Musings about vintage design furniture

Fay meets Florence

with one comment

We watched Network last night. 1976 was a terrific year for US movies. Lumet knew how to film New York, and the first shots panning the MGM building midtown (one of the numerous buildings designed by Emery Roth & Sons)  show that he knew his modern architecture repertoire.

But the true reason for this post is that we could not help spotting the Knoll Partners desk in the corner office of the smart, unscrupulous and ambitious TV exec Diana Christensen. Cool and sleek: a good match. It does not harm the eye that Faye Dunaway is sitting on it.

Produced in mahogany, oak,  rosewood, teak and ebonized wood

The drawers are nicely concealed
