Go Inside 15 Designers’ Own Homes

When interviewed for the July/August 1976 story on his Manhattan home, Albert Hadley said, “I can tell you that this apartment represents many years of accumulation.” This mind-set is reflected in his study, where a bulletin board he covered in treasured photos and mementos serves as a “changeable tapestry.”

Albert Hadley 101

The dining room has a light blue ceiling, a favorite Hadley hue for the upper plane. The American Empire mahogany armoire is topped by a Tibetan gong. Next to them are two works on paper by Connecticut artist Mark Sciarillo, also a metalworker, who made the sculpted bronze base of the living room's coffee table. The vellum lampshade, the Eyelet gold-on-ivory wallpaper, and the chairs are all Hadley's designs.

Honoring Albert Hadley

perhaps one of the most famous rooms Mr. Hadley ever designed...for Brooke Astor!
