Historical Design were delighted and 30 vintage chairs were delivered and set up as if on a fashion catwalk. All 17 windows on Fifth Avenue were used and the result was both chic and dramatic. Denis Gallion of Historical Design says it was a lot of paperwork with insurance etc. but added "Needless to say, we were pleased to have the exposure."
Antiques with Saks appeal
WE have heard a lot about antiques being out of fashion, and the best reply is that if antiques are presented stylishly they are always in fashion. Just look at a window of upmarket Fifth Avenue Manhattan store Saks during New York’s Fashion Week. The chief window designer of Saks called on East 61 St dealers Historical Design and said he had the idea of introducing Saks’ new shoe floor with high fashion shoes displayed on vintage chairs.
