New York Apartment of Nelson and Happy Rockefeller – Living Room

Photograph Published in Architectural Digest (September/October 1976) with an Article Titled “Jean-Michel Frank Remembered” by Van Day Truex

“… For Mr. Rockefeller [Frank] created the furniture, carpets and lighting fixtures for a room designed by the architect Wallace K. Harrison–a large wood-paneled room with two chimney places; Matisse had executed a mural framing one fireplace, and Léger had painted a fresco surrounding the other. Frank’s interesting approach included gilt armchairs grouped around the Matisse. Adapted from Louis XVIII models, they impart a ballroomlike spirit. Elsewhere in the room [Frank] used low tables, low chairs, and armchairs inspired by Louis XV pieces, with cane paneling and frames covered entirely in leather. Diego Giacometti executed the lamps and andirons, and the multitalented Christian Bérard designed the large Aubusson carpet.”
