Slim Aarons

Famed society photographer Slim Aarons captured an era of elegance and refinement, from sophisticated Park Avenue parties to the relaxed environs of sunny Palm Beach. ‘Park Avenue Party’ from 1952 shows Slim Hawks (nee Nancy Gross, former wife of director Howard Hawks) chatting with Vogue editor Diana Vreeland (1903 – 1989) and her husband Reed at Kitty Miller’s New Year’s Eve party in Park Avenue, New York. Unabashedly chic and timeless.

Chinoiserie Influenced: Herend Foo Dogs

herend pair imperial foo dogs chinoiserie

Introducing the Imperial Foo Dogs from Herend of Hungary. Dressed in the dramatic chinoiserie pattern called Macao, the saturated tones come from the use of enamel colors. A more complex and painstaking technique, only the most seasoned Herend artists are entrusted with such work.  The pair makes for a dramatic addition to any decor, and available as a limited edition of 250.

Take some more inspiration from some of our favorite chinoiserie interiors, elegant reflections of the popular 17th century Chinese influenced design.
