24 Statement-Making Fireplace Ideas From the AD Archive

A famous design by Albert Hadley

Brown may never have looked more convincing than in that Albert Hadley living room. The interior, photographed in July 1976, is set in the decorator’s own apartment in New York City. The white cladding of the fireplace matches that of the quartet of chairs, while the remarkable mirror dates from the 17th century. There is a large wooden giraffe in one corner.

Lee Radziwill’s apartment

In Lee Radziwill’s Manhattan living room, magenta tones permeate the room. In the foreground, a velvet-covered sofa blends in with its surroundings. Behind it, a marble fireplace is crowned by a traditional bust and a gilded mirror. This image was included in the July / August 1975 issue of Architectural Digest.

Ted Kennedy’s Virginia Library

In the September / October 1973 issue of Architectural Digest, McLean, Virginia, the home of Senator Edward Kennedy, was featured.
