Fine French Furniture II

Here is the Wrightsman Living Room in Palm Beach, mentioned in the earlier FFF post. I read that the house has since been torn down. This room is one of my favorite creations from the past, and was designed by Denning and Fourcade.

There is a house in Naples on the beach that was also decorated by Bob Denning, which was featured in "Architectural Digest".

I've always been intrigued by their work, and enjoy the very French massing of objects, colors, furnishings, artworks, and patterns. I remember going to the Vertical Club in NY and seeing Mr. Denning there in his workout attire, exercising along with yours truly, Mary McFadden, Mr. Trump, Brooke Shields, Fabio, and Dr. Ruth ! What a trip ! DF
