Jesse Kornbluth at HeadButler Serves Up a Generous Dose of Mark Hampton

If you're in the market for a cultural concierge, or in other parlance are looking for a reliable filter, you couldn't get much better than Jesse Kornbluth, aka your Head Butler. We're thrilled he turned his attention to Duane Hampton's beautiful book just published by Rizzoli,  MARK HAMPTON:  An American Decorator, saying, among much else: "You can be dazzled by these pictures and conclude, “Beautiful, yes, but every client is so rich, every room is so big --- there’s not a single idea here that I can use.” And you’d be right. This isn’t a do-it-yourself-guide to making champagne rooms on a beer budget. It’s something else: a high-wire act, about balancing money and taste but caring less about either than about comfort."

You can see Duane and buy the book at any of the following events:
