Thank you so much to those of you who joined us for “An Evening at The Interior Design Building with Bryan Batt,” with the charming, witty and dashing author, designer, actor and star of Mad Men, Bryan Batt. The evening was presented by the dealers at New York’s venerable Interior Design Building at 306 East 61st Street, an amazing resource for museum-quality, highly collectible antiques, art and original home furnishings and accessories. We were thrilled to be joined by New York’s top Interior Designers, Architects, Editors, Publishing Executives and so many other special guests. Guests secured their very own copy of Bryan Batt’s poignant and humor-saturated memoir “She Ain’t Heavy, She’s My Mother” and got to get their book signed. Design aficionados took the opportunity to shop and explore the 7 floors of the Interior Design Building, open for “Evening Hours” in partnership with our media partner for the event: 1st Dibs. Participating Showrooms included: Lucca & Co, Lee Calicchio, Sentimento, Liz O’Brien, John Rosselli, Doris Leslie BlauAtlantic Gallery, C.J. Peters, Suzanne Golden Antiques, Amy Perlin Antiques and Niall Smith.
