Ruth Lynford, My Life in Design (Hardback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new version by new supplier.


A autoiographical journey through the life of interior designer Ruth Lynford. Ruth Lynford, President of Lynford Limited in New York, is inspired by design. She graduated in architecture from Washington University in St. Louis in 1946. Ruth then set out for Manhattan with her first husband, Franklyn. She joined a leading architectural firm but quickly encountered prejudice as a woman in a male profession. Ruth then broke stride and stepped into interior design, which was then in its infancy. This is the story of a trailblazer, who dared to be different. Through images and personal reflections, this book invites its audience to experience Ruth Lynford's lively coming of age as a person and a professional. Ruth's life encapsulates the American Dream - from humble beginnings in the Midwest to a life of influence, glamour and style in New York and overseas.

SELLING POINTS: - Ruth studied the Beaux Arts and Bauhaus schools as well as philosophy at Washington University - Ruth is equally comfortable designing traditional and contemporary interiors - In 1984, Ruth founded Interior Designers for Legislation in New York, and by 1990 the profession of interior designer was recognised by the State of New York - Ruth has worked with leading global designers, including a long and fruitful association with Pierre Cardin, among others - The latest title from the Autobiographical Publishing Company, an imprint of the IMAGES Publishing Group 100 col.
