers, architects, fashion devotees, and furniture designers will treasure this portrait of Truex. This volume - illustrated throughout with color and black-and-white photographs - is a tribute to one of America's foremost designers."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
