About Elsie De Wolfe

Elsie De Wolfe (1865-1951) was the first woman to create an occupation as an interior designer where none had existed before. In her quest to be admitted to the highest ranks of society, she introduced some of the most stylish and tasteful ideas into the American home. Her seminal work, The House in Good Taste, is lauded as an timeless guide for interior decorators. Albert Hadley has been an interior designer for sixty years. In 1962, he partnered with Sister Parish and founded Parish-Hadley Associates, the legendary design firm synonymous with classic American elegance. His clients have included Brooke Astor, Happy Rockefeller, Oscar de la Renta, and Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols. He now operates a smaller, more streamlined design firm known simply as Albert Hadley Inc.
