Sitting Room - The Sun Also Rises
Designer Statement: “Boys will be Boys masculine glamour of a bygone era. Our design is a tribute to the maverick man of the Hollywood Classic era. The adventurer, the rebel, and renegade but with the polish of a smoking jacket and a whiskey. We will be creating a masculine room with far flung ethnic influences that reflect the adventurer’s collection and his supposed home life.”
