Van Day Truex - The Man Who Defined 20th Century Taste & Style

Van Day Truex is widely regarded as the father of 20th American design. Under his leadership, Parsons School of Design became one of the most influential schools in interior design and fashion in United States, and his legacy as the Art Director of Tiffany & Co which "he transformed into a model of unprecedented style and grace."

1904 - 1979
" No one influences American interior design
more than Van Day Truex."
Albert Hadley.

I admired his impeccable taste and inspired by his timeless interior design. Below are some pictures of his interior works between 1940s and 50s, and they still look fresh in 2009!
