“It’s a dream come true to be opening in New York,” said Christopher Guy Harrison of his latest atelier. The Mademoiselle suite, inspired by the glamorous lifestyle of Coco Chanel, shows off furniture notable for its rare combination of elegance and invention, wit and charm- hinting at the Belle Epoque period of the past, it is now designed for the present- hinting at a sexy deliberate Mademoiselle with a purposeful outlook. The Studio, Bachelor and Couples suites were filled with guests marveling at the unique pieces that will surely be the antiques of our time.
