H. SAMUEL: Salle a Manger

Gutfreund Residence, New York

Serena Boardman of Sothebys international real estate also has the listing for this amazing apartment on Fifth Avenue which the king of Wall Street lived in with his wife Susan-  This apartment at one time was the most expensive in Manhattan going for the asking price of $120 million but it has now been reduced to 59 million- I always admired the Winter garden which this dining room opens into-
Fin de Siècle beauty!  The stripe on the walls in this dining room reminds me of the Getty drawing room also on Fifth- as decorated by Parish- Hadley many years ago.  DF

UPDATE: see my post on Chartwell, the Perenchio estate in Los Angeles, also decorated by Henri Samuel !  DF
