Greenwich Historical Society Presents an Evening with World Renowned Interior Designer Steven Gambrel
Greenwich, CTApril 11, 2019
Celebrated interior designer and connoisseur of historical styles, Steven Gambrel, was a guest lecturer at a special cocktail reception at the Greenwich Historical Society on April 11, which was followed by a signing of his recently published cloth-bound tome: Perspectives. Event co-chairs included Catherine Tompkins, Ann Ogilvy, Dara O’Hara and Mimi Moulton. Other past distinguished lecturers have included Bunny Williams, Jeffrey Bilhuber, Charlotte Moss, Miles Redd and others.
Gambrel gave insights into his unique sensibility with recent projects that are featured in Perspectives, including his nineteenth-century townhouse in New York City’s West Village, a Bridgehampton beach house, a rustic, refined Zurich estate, the luxurious Astor Suite in Manhattan’s Plaza Hotel and a charming sea captain’s house in Sag Harbor.
Steven Gambrel’s designs feature compelling reinterpretations of the past coupled with a sense of place. His work is featured consistently in the world’s leading design publications. Architecture and Design described him as “one of today’s greatest talents” and he has been included in Architectural Digest’s “AD 100.”
His eponymous West Greenwich Village-based firm, S.R. Gambrel, Inc., specializes in residential and commercial commissions, as well as customer product and furnishings.
This is the first designer event that the Historical has hosted at their beautiful, reimagined campus. The gathering welcomed over 75 guests and Watson’s Catering and Events provided a wonderful array of hors d’oeuvres.CLICK AN IMAGE TO ENLARGE
