Pamela Babey – BAMO
Pamela Babey is creating a dreamy Spring vignette for the entry of the show, depicting a garden sunset with cascading blossoms, on a fuchsia silk wallcovering, custom created by de Gournay. Her design will also incorporate a fantastic rococo 18th century Venetian carved giltwood, mirror glass-mounted marquise chair from Carlton Hobbs in New York. In her own words "This chair is utterly frivolous and fantastic, probably in the original fabric and every descriptive adjective made me excited. In addition, it is Venetian, which sealed the deal for me. One can see a chair or two with mirror inlay in the glass museum in Murano, but they are very rare. I can imagine it in my favorite Venetian Palazzo, Ca'Rezzonico."
Pamela Babey, with her signature fiery-red hair, boundless creative energy, and infectious laugh, is considered a visionary in the world of luxury interiors.
