Drawing, Rendering of Door Wall Elevation of Dining Room, Agnes Miles Carpenter Apartment, 950 Fifth Ave., New York
Designer and decorator Jules Bouy embraced the use of wrought iron in decorative furnishings. In this rendering from 1926 for the dining room of Agnes Miles Carpenter on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, Bouy proposes a holistic interior scheme that features iron furniture set against white walls with accent colors of gray and blue. This elegant drawing, which is made with graphite and blue crayon, highlights the modernity of iron as a decorative material and as an organizing theme in interior design.
