Scalamandré Celebrates the Irish Georgian Society - Wednesday, 9/28/2011 3:24 PM
New York, NY… Scalamandré the legendary decorative fabric, wallcovering and trimmings house, rolled out its zebra carpet in support of the Irish Georgian Society-–those lovely folks who raise funds and awareness to restore and preserve the great architectural treasures of Ireland.
Steven Stolman, Scalamandré’s president, welcomed guests to the company’s iconic East Side townhouse, where everyone was literally surrounded by extraordinary damasks, brocades and prints as waiters passed spectacular hors d’oeuvre from King’s Carriage House courtesy of Liz King, an IGS board member. IGS president Peter Haveles fondly remembered Desmond FitzGerald, the Knight of Glin, who died recently, while Sheila O’Malley Fuchs announced that the society’s upcoming gala would be a tribute to The Knight’s lifetime commitment to the Irish Georgian Society.
There was sipping and schmoozing in true Irish style. Among the guests were Joe Fuchs, Kay and John McEnroe, Ambassador Anne Anderson, Loretta Brennan Glucksman, Jean Hutar, Louise Peabody and Edgar Lansbury, Amy Hoadley and Bob Gianos, Michel Witmer and Dr. Dino Rivera, Robert Rufino, Duane Hampton, author John Tiffany, Grace and Chris Meigher, Ellen Fitzsimons, Suzy Slesin, costume designer William Ivey Long, editors Jason Kontos, Carolyn Englefied, Eugenia Santiesteban Soto and a host of interior design luminaries that included Judy Hadlock, Scott Sanders, Keith Carroll, James Andrews, Dennis Rolland, Jonathan Tait, Christopher Spitzmiller, Eric Hilton, Ronald Bricke and Robert Passal and Pauline Metcalf.
