Albert Hadley

Our entire industry is celebrating the great American interior designer, Albert Hadley (1921-2012).  He was born in Nashville, TN and was a graduate of the Parson School of Design in New York and Paris.  His long time design partner was Sister Parish, and they together made Parish-Hadley, Associates in 1962. Hadley won numerous design awards and worked with a variety of styles including modern, Victorian, and Georgian.  Some of Hadley's clients included Oscar de la Renta, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, The Gettys, The Astors, and Diane Sawyer.  Albert Hadley was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 1986.  He will be missed by many.
