It’s fascinating to see how great design transcends space and time. It’s timeless. Take, for example, this marvelous room designed by Angela Donghia for Ralph Lauren in the seventies. It’s still perfection almost fifty years later.
Donghia extended his design mindset beyond the room and considered the total environment. He liked simple lines, sensual textures and pure materials. Trademark “Donghia touches” included the use of silver grey, grey flannel, fat furniture and paying attention to the ceiling. Sadly, he was taken far too soon–yet another talented creative who fell victim to the AIDS epidemic. Luckily for us, his legacy endures and continues to inspire.
